It Takes Two - Katy Perry



The Experience: It takes two to break up... and to make up.  I had to grow up, I have to admit my faults. Let me be the first baby to say, "I'm sorry". But will you do the same? 
Lyric Video: 


The Meaning of It Takes Two has Katy first trying to I wanna blame you. She gets past that, admitting her faults (I can only blame myself. Let me be the first to say, "I'm sorry") and confessing I had to grow up. Yet she's waiting for her other half to admit the same. She's also wise enough to know that if he doesn't, it's not her fault. I can only take responsibility for me. Not all break-ups are your fault. When the other person won't grow up, you just have to walk away: sometimes I can only save myself.

Ask Yourself: Am I the first to say, "I'm sorry"


LYRICS:
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

Oh, I can only take responsability 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 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, I can see

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 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

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

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"
