You're just trying to read
But I'm always standing in your light
You're just trying to sleep
But I always wake you up to apologize

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times

I know how it seems
When I always sing to myself in public
I babble on like a mad man
I know how it seems
When I'm always staring off into nothing
I'm lost in my head again

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times
Is this what it feels like?

I've got my heart
Strung up on clothing line
Through tenement windows in mid-July
I've got my heart
Strung up on clothing line
Through tenement windows in mid-July.

I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times.
Is this what it feels like
With my wings clipped?
I'm awkward and nervous
I'm awkward and nervous

    General CommentI agree with the meaning you guys put forward, but to me it looks like there is a focus on the relationship between the writer and a certain person (friend or partner). He apologizes for his socially awkward behaviour, since the person he talks about suffers from his social incapabilities. Very touching song.
