Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

[CHORUS]
It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

It's not like you didn't know that
I said I love you and I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

And this is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

[CHORUS]
It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream,"Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealin'

And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
This is how you remind me of what I really am
This is how you remind me of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I'm always waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we having fun yet?"
Yeah, Yeah
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah
Are we having fun yet? Yeah, yeah
Are we having fun yet? Yeah, yeah

    This song is really about, and i can prove it, how chad used to be a former alcoholic because if you listen in the chorus it says "i've been down to the bottom of every bottle" which means that he's drunk that much and as if he's giving advice saying he knows what it feels like, the ghost that haunts him is like his past reminding him. So at the of the video he pushes her away as if to say he's not having any links with his past and he's never going back. So now just to be a knob your all wrong suckers listen the next time.!

    To me this song means that we musnt put our own needs before the ones we love especially gfs and bfs becuase otherwise it can make us seem too good and we must neither be too good or bad otherwise we are just ruining our relationships with those people and breaking our own hearts in the process and that we musnt give in to sadness loneliness or despair otherwise it may destroy who we truly are and make us husks of the people we used to be.
