Lyrics
Sorry for the way
I treated you today
I was out of my head
I'll admit it

Sorry for the hard time
I gave to you today
I had a bug up my a__
I'll admit it

Sorry for my attitude
I know there's no excuse
I was just fed up
And that's all

Can't you see that you're the only one
that can absorb what I've got to dish out
Can't you see that you're the only one
I can trust not to just turn and walk out
Can't you see how much I need you
to swallow your pride and just let me rave on
Can't you see I don't mean to be vicious
it just comes right out on it's own

Sorry for the way
I let loose today
I lost my head
I'll admit it

Sorry for the headache
I gave you today
I had a lot on my mind
You know how it is

Sorry for that hell
I put you through today
I just had to pull
Myself out of it

Can't you see that you're the only one
I can trust not to just turn and walk out
Can't you see that you're the only one
that can absorb what I've got to dish out
Can't you see how much I need you
to swallow your pride and just let me rave on
Can't you see I don't mean to be ruthless
it just comes right out on it's own

Sorry for the way
I treated you today
I was out of my head
I'll admit it

Sorry for the hard time
I gave to you today
I had a bug up my a__
I'll admit it

Sorry for my attitude
I know there's no excuse
I was just fed up
And that's all

Can't you see that you're the only one
that can absorb what I've got to dish out
Can't you see that you're the only one
I can trust not to just turn and walk out
Can't you see how much I need you
to swallow your pride and just let me rave on
Can't you see I don't mean to be vicious
it just comes right out on it's own
