Mistake
Mike Oldfield Lyrics


There was a mistake under the weather
One shout's gonna turn into another
It's a heartbreak under the weather
Standing out in the cold

Highway is frightening
Rain hammering on your window
I hate sheet lightning
You reach for the telephone

[Chorus]
Mistake under the weather
One shout's gonna turn into another
It's a heartbreak under the weather
Standing out in the cold

I pray for blue skies
Rain hammering on your window
On your way, you wonder why
You're spending on your own

[Chorus]

And talking on the radio
You never know how to say
Anything's a plan that could be on your mind
It could vanish in a tragical way
Get lost in dreaming
Rain hammering on your window
Try to catch the meaning
You're dancing on your own

[Chorus]

And talking on the radio
You never know how to say
Anything's a plan that could be on your mind
It could vanish in a tragical way

There was a mistake under the weather
One shout's gonna turn into another
It's a heartbreak under the weather
Standing out in the cold

It was a mistake under the weather
One shout's gonna turn into another
It's a heartbreak under the weather
Standing out in the cold

There was a mistake under the weather
One shout's gonna turn into another
It's a heartbreak under the weather
Standing out in the cold

It was a mistake!

How on earth was this not a massive hit? A very catchy bright little number with the fabulous voice of Maggie Reilly. Sublime.

Colleen Beattie

It was a it in my area.

Ansgar Mollenhauer

Too good to be a hit. Taste is selective

Ya todo un clásico. Mike forever!!!

The Shawn Murphy Journal

The 80;s female rock vocalists might be the best; eg Maggie Riley was unknown back then
