This song is by The Last Shadow Puppets and appears on the album The Age of the Understatement (2008).

Original video
You bit your lip and on the tip
Of your tongue was your view
You hadn't dealt with how you felt
In ways that suited you

The paper cuts
From the love letters
You never gave him could not meet
Your new found needs for misbehaving

Why?
Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say?

You said there
Was a nagging lack of smiles
When dancing on your back
Tenderness a-plenty
But that wasn't what you craved

There's holes in hearts
Desire starts to make demands
And, dear boy, you'd be a fool
To make your plans with her

Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?

When it's just one of many bullets
You will bite
While waiting for a ray of light
Waiting for a ray of light
Waiting for a ray of light

The paper cuts from the love letters
You never gave him
Could not meet your new found meat
A misbehaving lie

Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?
Why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you say sorry?
Oh, why would you?

(Why would you?) Why would you say sorry?
(Why would you?) Why would you say sorry?
(Why would you?) Why would you say sorry?
(Why would you?) Why would you say sorry?

(Why would you?)
(Why would you?)
(Why would you?)
(Why would you?)
