You bit your lip
And on the tip of your tongue was your view
He hadn't dealt with how you felt
In ways that suited you

Got paper cuts
From the love letters you never gave him
Could not meet
Your new found needs for misbehaving

Why, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say?

You said there was a nagging lack of smiles
When dancing on your back
Tenderness aplenty but that wasn't what you craved

There's holes in hearts
Desire starts to make demands
And dear boy, you'd be a fool
To make your plans with her

Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?

When it's just one of many bullets you will bite
While waiting for a ray of light
Waiting for a ray of light
Waiting for a ray of light

Got paper cuts
From the love letters you never gave him
Could not meet
Your new found needs for misbehaving

Why, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?

Why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Why would you?
Why would you say sorry?

Why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Why would you?
Why would you say sorry?

Why would you?
Why would you?
Why would you?
Why would you?
