Lyrics

[Verse 1]:
Is Mercury in retrograde,
Or is that the excuse that I've always made.
'Cause I wanna blame you,
But I can only blame myself.
Yeah, it's easy to throw you under the bus,
I'll call you crazy, while I'm filling my cup.
I say these things to hurt you,
But I only hurt myself.

[Chorus]:
Oh, I can only take responsibility for me.
It takes two, two sides to every story.
Not just you.
I can't keep ignoring.
I admit half of it,
I'm not that innocent, oh yeah.
It takes two, two sides to every story,
Not just me.
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry".
("I'm sorry".)

[Verse 2]:
I face my demons, yeah, I paid my dues,
I had to grow up, I wish you could too.
I wanted to save you, but I can only save myself.
Oh, I can only be the changing one to see,
Yeah, to see.

[Chorus]:
It takes two, two sides to every story.
Not just you.
I can't keep ignoring.
I admit half of it,
I'm not that innocent, yeah, oh.
It takes two, two sides to every story,
Not just me.
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry".
("I'm sorry".)

[Bridge]:
I point my finger but it does me no good.
I look in the mirror and it tells me truth, yeah.
Why all these lessons always learned the hard way.
Is it too late to change?

[Chorus]:
Oh, it takes two (it takes two),
Two sides to every story.
Not just you (not you).
I can't keep ignoring.
I admit half of it,
I'm not that innocent, oh.
It takes two (it takes two),
Two sides to every story,
Not just me (not me).
You can't keep ignoring
But let me be first baby to say "I'm sorry".
("I'm sorry, I'm sorry".)
