Timbaland - Apologize - Lyrics Meaning

Apologize by Timbaland was released in 2007 and reached number 2 in the US charts and number 3 in the UK charts.

The lyrics in this song talk about the pain of breaking up with someone and how you must move on, no matter how much it hurts.

The song starts saying how he is holding on to the person that he loves and he is being told by this person that they love him but that they must let him go. He can't speak because of being so upset.

He is telling them that it is to late to apologise.

He would go back to this person like a shot but now knows he cannot do this, the love he feels is now beginning to fade even though it is so hard.

The lyrics go on to talk about how he feels dismayed that he felt God had made him think that this person was the one he had been waiting for, but is was not to be.
