Written by: Barry Gibb (1970)


I ain't got no claim to nothing,
I don't mess with anyone,
I walk my way
living in a masquerade.

And one day I looked behind me
at all the things I've done,
that's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
in a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
that's the first mistake
I ever made.

With a million hearts I've broken.
I never kept the score.
Memories of good love
hate to stay.

But I still remember someone
who loved me so much more,
that's the first mistake
I ever made.

So, when nothing's worth the living
and in the night I look above.
Prayed, about a million times
I prayed.

I know my story ended
when I lost my only love,
that's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
in a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
that's the first mistake
I ever made.
