Apologize Lyrics - OneRepublic

Review The Song (12)



[Verse 1]
I'm holdin' on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground.
And I'm hearin' what you say,
But I just can't make a sound.
You tell me that you need me,
Then you go and cut me down...
But wait...
You tell me that you're sorry,
Didn't think I'd turn around...
And say...

[Chorus]
That it's too late to apologize.
It's too late...
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
Yeah!

[Verse 2]
I'd take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it's nothin' new.
I loved you with a fire red,
Now it's turnin' blue...
And you say...
Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you...
But I'm afraid...

[Chorus]
It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
Whoa!

[Interlude]

[Chorus]
It's too late to apologize.
It's too late.
I said it's too late to apologize.
It's too late.

It's too late to apologize. YEAH!
I said it's too late to apologize. YEAH!
I'm holdin' on your rope,
got me ten feet off the ground.

Too late? | Reviewer: Caitlin | 12/16/13

Simply amazing song, especially when it becomes too late for an apology too matter, but there's a part of me saying that maybe, it was not that it was too late, but that the person has gone, and so isn't there to apologise anymore. Imagine if an apology was all you wanted to have or even to give, but then that person passes away or runs away and so you are left of in a state where it is too late to apologise. I remember the amounts of times that I have been apologised to by the same guy, and never once have I ever said that it is too late for his apology because I simply didn't want to have to let go and so I think that an apology can't be too late. Better late than never. But even better sooner than later.

Same as those broken hatred people out there xoxoxo | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/27/12

I broke up with my girlfriend and she asked me out again but I said no and my mate started singing this song !!! One republic u made my exgf a song that should be her ring tone hope this never happens to other people xx

Ending a relationship | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/27/11

I took it as this person has been in a relationship with someone who always says sorry but never corrects what they are sorry for. not putting into the relationship. ??? So this person has to walk away from it and telling the one apologizing it's too late.

Suicide | Reviewer: Sirakou | 2/12/10

After reading tom's comment, I looked at this as if it was suicide. As he said, the first two lines would be obvious.

"Tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down"
Could be the other person finding them and literally cutting them down from the noose.

"I'd take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you"
Falling, of course, into the noose. Take a shot would also probably mean death, whether shooting himself or someone else shooting.

"I loved you with a fire red,
Now it's turning blue..."
If someone's turning blue, it could be linked to choking, such as by hanging.

"Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you..."
Seeing angels or heaven itself, as if he actually was on his way to heaven, again if he was dying.

Now, I know this probably isn't the was the song was meant to be taken, but most songs can have several different meanings, whether intended or not. This meaning was pointed out to me, and I didn't see it this way myself at first, either.

I'd take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it's nothin' new.
yeahhh yeah
I loved you with a fire red,
Now it's turnin' blue...
And you say...
Sorry, like an angel
Heaven let me think was you...
But I'm afraid...

This song... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/7/08

I became a OneRepublic fan before they got popluar. I had loved this song. Then Timbaland ruined some of the saddest, heartfelt lyrics.

Other than that... The original version is a really good song.

yeahh | Reviewer: tom | 3/28/08

Well if you think about it, and i was one day. This song actually seems like it'd be like a suicide song."im holding on your rope got me ten feet off the ground", and its too late to apologize once you killed yourself. But anyways, good song, decent melody and its not bad over all.

its too late | Reviewer: gosia | 2/18/08

this songs is like made for me and my exbf, me n him are going excatly through that what the song is about, I love that song so much even though its my exbf that thinks that way about us...just yesterday he said to me that its too late to apologize...n that is no way for me n him, to be together again...

good song OneRebublic.

woow | Reviewer: Haha | 1/16/08

This is a great song.
It's funny how much it fits what's going on in my life.
I love a guy, who keeps going back and forth between me, and another girl.
He claims he loves me, then will go right back and say he doesn't.
I'm getting fed up with it, and I'm almost at the point of just telling him "Sorry, no. No more!"

Love <3 | Reviewer: shattered_dream_girl | 1/9/08

The first time I ever heard this song, i paused and just stood and stared at my t.v screen, in a trance on how beautiful it was. I had just recently been through a big quarrel with someone I loved, and when 'Apologize' played, i felt like it was talking to me, in a way.

I love this song, and I love OneRepublic!
