There's that song :

And even if i listen to it several times I always mishear the lyrics the same way...

Here are the lyrics according to Google with what I hear in parenthesis :

You were a child
Crawling on your knees toward him (I hear strolling personnally)
Making momma so proud
But your voice is too (i hear still) loud
We like to watch you laughing
Picking insects off of plants (I hear You pick the insects off the plants)
No time to think of consequences

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

The water is warm
But it's sending me shivers
A baby is born
Crying out for attention (sometimes I hear protection)
Memories fade
Like looking through a fogged (It sometimes sounds like far to me) mirror
Decisions too
Decisions are made and not bought (I hear maybe not a popular thought)
But I thought (That seem to not exist at all when I hear the song) this wouldn't hurt a lot
I (I hear and) guess not

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Control (I hear enjoy) yourself
Take only what you need from it (I hear them)
A family of trees wanting (I hear falling) to be haunted

Is it because I'm not a native English speaker, that I misunderstand some of the song's lyrics? Are there songs you mishear the lyrics of?

No, it's called a "mondegreen", https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mondegreen .
Buffalaxing refers to intentionally misinterpreting lyrics from a different language based on their similarity with some English words or phrases.

It's kinda a joke. The song "loose yourself" by eminem has been edited so it's mostly about "mom's spaghetti". Search for " eminem - mom's spaghetti" on youtube

Then it's just a lousy edit ala Youtube poop.
Prolly lacks creativity as well...

Anyway,
I got that in me car a lot.
Loud music, upped the treble a bit so that the voices are a bit clearer.
(Due to the large variety of music I play in me car, I can't really remove half me car audio just to tweak the amp for that particular genre)
Usually when Auto-tune is used in a song is the moment where one start to mishear lyrics



From 2.55 onwards:

All alone, all alone trying to read all the faces unspoken.
In other words I must be broken.
Hypnotize me, make me believe that this was all just a dream.
I wish I was.

Weaponize me, make me believe that I must be dreaming
I wish I was.

Whilst it's just "Hypnotize me" in the original.
