Seeing your soul on that butterfly day,
I saw myself with other eyes
all those beautiful shades of grey
grew into colorful lies
the mirror man grew and said things that he knew-
he’d discovered them scant minutes before
but when the lights went out and he said goodnight,
I knew I’d cheated you

I’m so sorry that you misunderstood me
I’m so sorry that it didn’t connect
I’m so sorry that you thought I was someone else
I just didn’t mean it quite that way
that way just yet

I haven’t seen your face for ages now,
I’d forgotten how you made me feel
it was a real tight fit,but my fuses re-lit
and now you’re stuck on my mind for real
a summertime hero is a wintertime clown
and knowledge is the odd man out
you’ve gotta hang on to the trip you’re on
I still wish I was a part of yours

I’m so sorry...........etc

beautiful sister (x4)

I’m so sorry that you misunderstood me
I’m so sorry that it didn’t connect
I’m so sorry that you thought I was someone else
I just didn’t mean it quite that way,
guess I had a crush on myself that day

    General CommentI think this song is about a very short romance with someone you don't really have a crush on, but after it happened you feel very guilty and you try to explain to yourself and that person why it happened. It's always a struggle to do such and this song is about that struggle. Luckily the lightness of the tune itselfs reveals that short romantic flings aren't really something you should worry about and should enjoy anyway.
