All this time I was wasting,
Hoping you would come around
I've been givin' out chances every time
And all you do is let me down
And it's taken me this long baby
But I figured you out
And you think it would be fine again
But not this time around

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby,
Like I did before
You're not sorry.
Oh no, no, no.

Looking so innocent,
I might believe you if I didn't know
Could've loved you all my life
If you hadn't left me waitin' in the cold
And you got to share your secrets
And I'm tired of being last to know
And now you're asking me to listen
Cause it's worked each time before

But you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby,
Like I did before
You're not sorry.
No, no, Oh.
You're not sorry.
No, no, Oh.

You had me crawling for you honey
And it never would have gone away, no
You used to shine so bright,
But I watched all of it fade

So you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
There's nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby,
Like I did before
You're not sorry.
No, no, Oh.
You're not sorry.
No, no. Oh.

    I think this is one of my favorite taylor swift songs. Its not all fairy tale -ish. Its real a lot of people can relate to this, including myself. When I here this I think of my current situation with my ex, and how i give him chance after chance but he keeps blowing them. It makes me realize he's never going to change that Im just going to move on because he's not sorry nor will he ever be. Jist like the guy taylor sings about. I agree with all of your ideas.

    I think i agree with ecochick about this song.. only cause to me i am dealing with something similar and to me this song just has a different meaning. Its hard to explain but I really do not think the guy in this particular song is cheating. But I guess the only person who really knows is Taylor.

    To me this song has a different kind of meaning because it reminds me of something personal that I'm going through. She's in love with this guy who keeps telling her he likes her and things are going to happen between them, but then he changes his mind and she's heartbroken. This keeps happening. Finally she can't take it anymore and she's telling him to stay away from her because she has her limits.

    yea, this song is beautiful and so true...i agree with u, blob4ever. Guys always wanna mess with love and cheating. i can't understand why. They always give promise that they never do. They faulting their gf when she did some small mistake. but when he did something really wrong, hell guess what, they just make innocence looks, apologize and get forgave easily. But then, he did it again and again. Shit!, we do have our limits and your apologize means nothing. so, get lost, jerks.

    All the apologizies that you ever gave me were worthless because youo never changed your ways. You cheated on me, and you stopped talking to me untill it was convienient for you. Colt, what makes you think after 4 months of silence form you that I would beleive you are sorry, and at the same time your "best friend" tells me that you two have actually been dating for 6 months...convient that you are don't change and you are always lying. You are so vein.
