"My Apology" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
You'll be accepting my apology
For taking things too seriously
Sometimes I'm old enough to keep routines
Sometimes I'm child enough to scream

For everything, I broke in two
You're barely missing me, I'm missing you
And everything you do, I really do
I really do, sure I do

My once photographic memory
For recollection's sake is failing me
I can't remember for the life of me

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong
We move on

Get a job where I tell
All of my accounts of someone else
I'm quick enough to judge that they were wrong
That we knew it all along
Sing a long, long-winded song
I would be content to hum along, hum

If I state that my fingers know where to show
What everyone should have known, I'll let it go
Hopefully you'll forget
Any words that I put in print
My luck, you'll change
Have strength enough to walk away

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong
We move on

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong

Sometimes I can think to recite
Words that I read and rewrite
My pens paint people that I've proven wrong
Read and rewrite it wrong

    General Commentessa música é muito boa, eu esperava um pouco mais da letra que na minha opinião é um tanto viajada mas muito boa também!

    General CommentI really like this song, my favorite on "Something to Write Home About"..."Sing a long long-winded song. I would be content to hum along." I like that line...it doesn't mean anything to me, I just find it "lyrically clever"

    General CommentI think that the songwriter is regretting lyrics he has written in the past that perhaps have painted people in not the brightest tones... Same dilemma that every artist has, their own opinion of their work almost always gets more negative as time progresses and they change.. (ie Rivers Cuomo) More specifically, I think the line "sing a long.....hum along" means that the lyrics aren't really necessary when the music can tell the story.

    General Commenti can definately relate to the first five lines of this song... i make my friends (and teachers, parents, everyone) so mad at me all the time... and when my friends get all uptight about stuff, i get all "serious" and stuff. hehe.

    General CommentI like this song because it is easy to listen to. The beat and style of it isn't much like their style and maybe that is why I like to so damn much.

    General CommentThis song is just...me. "Sometimes I'm old enough to keep routines, sometimes I'm child enough to scream" This is one of my favorite songs ever, I feel like they wrote it about me, I wish they did. I love these guys.
