[Intro]
A Bm7 F#m7 D
 
[Verse 1]
A                 Bm7          F#m7       D
I've thumbed the dog-eared pages of my paperback life
A              Bm7        F#m7             D
Re-read confusing passages that never worked out right
D                   E                D               C#m7
All the muddles and miscommunications that landed me here
F                  G                       F
All the fights and late night conversations
F              E
All the wasted tears
 
[Chorus]
E           A       D          Bm    E
Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
           A          D          Bm     E
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake
      A        D     Bm     E
And I don't regret a single day
              D       Bm         E    A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
     D       Bm         E    A
(The best mistakes I've ever made)
 
[Verse 2]
A             Bm7               F#m7             D
I've tried to throw the past out I've tried to shed my skin
A                Bm7          F#m7                D
But the days go by so fast now I kind of like remembering
D              E                     D               C#m7
The young man sitting at the station in a world of his own
F                  G                  F
The new sound, the overnight sensation
F                     E7
Flying so high that I couldn't let go
 
[Chorus]
E           A       D          Bm    E
Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
           A          D          Bm     E
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake
      A        D     Bm     E
And I don't regret a single day
              D       Bm         E    A    D Bm E A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
              D       Bm         E    A    D Bm E A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
 
[Bridge]
F#m          D        A       E
I did my time on the merry-go-round
Em              Bm     Bm/A    Bm/G# Bm/G F#m
And if I had to choose between then  and  now
F#m         A  Bm7 F#m7 D x2
I'd choose now
D                   E                D               C#m7
All the muddles and miscommunications that landed me here
F                  G                       F
All the fights and late night conversations
F              G
All the wasted tears
 
[Chorus]
E           A       D          Bm    E
Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
           A          D          Bm     E
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake
      A        D     Bm     E
And I don't regret a single day
              D       Bm         E    A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
 
[Outro]
E           A       D          Bm    E
Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
            A       D          Bm           E
I've been a poet, a preacher, a fool, and a rake
      A        D     Bm     E
And I don't regret a single day
              D       Bm         E    A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
     D       Bm         E    A
(The best mistakes I've ever made)
              D       Bm         E    A    D Bm E A
They were the best mistakes I've ever made

Re-read confusing passages that never worked out right

All the muddles and miscommunications that landed me here
All the fights and late night conversations
All the wasted tears

Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake
And I don't regret a single day
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
(The best mistakes I've ever made)

I've tried to throw the past out
I've tried to shed my skin (Shed my skin)
But the days go by so fast now
I kind of like remembering

The young man sitting at the station in a world of his own
The new sound, the overnight sensation
Flying so high that I couldn't let go

Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake
And I don't regret a single day
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
They were the best mistakes I've ever made

I did my time on the merry-go-round
And if I had to choose between then and now
I'd choose now

All the muddles and miscommunications that landed me here
All the fights and late night conversations
All the wasted tears

Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
I'm not an angel, but then again I'm no fake (Wasted tears)
And I don't regret a single day
They were the best mistakes I've ever made

Well I have made my fair share of mistakes
I've been a poet, a preacher, a fool, and a rake
And I don't regret a single day
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
(The best mistakes I've ever made)
They were the best mistakes I've ever made
