Best Worst Mistake Lyrics - If/Then

Broadway production (2014)
If/Then the Musical - Best Worst Mistake Lyrics

(performs Jason Tam & Anthony Rapp - Best Worst Mistake Lyrics)

You can guard your heart forever
Keep it safe and keep it sound
But love won't feel so heavy
If you spread that shit around

What is it that you're afraid of?
Being hurt, let down, destroyed
Well you know, it all can happen
And there's more you can't avoid

You're a die-hard, you're a radical
A fighter through and through
So tell me why you're so afraid of a cause that's new
And true
Like me and you

So man up, break out, dive in
There's no knowing how it ends
Until you got up and begin

Climb in, breathe deep, hold on
You can't know how good it gets
'Til you go or 'til it's gone

Be lost, be wary, be afraid
But don't hideout in the dugout while that final game is played
Make that trade
I'll be the best worst mistake you ever made

Really? Sports metaphors?

It's not that I don't love you
'Cos I don't not love you
And I'd lie to say I'm never sometimes always thinking of you

But when something's deeply felt
It seems shallow just to say
The thing that's expected
The same dull cliche

Like you're so sweet
(so it's scare-ifying(?), terrifying)
You're so fine
(and you're panicked in a sweat)
You're the one
(it's the nightmare of all nightmares)
Please be mine
(and the best you'll ever get)

'Cos you're in love
(Love is neat)
Love's a bitch
(Love is nice)
Love's a queen
(Let it go)
Love's a witch
(Pay that price)
Love is joy
(Love is true)
Love's a boy
(who loves you)
I love you
(I love you)
I love you
(I love you)
For all time
(For all time)
For all time

You tricked me into saying that.

It's too late, it's done, you're through
'Cos I said it, and you said it
And I know you meant it, too

So man up
(man up)
Break out
(break out)
Dive in
There's no knowing how it ends
Until at last we both begin

We're lost, we're lonely, we're afraid
But the sun will still be shining
When we come out of the shade

I'll be the best worst mistake you ever made
(best worst mistake)
I'll be the best worst mistake you ever made
(best worst mistake)
I'll be the best worst mistake you ever made
