The sum total of my mistakes is what got me here.

A little history...


MISTAKES

man, i made a mess of montreal
i fought and failed in philly
denver was a dead end
and jersey, hell, that was just silly
nearly found that nashville rainbow
until it all came undone
somehow i landed here in paridise
all sand and sea and sun

   bumps and bruises and bad breaks
   been bounced along the way
   but all and all I'd say I've had a ball
   the sum total of my mistakes
   is what got me here today
   so maybe they weren't mistakes at all

teri really turned my head
man i thought i was in love
when that fell through i took up with tammy
what the hell was i thinking of
broken promises and broken hearts
all played out in song
figured i was destined for lonely
and then... you came along

   bumps and bruises and bad breaks
   been bounced along the way
   but all and all I'd say I've had a ball
   the sum total of my mistakes
   is what got me here today
   so maybe they weren't mistakes at all

it's been a great life...
no mistake at all

Great writing as usual, Floyd, I love songs that tell a story.

I think when you reach a certain age (I'm in my 60s), assuming your current life is good, you can look back at all the stupid stuff you did when you were younger and see how it shaped the person you are now. I'm the same, wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe one or two things wink

This is really really good. Brevity is soul of wit, so allow my brief comment to suffice for an entire novel.

Cool song, as usual Floyd! The unfolding story and chorus payoff work really well.

Cheers

Floyd,
A cool, catchy summing up of a life. I like the way you punch out the "what got me here today" line and then get reflective again on the last line of the chorus
Beautifully sung, arranged, mixed and all that stuff.
Excellent song!

Robert

Floyd,

Excellent song and arrangement. I love the wistful feel of this - great vocal and the mix is stellar.

Awesome listen...

Another super song Floyd. Excellent lyric. Super story telling. Excellent backtrack. Guitar was very sweet. Super vocal and harmonies. Instruments and vocals so we so well placed in the mix. You are a master at this. Well done

Boy can we all relate Floyd!! A great song (again) from you that's just brimming reminders of our own realities of life! Very nice use of pushes and holds in this...you pulled this off in a great fashion with total fluid motion...not easy to do! Great effort again! Thanks, Torry.

Oh how I love that voice of yours
It shines on this as on all of

Another winner! This can get us all thinking about our past! I just refuse to tell my kids what I did long ago let alone do a song about it!

Everything, as usual, is perfect.

This is a keeper.

I love this FJ! Terrific hook. Personal and universal plus romance to make the country ladies go ahh. Great vocal, arrangement and mix.
This is my new fav of yours.

I like this one.

Nice production chops. And just the slightest hint of Jimmy Buffet hiding in there too.

Floyd,


Another Floyd Jane classic, love the guitar solo. And the lyrical theme is incredible, a truly wise song about the path of life itself.

Great job. Maybe every day wasn't so bad after all.

Quality delivery throughout.

Your phrasing is just so excellent, and the song has a fantastic powerful vibe.

Make no mistake about it.
