(Buck/Mills/Stipe)



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 diferences
But now I'm facing up
I wanted to apologize for
Everything I was. So

I'm sorry, so sorry
So sorry
So sorry
So sorry
So 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 fell regret,
I get down on my knees and pray

I'm sorry (so sorry), so sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry

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

I'm sorry (so sorry), so sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)
So sorry (so sorry)

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

Thank you for being there for me
Thank you for listening, goodbye
