Ariana Grande ft. Big Sean

Best Mistake

Ariana Grande

Verse 1

How soon do we forget how we felt? Dealing with emotions that never left
Playing with the hand that we were dealt in this game
So maybe I'm the sinner and you're the saint, gotta stop pretending what we ain't
Why we pointing fingers anyway? When we're the same

Ariana Grande

Pre
Chorus

Break up, make up, total waste of time
Can we please make up our minds and stop acting like we’re blind?
Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining
Stars fall and the world goes blind, boy you know I'll be savin' my love for you, for you

Ariana Grande

Chorus

Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made
But we hold on, and hold on boy
There's no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
But we hold on, yeah, hold on, hey

Big Sean

Verse 2

I guess time's wasting
Tick tocking, lip locking
How can we keep the feelings fresh?
How do we zip lock it?
Wear your heart up on your sleeve
So watch out for pick pockets
I guess to go the distance
We might need to pit stop it
Hold up
I know love could be a beach with no shore
I done count to ten, lost my temper and went back to four
I know sometimes it's hard to realize I'm the man that you need
I had a dream we branched out
Started a family tree - Look
And I feel like that everything we do is overdue
You ask why I love your mom so much
'Cause she's a older you
I wish that you were happy
I guess that's the one thing I should be providing
Ain't no number twos we both ones of ones
And we the oddest couple only human
Except you, you a goddess
Only lying to you when I lie it down just being honest
When you start as friends it's hard to say you're never going back
If I'm not the one then I'm the best mistake you ever had

Ariana Grande & Big Sean

Pre
Chorus

Break up, make up
  B-best mistake you ever had
Total waste of time
  B-b-best mistake you ever had
Can we please make up
Our minds
And stop acting like we're blind

Ariana Grande

Chorus

'Cause if the water dries up, and the moon stops shining
Stars fall, and the world goes blind
Boy, you know I'll be saving my love for you, for you

Ariana Grande

Chorus
(alt.)

Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made
But we hold on, hold on boy
There's no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
But we hold on, hey, hold on, boy

Ariana Grande & Big Sean

Outro

You're, you're, you're, you're
Mmm.. I be savin' my love for you, for you, yeah
  B-b-b-best mistake you ever had
You're, you're, yo-you're, you're
  B-b-b-best mistake you ever had
Mmm.. I be savin' my love for you, for you
