The song, according to SoundScan Data, is one of only two songs that have reached 3 million legal downloads in history. A remix of "Apologize" was featured on Timbaland's Shock Value and the band's debut album, Dreaming Out Loud, produced by Greg Wells.

She has him in limbo from all the lies she told. He is expressing the feeling through holding onto her noose 10 feet from the ground getting ready to jump. She begs him not to end it and to forgive her one more time. He has nothing to say. She pleads she needs him and cuts him down from this noose and in that moment he realizes, none of it is worth it and he can't accept her apologies anymore. He reconsiders as the song progresses, only to come back to the same conclusion. The song ends with him holding the noose, 10 feet from the ground, expressing she killed the relationship.
