My Mistake (Was To Love You) Diana Ross
(P. Sawyer/G. Jones)

My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake was to give you all
Tell the world  First I had you
In the palm of my hand
But I let you slip through Like rain to sand
At the beginning When I didn't care
Like my own reflection You were always there

My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake was to give you all
Tell the world 
You were sweeter Then my very own skin
But what did I do for you
Not a thing In front of my friends You broke me down Since then darling It's hard to track you down

My mistake was to love you, boy
Love you, boy
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world 
Many a smile You put om ny face
But I paid dearly With the tears I taste 
My tenderness Made you cold, not sweet 'Cause if a girl loves you
You only call her weak

My mistake was to love you, boy
Love you, boy
My mistake was to give my all
Tell the world 
My mistake was to love you, girl
Love you, girl
My mistake was to give you all
Tell the world
