Blue October - Mistakes lyrics

I need some time to make my way,
Through all this empathy,
I make no claims on why today,
Was never meant to be.

Don't let me go,
Pure emotion is telling you so,
Then I'm saved.
Don't let me go,
With the kind of mistake,
You're ready to make again.

I've tried so hard to understand,
Why you never planned to stay,
I'm tired of being the lonely man,
'cause it never went my way.
