They call me the apologist.
And now that I'm at peak.
You know at first it really hurt.
We joke about these things.
I've skirted all my differences
But now I'm facing up.
I wanted to apologize for
Everything I was. so
I'm sorry so sorry

Did you understand me right?
The people here are good.
They tell me what I should have done
And offer what I could.
I'm good all is good
All's well no complaints.
When I feel regret,
I get down on my knees and pray.
I'm sorry, so sorry

I live a simple life
Unfettered by complex sweets.
You think this isn't me?
Don't be weak.
There I go.
I'm so sorry.

Thank you for being there for me.
Thank you for listening, goodbye.
I can forfeit selfishness
I hope for you that you apply
This happiness
This peacefulness
I'm sorry, so sorry

I live a simple life
Unfettered by complex sweets.
You think this isn't me?
That's so sweet.
I'm so sorry
