The Apologist - Lyrics by REM


Lyrics

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 differences
but now i'm facing up
i wanted to apologize for
everything i was so
i'm 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 feel regret
i get down on my knees and pray
i'm sorry so sorry

i live a simple life
unfettered by complex sweets
you think this isn't me
don't be weak
there i go
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
i'm sorry so sorry

i live a simple life
unfettered by complex sweets
you think this isn't me
that's so sweet
i'm so sorry
