I know all you want is sleep
But these neuroses go pretty deep
And the words we use
Aren't the nicest ones

I know what a jerk I am
And what a pain in the ass you are

But I don't want to drive you off a cliff
So we before we get to that
I gotta say, "Sorry, I take it back"
I’m sure you don't want to burn the apartment down
So before we get to that
Could you please just take it back?

It looks as though you are cursed
As for being difficult, I'm the worst
But at times you'll find
I'll make it easy on you

I know what a jerk I am
And what a pain in the ass you are

But I don't want to drive you off a cliff
So we before we get to that
I gotta say, "Sorry, I take it back"
I'm sure you don't want to burn the apartment down
So before we get to that
Could you please just take it back?

Listen, I heard what you said
You don't have to repeat it
I'd rather the conversation
Got totally deleted

But I don't want to drive you off a cliff
So before we get to that
I gotta say, "Sorry, I take it back"
I'm sure you don't want to burn the apartment down
So before we get to that
Could you please just take it back?

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a couple that always argue and say things they don't mean. Before they get to the extremes of the argument, in the end, only an apology is needed.
