I come in late with no surprise
you're standing at the door with those angry eyes
you stayed up late just to start this fight
but my ears are getting tired I think I'll call it
a night

You keep on talking but I'm not listening
I'll be the first to say I'm sorry just to put this to end
You keep on talking but I'm not listening
I'll be the first to say I'm sorry just to put this to end

I know that it's strange that straight to this very day
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you
you know it isn't real don't make it a big deal
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you

You're always chiming in with your this and that
you're crying at my door like a pussy cat
I thought that it was over and that was that
but you insist to persist me
irrational enemy

You keep on talking but I'm not listening
I'll be the first to say I'm sorry just to put this to end
You keep on talking but I'm not listening
I'll be the first to say I'm sorry just to put this to end

I know that it's strange that straight to this very day
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you
you know it isn't real don't make it a big deal
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you

appreciate, validate, sleeping with the enemy
honest honest honest this is the way we play (X2)

appreciate, validate, sleeping with the enemy (2x)


I know that it's strange that straight to this very day
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you
you know it isn't real don't make it a big deal
I'll be the only one to say that I'm sorry without you (2x)

    General Commentthis song makes me angry because he is being such a jerk. i mean his girl is just angry that he is staying out so late without hearing from him then he just blows her off and comes in and expects to just get away with it and goes to bed because i dont know he just doesnt feel like listening to something he probably deserves. maybe this song can relate to some guys but it really insults alot of girls. but for some reason i still like this song, its just maddening

    General Commenti think he might be be cheating and he just does'nt listen to her and thats why hes called the enemy because he doesn't listen and just tunes her out and come in late

    General CommentI feel like this song is about a couple that is falling apart. She keeps picking fights with him, maybe out of jealousy because he stays out late and she thinks he's cheating. He's not, and she knows he isn't in her heart, but she's jealous to the point of being irrational about it. He's tired of these games and instead of fighting he chooses to say sorry and tune her out to save the relationship, but it's becoming unbearable.

    General CommentXhayleyX - This song is about girls like you. It doesn't "really insults alot [sic] of girls" as you say; realize not all girls are like you. Also, this song can not possibly "relate to some guys". Songs can't relate to people, they're songs.
