Emily I'm Sorry

Album: The Record (2023)

  • She's asleep in the backseat
    Looking peaceful enough to me
    But she's waking up inside a dream
    Full of screeching tires and fire
    We're coming back from where no one lives
    Pretty much just veterans
    When I pointed out where the north star is
    She called me a fucking liar

    Emily, I'm sorry I just
    Make it up as I go along
    And I can feel myself becoming
    Someone only you could want

    Headed straight for the concrete
    In a nightmare screaming
    Now I'm wide awake, spiraling
    And you don't want to talk
    Just take me back to Montreal
    I'll get a real job, you'll go back to school
    We can burn out in the freezing cold
    And just get lost

    Emily, I'm sorry, baby
    You know how I get when I'm wrong
    And I can feel myself becoming
    Somebody I'm not, I'm not so-

    Emily, forgive me, can we
    Make it up as we go along?
    I'm twenty seven and I don't who I am
    But I know what I want

    Emily, I'm sorry
    Emily, I'm sorry
    I'm sorry Writer/s: Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, Phoebe Bridgers
