"Sorry About That" as written by and Mathew Thomas Skiba Daniel Michael Andriano....
It hasn't been that long
Since we drank to the sunset, until it was gone
And down with it went our pain and fear
As we slowly broke contact

More and more with every beer
And we passed out in each other's arms
Both admitting we'd never felt better
Never felt so warm

But awoke in each other's eyes
Without wearing a stitch of clothing
We were both deeply in disguise
And maybe I just set aside

The fact that you were broken hearted
In my own special selfish way
And if I hadn't set aside
The fact that you were broken hearted

Hell knows where your heart would be today
Maybe with me

It seems like it's been so long
Since we kissed through the darkness
Until it was dawn
Up with it came our pain and fear

That we'd already lost each other
We both knew that the end was near
Maybe I just set aside
The fact that you were broken hearted

In my own special selfish way
And if I hadn't set aside
The fact that you were broken hearted
Hell knows where your heart would be today

Maybe with me Maybe with me
Maybe with me Maybe with me
Maybe with me Maybe with me

    General CommentNo, i think you're right on. But I think he REALLY really has feelings for her, probably used to be best friends, and some asshole guy broke her heart. We'll these two got plastered together, and they did some stuff together (horizontal polka). She didn't like that it happened that way, and nothing ever came of the two. This song is just what the title is, he's sorry he did it. And he feels that if he hadn't, they could be together. My favorite Trio song, peace grease everyone!

    General Commentthe trio came to philly about a year ago (April 6, 2001) and did an acoustic set. They played this song, and i swear, it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. My best friend cried and Matt Skiba hugged her. Then we went and saw them do a full set a few hours later and put on the best show they ever did in philly. yeah, the point is this song is amazing. It feels like summer

    General Commentagain...yet another song i can relate to. cept i wish my ex-best bud was singing this song about me. cuz this happened. we weren't plastered but i was very broken hearted and thought that the comfort my best bud was showing meant he wanted me. and stuff happened and i now know he didn't have feelings for me. he just thought he could take advantage of me. thats why he's my EX best friend.

    General CommentI HATE this song, but I can't help loving it. The reason I hate it so much is because every time I hear it, I burt into tears. It brings back so many memories that I'm trying to discard, but are still so fresh in my mind. It hurts to listen to this song. It reminds me exactly of my relationship with my ex-boyfrind/ex-best friend. The line: And maybe I just set aside the fact that you were broken hearted in my own special selfish way/and if I hadn't set aside the fact that you were broken hearted hell knows where your heart would be today/maybe with me. During our relationship, I had no idea how bad I was hurting him. He gave me no clue. Maybe if I would of paid a little more attention to the signals and the little things he would say, maybe the nights lying awake crying myself to sleep could of been avoided. It hurts so bad to know how much I hurt him. Now I look back on it all and I think of all the crappy things I did or said to him, and I think of how I would feel if someone treated me like that. It would suck. Now, he's been far too hurt by me to be friends again. It tears me up...but I don't blame him really. So I always will be wondering where his heart would be today.

    General CommentThis song brings me to tears, remembering an ex-turned-best-friend who I fooled around with after we had broken up and I had already been through another relationship, thinking it would bring us back to where we were before.
    Needless to say it didn't work like that, and now its even weirder and harder to talk to him, even though he wants to still be friends. Alk3 seems to really be able to bring us all back to our pasts and re-evaluate everything. Good job as usual guys!
