Mistake in Parting
Chelsea Wolfe Lyrics


Your face is as clean as any boy I had ever seen
And your taste was so familiar
Oh I swore I'd lick your skin before and
I don't want to be a mistake in parting from her
Did I make you realize that she's the only one you'd die for?

I pined for the day when my skin melted away
And you held me close and declared, "this is all you."
Was it just that we are into some sort of innocent unknown's
And are you satisfied now that you've had me?

Now I fear you'll never take me in again it was far from perfect
And reminds me of the places where people met
We laid together in one bed
Now the absence of your kiss is plaguing me
Your light shining In the light of day

I don't want to be here I don't know where I want to be
Or where I am going I am just so un-satisfied
I look out for aggressive places I have loved and been
People I have lost along the way now you are one of them.
We are a father's dove, a mother's we are a vision of despair
And knowing that I knew you when they said
Makes me want to die in bed too
Your light shining In the light of day
Oh your light shining In the light of day

Now you've got your words, you got your girl
And I sit here wondering
What does she have, that I don't have?
She's got her plans, she's got your hands
Around her waist and I ask myself
Is this forever? So unreal

Oh your domination with this is all about
You took the easy way out.
My heart is much too sick for this
For this I need someone who will tell me
The truth not just pieces of information
That make me feel like ya liked me

Oh I think your playing both sides of the fence
Your eyes burning the light of day
Are you telling the truth?
Are you telling the truth?
Are you telling the truth?
It's such a simple world
Where we just create all these problems
And then suffer as we try to solve them
The human condition is so fucked up

And miserable, that's why we need love
Someone tell me where I can find it
Please... I need it, someone to hold me
Close and declare you are my one and only love.
Please... I need it, someone tell me
Where I can find this love
Your light shining In the light of day
Oh your light shining In the light of...
day

I fell in love with Chelsea's music before this album was released. I heard almost all these songs live when she was doing very small performances and open mics. Some I heard the first recorded versions because after talking to her the first time I met her we became Myspace friends and she had several recordings on there. 


The music sounded more clear with just her guitar. I still love it. The songs are awesome and we were just in our early 20's then, the lyrics are great, even if not what we'd write in our mid-30's. I'm a writer too (stopped writing songs, but I write everything else) and I get it. 


While I got praise for my writing in those days, what I'm writing now is light-years ahead, there's a depth to it that I hadn't developed yet. Also as an artist my identity and what I want to portray and have published are different, back then I wanted everything I wrote to be published. I'm more discerning now, I have specific things to say a certain style that represents my artistry. I'm sure the person who made this album is still there and could easily make a song in the same vein as these, but then she would edit it more, refine it more, add more layers and that is how you get the Chelsea Wolfe music that is currently being released.


This was the first Mp3 I ever purchased and I only wish I still had it. It's still the soundtrack for that period of my life. For instance Inside A Girl sounded completely different and I was not fond of the change when I first got the album. Nothing, No One and Your Name remind me of most of the music I heard her playing at the time and were fairly (if not completely) the same as the way I heard.

This is a brilliant album. Chelsea's voice gets lost much of the time on her most recent stuff, but here we can feel its true richness and beauty. Utterly stunning. Yes, some of her newer songs I like, but none have the honesty, melody and true emotional vulnerability this album offers. Truly beautiful. Thank you Chelsea, thank you Alex for posting it. I now know why she is so revered and respected. This is unbelievable, I'm privileged to have heard this enchanting music.

"Winter" is a masterpiece. Just for this song the album would deserve a proper release

ChuckHitler

It definitely sounds like someone is trying to pull puppet strings on her, but you still find the Chelsea wolfe easter egg underneath it all. She has a spooky way of composing that sticks out like a sore thumb, even when caked with layers of "generic female singer songwriter" frosting. It feels as though this is what Amy Lee attempted to sound like. I still like it though the lyrics feel insincere. but the music feels (mostly) genuine.

I honestly love this album, but I can understand why Chelsea's embarrassed by it. It's a really emotionally honest album about what it feels like to be like, 20-something and have a really bad breakup that actually is probably not as big a deal as you think it is. It'd be embarrassing to look back and realize how dramatic she was being, and also like, how absurdly melodramatic the lyrics are and stuff. But that's also what I love about the album; it's rough and embarrassing and melodramatic in a way that captures that feeling of being that age and having a big heartbreak better than something more refined could.

Also as someone else mentioned, it is nice to hear her voice in a more "clean" recording.

Lee W Cottam

brilliant album, totally underrated and how brilliant is 'Winter'???

Dylan Withers

This might be when she was being nudged in the traditional singer/songwriter/popstar direction by her label. It sounds nice but I agree with her not wanting to put it out; it would've been too much of a stretch from this to 'Grime' and would've developed the wrong fanbase most likely. But this is a nice easter egg for those interested for sure.

Matthew Fgs

Exactly, and you can't compare that with new Goth Queen.

I absolutely love the album! Might be it's a lot too personal for her own taste...
