"Tired Of Being Sorry" as written by Enrique M Iglesias and Scott Thomas....
I don't know why
You want to follow me tonight
When in 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

Eighth and Ocean Drive
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
So outer space
I've trashed myself
I've lost my way
I've got to get to you, 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

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 Commenti think the guy was tired of fighthing all the time with the girlfriend...so he went out one night and cheated on her of course with a vampire! so now he can't go back toi his girlfriend cause he's a vampire..."i dont know why you want to follow me tonight" means tha the girlfriend want to join him to his place now but he wont..so thats why he disapears at the end..

    he tired od being sorry cause he did a mistake and now has to pay for the rest of his life...

    Enrique his so freaking gorgeous...i just love him!!!!!! i saw him first show on Montreal WOW!!!!!!

    General CommentThis song is about a man going out somewhere and his gf is following him bc he's cheated on her before. and he's saying she was right in suspecting him of cheating but that he was lonely so thats why he did it. It also hints that he's ready to leave her bc he wants to do other things and he's sick of fighting with her about it. but at the same time he still wants her. he just wants an open relationship, i guess

    My InterpretationThis song could be about cheating, I see that, but.... this is how I see it.


    Whenever I hear this song, I think of the singer (I don't mean to specifically attach this meaning to Enrique's personal life) as someone who has gotten themselves surrounded by the lifeless, "fake" people of 'Hollywood' so to speak. He has this girl, (or had her) who warned him he would lose himself in the life of fame, but he thought he needed it. So now he is always sorry for the life he leads.

    I don't know why
    You wanna follow me tonight
    When the rest of the world
    With whom I've crossed and I've quarreled

    Lets me down so
    A thousand reasons that I know
    To share forever the unrest
    With all the demons I possess
    Beneath the silver moon

    Why do you still follow me (and love me) when you should hate me? The things I have done, the demons with in me, make me unworthy of you.


    Maybe you were right (I've lost myself to this life)
    But baby I was lonely (I thought I needed the fame)
    I don't wanna fight
    I'm tired of being sorry (That I didn't listen to you)


    Eight and Ocean Drive (Is there maybe a club at the corner of Eight and Ocean? That would represent the life of fame)
    With all the vampires and their brides (All of the fake, lifeless people of "Hollywood" and such)
    Were (or We're) all bloodless and blind
    And longing for a life (A better, real life)
    Beyond the silver moon (Vampires traditionally can only come out at night. They are trapped in darkness. The people the singer is speaking about are trapped in their lonely, lifeless world, and can't escape from it)




    I'm still in the street, yeah (He's still in this life)
    Crying out for you (Crying out for the girl he lost or is losing)
    No one sees me
    But the silver moon (I think this could be literal, standing under the moon and contemplating the things you have lost and what you have become / Or the silver moon could embody the life he lives and is now sorry for, as the 'silver moon' represents being trapped in the life in the second verse. He is still trapped under his 'silver moon.'



    So far away
    So outer space (From the life he once had, or wants to lead)
    I've trashed myself
    I've lost my way (Look what I've done to myself in this life, look what I've become)
    I've got to get to you, got to get to you (I've got to get back to you - back to what's right and real)
