“Emily, I’m Sorry” was released within the teaser for boygenius’ new debut album, the record on March 31. The song is led by Phoebe Bridgers and features backing vocals by Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus. The first demo that was sent out for the song was a week after the release of Punisher.

The song is most likely about Emily Bannon, a voiceover actor and vocal artist who was rumored to be involved in a polyamorous relationship with both Phoebe and producer Chris Nelson in 2018, and then in a monogamous relationship with Phoebe after they and Chris split up in 2019. She also appears in the “Kyoto” music video.

[Verse 1: Bridgers]
She’s asleep in the backseat
Looking peaceful enough to me
But she’s wakin’ up inside a dream
Full of screeching tires and fire
We’re comin’ back from where no one lives
Pretty much just veterans
When I pointed out where the North Star is
She called me a fuckin’ liar

[Chorus: Bridgers, Dacus & Baker, Bridgers & Dacus, All]
Emily, I’m sorry, I just (Emily, I)
Make it up as I go along
Yet, I can feel myself becoming (I can feel)
Someone only you could want

[Verse 2: Bridgers]
Headed straight for the concrete
In a nightmare, screaming
Now I’m wide awake, spiraling
And you don’t wanna talk
Just take me back to Montréal
I’ll get a real job, you’ll go back to school
We can burn out in the freezing cold
And just get lost

[Chorus: Bridgers, Dacus & Baker, Bridgers & Dacus, All]
Emily, I’m sorry, baby (Emily, I)
You know how I get when I’m wrong (You know how I get)
And I can feel myself becoming (I can feel)
Somebody I’m not, I’m not, so
Emily, forgive me, can we (Emily, I)
Make it up as we go along?
I’m twenty-seven and I don’t know who I am (Don’t know who I am)
But I know what I want

[Outro: Bridgers]
Emily, I’m sorry
Emily, I’m sorry
I’m sorry
