I’m sorry I was mean
I didn’t mean it
It’s just that I’ve been so unhappy
Bitter and tired

I’m mired in regret
It’s paralyzing
There I go again, overanalyzing
I see it in your eyes

I want to be someone else
Anybody else but who I am
I wish I were somewhere else
Anywhere else, but here I am

And I know I’m making things
More complicated
Than they have to be
But that’s just me defeating myself

You can’t take anymore
Can’t say I blame you
You’re showing me the door
I guess we’re both exhausted by it all


And I try to be up, and I try to be strong
But it’s hard when you’re so unkind
And I know that this place isn’t where I belong
Can you see how I’ve lost my mind?

I’m sorry I was mean
I didn’t mean it
But I was just returning fire
No wonder I’m so
