Do you have any idea who I am?
And while I smoke this cigarette my head is hidden in my hand
Do you have any idea who you are, too?
Did I not make myself clear?
I pushed you away
And though I try to write my life on this page, you are still here
Perhaps I never understood your initial intention

I'm so, I'm so sorry
Did I catch you on a bad day?
I'm so, I'm so sorry
There is something I must say
Hello, I need you

Did I speak out of turn,
Somehow upset you?
Did I not show my concern with how you felt when I moved on without you?
Did you believe that I'd forget the things that sometimes made me smile?

I'm so, I'm so sorry
Did I catch you on a bad day?
And I'm so, I'm so sorry
There is something I must say
Hello, I need you
Hello, I need you

You know I'm trying to take a step into my future
And though I want to hold your hand and make you mine again,
You have to keep your distance from me
Do you have any idea how much this hurts?

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a woman who has broken up with someone that she wants to keep in her life as just a friend. But when she is around him it is hard for her not to want him back.

    General CommentFirst of all i looove this song. I listened to it a few times before i realized it sounds like it's about her being abused by someone. When people are abused a lot of times they feel like they did something to anger the person that's where i think the whole "i'm sorry" part comes. and maybe she caught the abuser on a bad day and said something to them that made them mad and they abused her. and she still loves the person but she has to do what's best for her health.
