A Billion Sorrys
Matt Cornett Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Before you go and make that face you make when you're mad at me
So mad at me
Let me say it's not my place going through your voicemail
And your history

And if this were a TV show you know I'd have to go and plead insanity
'Cause the lyin' and spyin' and pryin' isn't really my personality
I'm an idiot for taking your phone

This is my fault, my bad
If I said a million sorrys
How about a billion sorrys?
Ooh
You shine just like the stars
And I'm not even a night light
'Cause what I did wasn't so bright
I'm really sorry

Girl
Girl
You know I was scared that this would end
That's why I checked your DMs
This has been so hard for me, keeping this secret from you and our friends
Ugh, but given the chance, I would definitely do it again
No, wait that's not right
I mean that I wouldn't do it again
No

This is my fault, my bad
If I said a million sorrys
How about a billion sorrys?
Ooh
Can't we just start again?
Once upon a time I'm sorry
Nothing else to rhyme with sorry
(I'm really sorry)

Ooh
Not so great at sayin' sorry




Hope you know I'm really sorry
Ooh

Before you go and make that face you make when you're mad at me So mad at me Let me say it's not my place going through your voicemail And your history
I know you're angry at me, but let me explain that I had no right to invade your privacy by going through your voicemail and browsing your history.


And if this were a TV show you know I'd have to go and plead insanity 'Cause the lyin' and spyin' and pryin' isn't really my personality I'm an idiot for taking your phone
I realize that my behavior was unacceptable and I have no excuse. In a TV show, my actions would be considered insane and not a reflection of my true character. I'm sorry for taking your phone.


This is my fault, my bad If I said a million sorrys How about a billion sorrys? Ooh You shine just like the stars And I'm not even a night light 'Cause what I did wasn't so bright I'm really sorry
I take full responsibility for my actions and I'm truly sorry. Saying sorry a million times isn't enough, but I'm willing to say sorry a billion times if that's what it takes. You are amazing and I feel insignificant compared to you because what I did was not smart or considerate.


Girl Girl You know I was scared that this would end That's why I checked your DMs This has been so hard for me, keeping this secret from you and our friends Ugh, but given the chance, I would definitely do it again No, wait that's not right I mean that I wouldn't do it again No
I was afraid that our relationship was in jeopardy, and that's why I sought out information by checking your DMs. It's been difficult for me to keep this secret from you and our friends. However, if given the chance, I would not repeat my mistake. I'm sorry for what I did.


Can't we just start again? Once upon a time I'm sorry Nothing else to rhyme with sorry (I'm really sorry) Ooh Not so great at sayin' sorry Hope you know I'm really sorry Ooh
I hope we can move past this and start fresh. I'm sorry for what I did and there's nothing else I can say to make up for it. I'm not very good at apologizing, but I want you to know that I'm sincerely sorry.

Lyrics

Before you go and make that face when your mad at me
So mad at me
Let's just say it's not my place going through your voice mail
And your history
If this was a tv show you know id have to go and plead insanity
Cause the lying and spying and prying
Isn't really my personality
I'm an idiot for taking your phone!
This is my fault my bad
If I said a million sorrys how about a billion sorrys
OoooooOooooOOOOO!
you shine just like the stars
and I'm not even a nightlight I
Cause what I did wasn't so bright
I'm really sorry
(Starts talking regular)
Girl, (clears throat) girl.
You know I'm scared this would end
That's why I checked your dms
This has been so hard for me
To keep this a secret from you and our friends
But given the chance.
I would definitely do it again!
No wait that's not right.
I mean I wouldn't do it again.
(Back to singing)
Noooooooooo.
This I my fault my bad.
If I said a million sorry
How about a billion sorry
Ooooooooooh.
Can we just start again
Once upon a a time i m sorry
Nothing else to rhyme with sorry
Ooooooooh
Not so great at saying sorry
Hope you know I'm really sorry.
