(Verse 1)
Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealin'
Tired of livin' like a blind man
I'm sick inside without a sense of feelin'
And this is how you remind me

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

It's not like you, to say sorry
I was waitin' on a different story
This time I was mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin'
I've been wrong, I've been down
Been to 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

(Verse 2)
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 been 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

It's not like you, to say sorry
I was waitin' on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin'
I've been wrong, I've been down
Been to 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 was waitin' on a different story
This time I was mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin'
I've been wrong, I've been down
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head scream
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah, Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah, Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah, Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah, Yeah... No, no

    @ cowgirlb: No...
    It is about this guy who just got dumped by his girl and he knows why because he had done bad things to her (This time I was mistaken For handing you a heart worth breakin') And he tries different life styles to move on with his life (wise, poor, bind etc.) But he can't find himself back the way he was before, so the girl reminds him who he really is.
