"Tired Of Being Sorry" as written by Scott Thomas, Geraldine Dominique Delacoux and Nadia Zighem....
I don't know why
You want to follow me tonight
When the rest of the world
With whom I've crossed and I've quarreled

Let's me down so
For a thousand reasons that I know
To share forever the unrest
With all the demons I possess
Beneath the silver moon

Maybe you were right
But baby I was lonely
I don't want to fight
I'm tired of being sorry

Chandler and Van Nuys
With all the vampires and their brides
We're all bloodless and blind
And longing for a life
Beyond the silver moon

Maybe you were right
But baby I was lonely
I don't want to fight
I'm tired of being sorry

I'm standing in the street
Crying out for you
No one sees me
But the silver moon

So far away â?? so outer space
I've trashed myself â?? I've lost my way
I've got to get to you
I've got to get to you

Maybe you were right
But baby I was lonely
I don't want to fight
I'm tired of being sorry

I'm standing in the street
Crying out for you
No one sees me
But the silver moon

    General Commentthis is obviously a song about a guy who is in love with a girl. He did something wrong cos he's tired of being sorry. Maybe he cheated (he says that he was lonely). At the end of the song it seems like he is trying to get her back but he is alone with the moon. I am confused with this because at the beginning of the song it says "I don’t know why
    You want to follow me tonight", so it seems that he already has her. Or maybe he is talking to two girls?

    General Commenti think he has done something wrong like drugs ("I’ve trashed myself ") and gotten into fights about it. and things like that are ussually done by night ("beneath the silver moon")
    but why did he pick chandler (in arizona) and van nuy (in california)? are those areas filled with druggies? why those particular places?
    he has hurt this girl by doing these unlawfull activities, and she is bugging him about it (that is why she is following him in the begining of the song).
    the vampires and thier brides refers to all the adicts (does brides refer to prostitues?) who regret doing wat they are, and trying to get a life "beyond the silvwer moon"

    General CommentI agree with the previous writer, however, I don't think he is in love with anyone but himself. The vampires are definitly the adicts. There is someone, a woman perhaps, who does love him, although it could be a close friend. He wants to kick the habbit, "I'm tired of being sorry" is a reference to coming down from his highs. Even tho he knows he is loved, he cannot love back, not until he has conquered his own personal demons. He "crys out" for someone, but they can't hear him because he is communicating in a way only he can understand.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who has lost his way in life, has gotten into trouble with drugs and has messed up his life in general, he is lonely now, walking alone at nights but there is a girl, who, he knows has always been there for him and maybe knows she still is there, that is why he says ''I don’t know why
    You want to follow me tonight'' maybe he wonders why is she still there after what he has done. So now he goes back to her to ask for her forgiveness, he knows she is the only one he needs and who can help him.

    General Commentmy theory is that this is a horror romance novel

    the singer is a vampire who wants to fly away with a girl. but the girl did not want to go, so he took her sister. the vampire comes back from flying with the girl's sister and realizes that the girl really did want to go, but she was too stupid to say something, so the vampire was all like "oh...okay...sorry" and the girl would not forgive him, caz she hates her sister, but her sister likes lemon skittles, but that has nothing to do with anything. so then, the vampire was all like "you know what, f you!! i apologized. either come with me to fly or stay and be a bitch!!" and the girl still hasnt made up her mind, caz the singer never gave us an answer.

    jking!! i think this song is about aliens.

    General CommentOkie Dokie, I love this song. Now as far as it's meaning, hmm, well, here's my opinion.

    " I don’t know why
    You want to follow me tonight"

    I think the writer of the song went astray and was cheating on his girlfriend and she tailed him.


    "When the rest of the world
    With whom I’ve crossed and I’ve quarreled
    Let’s me down so
    For a thousand reasons that I know
    To share forever the unrest
    With all the demons I possess
    Beneath the silver moon"

    It sounds like he's at odds with many people in his life, and he realizes it's his fault. I don't see the 'silver moon' as being drugs - like some posters before mentioned, but rather that he is speaking in literal terms, as in the moon itself. Did you ever stand outside at night and just look up at the sky and feel so small and insignificant? I think that's what he's feeling.

    "Maybe you were right
    But baby I was lonely
    I don’t want to fight
    I’m tired of being sorry"

    Saying he was lonely - it goes back to my comment about cheating. . .maybe he was with a hooker?

    "Chandler and Van Nuys
    With all the vampires and their brides
    We’re all bloodless and blind
    And longing for a life
    Beyond the silver moon"

    So it sounds like he's in the San Fernando Valley in California...I know Van Nuys is a town, but think theres also a Van Nuys Blvd....as well as Chandler Blvd...maybe they intersect....if so, it's possible that this is where she followed him to or from and he's referring to the 'vampires and their brides' in reference to pimps and prostitutes. Then the 'bloodless and blind' would be the lack of a real life that those people would have. . .they work the night, like a vampire would.

    "Maybe you were right
    But baby I was lonely
    I don’t want to fight
    I’m tired of being sorry
    I’m standing in the street
    Crying out for you
    No one sees me
    But the silver moon"

    Sounds like she (his girlfriend) gave him hell, and drove off and he was literally calling out trying to get her to come back.

    "So far away – so outer space
    I’ve trashed myself – I’ve lost my way
    I’ve got to get to you"

    I think he's totally disgusted with himself and finally waking up and realizing that he needs her.

    Whatever the intended meaning, it has a great beat. I wish I lived in California, I know they perform out there and would love to see them, but it's way too far to travel there from the east coast just for a couple of hours. They've written some really cool songs, I hope they find someone to promote them into a nationwide tour.
