WcOqtjO

Ariana shared the lyrics to the song through a tweet and reveal campaign. The catch to the lyric reveal was that the lyrics for the song were going to be written using emojis.

"Best Mistake" is the sixth track from Ariana Grande's sophomore album, My Everything. It was released on August 12, 2014 as a promotional single.[1]. The song features rapper Big Sean and wass Ariana's favorite song on the album.[2]

Trivia Edit

  • This is Ariana's second song that features Big Sean (he was also featured in "Right There") and the third song that Big Sean provided vocals for (he whispered the chorus in "Problem" but was uncredited).
  • Ariana tweeted lyrics to the song on March 14,[3] May 9,[4] and May 26, 2014.[5] On March 14, however, she tweeted "can't be without you, boy, you're mine," which was later changed to "and stop acting like we're blind" in the final version.
  • Big Sean's rap features lyrics referencing Ariana's mother, Joan.
  • Ariana first confirmed the song on June 28, 2014.[6]
  • Ariana shared a preview of the song on July 7, 2014.[7]
  • Her favorite line from the song is "Cause if the water dries up, the moon stops shining, stars fall, and the world goes blind, boy you know I'll be saving my love for you."

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
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
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?

[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

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

[Verse 2: Big Sean]
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 pickpockets
I guess to go the distance we might need to pit stop it
Hold up, I know love can 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, huh
And I feel like that everything we do is overdue
You asked 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 humans 'cept you, you a goddess
Only lying to you when I lie you 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

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande (Big Sean)]
(Best mistake you ever had) Break up, make up, total waste of time
(Best mistake you ever had) 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

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Cause you're the best mistake I've ever made
But we hold on, hold on
There's no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
But we hold on, hold on, yeah

[Outro: Ariana Grande (Big Sean)]
You're, you're, you're, you're
I'll be savin' my love for you, for you
(Best mistake you ever had) You're, you're
(Best mistake you ever had) You're, you're
I'll be savin' my love for you, for you
