The Apologist Lyrics

by REM

They call me the apologist
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 facin' up
I wanted to apologize for
Everything I was, so

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