An Honest Mistake
The Bravery Lyrics


People
They don't mean a thing to you
They move right through you
Just like your breath
But sometimes
I still think of you
And I just wanted to
Just wanted you to know
My old friend,
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Sometimes
I forget I'm still awake
I fuck up and say these things out loud

My old friend,
I sweat I never meant for this
I never meant

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

People, they don't mean a thing to you
They move right through you, just like your breath
But sometimes I still think of you
And I just wanted you to know
My old friends
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake
Sometimes I forget I'm still awake
I fuck up and say these things out loud
My old friends
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant
Don't look at me…

I remember seeing this video on MTV back in 2005 in the mornings before going to school

@h k it actually was. I remember this song vividly from my teenage and high school years. It came out shortly before I turned 16. I'll be 32 in about 4 months time.

I don’t remember ever seeing any Bravery vids on MTV, but I did see them live at an outdoor festival in New Orleans that year, essentially opening for Nine Inch Nails & Queens Of The Stone Age. I jokingly referred to them as The Slavery because I felt they were slaves to the sounds of the ‘80s, but now I detect more of a ‘50s rockabilly / greaser influence filtered through ‘90s pop punk.

The old time when we had to wait all day long to see a clip (if we were lucky!) or had to record it on video to re-watch it later
Sounds like a century ago xD

The Bravery is like The Killers edgier older brother that rides around town all day on his motorcycle and smokes cigarettes. 🤣🤣🤣❤
I Love it.

I used to mix them up tbh.

At the time they both were coming out with big record, s...(at least for them, obviously).
The Killers (in particular Brandon Flowers) were really angsty about them BOTH being compared to New Order. Like only the Killers had the 'right' to be called that.
I really like The Killers and think they are the superior band (though I own both records from both bands when they came out back then), Flowers is very talented...however I remember thinking at the time what a yutz he was being.
I believe the description or analogies to New Order were accurate (if in slightly different ways). I remember the first time I heard The Bravery I myself thought they sounded like New Order and even played the sampler clips (this is SO long ago, wow!) over the phone to a friend that was a fellow big fan of New Order. Purely from a sound standpoint, I still think they sound more like New Order (especially this song and Unconditional). The Killers obviously have some influence from New Order, but their sound is more varied song-to-song and I can't pinpoint a song of theirs that sounds as definitively like New Order as The Bravery. Which, I guess I should point out, isn't a slight in the least. The Killers have a great songbook and are one of the few remaining artists that I haven't yet seen but still are on my list.
It is just very interesting that one of the top comments on this song was about something I (kind of bizarrely) remember so vividly from quite a while ago now.
Great song, either way, and I agree with the analogy, even if it might make Brandon Flowers wretch and tremble.

The Bravery is like The Killers if their lead singer broke away from their freaky mormon blood cult and had to deal with the ensuing fallout.
