Lately I can't tell my friends from my enemies
When it use to seem so clear
I tried rebellion once and look where it's gotten me
Banging apologies against your deaf ears

And she said, "Sing me a sweet song tonight,
Sing me a new song tonight"

We used to lie side by side
I could cover myself in you
We used to lie, but I'm no longer so wide-eyed and full

Lately, I can't tell where all this is taking me
I'm spilling over and spitting spiteful words
There was a time once when I understood my cruelty,
But now I'm not so sure


(Chorus 2x)

    General Commentit's about being in a dead end relationship. he was in love and wanted to keep trying, and he was the only one trying, and he was so tired of trying that he cheated. she found out and they're over, and he regrets it, he regrets it all
