I'm sorry about your birthday
I never thought they'd spell your name with a 'k'
And then two 'y's
I guess it wasn't wise of me
To order cake by phone
Another sin to be atoned

I'm sorry about the weekend
Your friends all said they'd be along by 8
I said that's great
We'll wait until you get there
We won't start without you
But there's no doubt about it, that

I let you down again
We know it's true, it's what I do, and
I made you frown again
But here's a thing I bet you never knew

If everything was easy, I'd be you
caught in the comfort of a world so neatly planned
colors outside the lines are more than you can stand
I'm sorry 'bout your life
The lovely movie with the perfect end
It's all pretend
I thought that I might bend your will
And overcome your doubt
The only thing I'm right about is that

I won't let you down again
My best will never pass your test
I won't make you frown again
Be happy since
I found the simple truth:
If loving you was easy, I'd be you
