(Say you're sorry) won't you please
(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)

Circus of silence down at our feet
Paper cut tigers starting to bleed
Hang from your tightrope above the mess
Just say you're sorry, no more, no less
Words you won't use, you don't feel them like I do, I do (don't feel them like I do)
Show will be over soon

It's not the curtain closing causing us to call it a day
I wanna walk away too
But I want you to say you are sorry
I'm not the one who went and made a mistake
I wanna walk away too
But I want you to say you are sorry

(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)

I used to believe that the storybook's true
Now I don't need it at least not with you
So if you see him, the man 'neath the mask
Tell him I'm leaving and not looking back
Words are no use (words are no use)
You don't need them like (you don't need them like) I do
Show will be over soon

It's not the curtain closing causing us to call it a day
I want to walk away too
But I wanna to say you are sorry
I'm not the one who went and made a mistake
I wanna walk away too
But I want you to say you are sorry

I want the one word that you refuse to say to me
You're so good at giving me responsibility
I wash my hands clean and let you watch me as I go
And I'm sorry for you, just so you know

It's not the curtain closing causing us to call it a day
I wanna walk away too
But I want you to say you are sorry
I'm not the one who went and made a mistake
I wanna walk away too
But I want you to say you are sorry

(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)

(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)
(Say you're sorry)

(Say you're sorry)
