{Verse No. 1}


Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of livin' like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me


In the opening verse, the singer conveys a sense of personal inadequacy, feeling like he never measured up as a wise or prosperous person. He likens himself to a "blind man" who lacks emotional depth and understanding. The repetition of the phrase "And this is how you remind me" suggests that the memories of the failed relationship serve as a constant reminder of his flaws and failures


{Chorus}


It's not like you to say sorry
I was waitin' on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin'
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we havin' fun yet?"


The chorus highlights the central theme of the song, which is the inability of the other person to apologize or take responsibility for their actions. The protagonist expected a different outcome, but instead, he feels like he's been given a heart that's destined to be broken repeatedly. The line "These five words in my head, scream, 'Are we havin' fun yet?'" conveys his frustration and the painful realization that the relationship is anything but enjoyable.


{Verse No. 2}


It's not like you didn't know that
I said, "I love you," and I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
'Cause livin' with me must have damn near killed you


Scream, "Are we havin' fun yet?" In the second verse, the singer acknowledges his love for the other person, emphasizing that despite their problems, he still cares deeply for them. However, he also recognizes that his actions or behavior in the past must have been incredibly hurtful to his partner, almost to the point of causing their emotional death. This verse adds a layer of complexity to the song, showing the internal struggle of love and remorse.


{Chorus}


It's not like you to say sorry
I was waitin' on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breakin'
And I've been wrong, I've been down
Been to the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream, "Are we havin' fun yet?
