These wars of words are pointless - nothing gets accomplished, no.
To see you bent and broken,
You'd think I'd like it but I don't,
It disgusts me that I could be so petty and weak.

Yeah, you're sorry.
Everyone's always so sorry.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I thought I heard you say,
"To lose is not okay, win is the only way"?
Guess what I did with my day?
Well, I failed.

Despite my reservations, I think it's time that we met.
And all these complications, they make me something I'm not.

You're kitten as a cat.
I know where it's at,
This is where it's at.
Yeah, this is where it's at,

And yeah, you're sorry.
Everyone's always so sorry.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I thought I saw you stray but I love you anyway.
And I'd like us to be forever.
That's what I tried to say
But it gets stuck in my throat and words are missing.

Stuck in my throat,
Now that I know it could only be you,
I try to speak out but the words are missing.
Words are missing.

    General CommentI can't quite put my finger on the meaning of this song. I'm thinking that maybe he has a love/hate relationship with a girl. Or possibly, he's just had an argument with his girlfriend (1st verse), they separate for a while and then he realises how much he wants to be with her (Stuck in my throat, Now that I know it could only be you,) Also, he wants to tell her how he feels but when he does the words get stuck in his throat

    General CommentI think this is about someone who really loves the other person but they've been cheated on. They want to say that they still love them but they just can't bring themself to say it because they've been hurt so much. I think the first verse is the admittance of the unfaithful lover- "It disgusts me that I could be so petty and weak" They are sorry and the other person wants to accept that, yet there's this part of them that just can't say those words of forgiveness. (Now that I know it could only be you, I try to speak out but the words are missing)

    General CommentI think he's broken up with somebody & she's said sorry "yeah you're sorry, everybody's always so sorry" & he's sick of hearing saying sorry to him about them breaking up.
    "I thought I saw you stray but I love you anyway." - maybe thought s/he was having an affair or something & he confronted them, but he still loves this person, but the telling them they love them is stuck in his throat to tell her that so she leaves him when he still loves her.

    General Commentmr cliche D i think ur right. but i think the "It disgusts me that I could be so petty and weak." part is him reflecting on how he became so angry at HER for cheating (or maybe just sumthing else that upset him), as he "bent" and "broke" her in a rage or sumthing. He's getting confused with himself, maybe he thinks hes over reacting -
    "And all these complications, they make me something I'm not."
    its because of this scenario that he wants to love her again but cannot articulate his love for her, as it still hurts. Similar lines to 'wrong and sorry' about communication between two people. this band is really good lol.
