"I'm Sorry" as written by and Scott/hoppus Raynor....
Don't bide your time cause it is almost over
I know your down and I'll see you around
And I know it hurts but your just getting older
I know you'll win you'll do it once again

Just yesterday it always seemed like such a dream
We're unstoppable, indestructible, nothing happens to our machine
And there's no harm at least nothing we can see
As for you not so true you couldn't choose where his road would lead

What a loss you just lost all your sleep
And we've always thought that this could never happen you see
That it's so hard you gotta get up on your feet
Cause the only way I gotta say is to move on through the week

Don't bide your time cause it is almost over
I know your down and I'll see you around
And I know it hurts but your just getting older
I know you'll win you'll do it once again

I'm sorry (What's happened to you?)

Don't bide your time cause it is almost over
I know your down and I'll see you around
And I know it hurts but your just getting older
I know you'll win you'll do it once again

    My InterpretationI kinda feel as if its about a guy who has to break up with a girl he still loves because he's holding her down and he knows. He tells her he'll "still see her around." He tell her he's sorry because he knows she's hurt even though there's "no harm." meaning its a clean break up. And he tells the girl he knows she'll find someone else, someone better thus she'll win again. =/

    General CommentThis song is about going out with someone and then you break it off and look back on the relationship and think about the times you thought that your relationship was 'unstoppable' and 'indestructable' .. Then towards the end of the song, Tom sings about how it hurts now, but you're getting older and you'll go out with 100 more guys and you'll be in this situation 100 more times.

    General Commentits about getting OLDER
    and growing up!
    and moving on
    and maturing
    and getting wiser
    and leaving things behind.
    maybe it COULD be about a relationship...
    but its not just about that...

    it reminded me of my friend so i sent it to her and she really liked it... i think she got my point. she even sent it to her friend... :) i luv this song

    anyhoo i heard it was about going on tour and success and what not but yeh, part of that doesnt make sense to me but it kind of does...'we always thought this could never happen u see' 'that is so hard' so yeh it could be about how they didnt think anything big would happen and it did and how its hard but they have to just try... but i cant remember if i heard it from a reliable source or not, probably not. so yeh.
    but u know what u can look at it however u want to... a lot of artists like that people do that. this song seems to me like there is no particular message, but he did have a reason for writing it, but its one of those songs where its intended for everyone. im sure no matter what way u look at this song, someone can relate to it in one of those ways... i could look at this one at many different angles...


    anyways like i always say, just ignore me cuz i never make any sense anyways.

    General Commentdude...it's about being hurt now, and the singer...I guess Tom is feelin' you on being hurt, but it's gonna be ok, you'll get through it and grow strong.

    General CommentI think its about someone who saw the window of oppurtunity but never took the chance and now is sorry they missed it and the singer is telling him it will come again.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship cut short because somebody suddenly felt differently about the other. And the other can't get over it and it hurting very badly, when the one that cut it off didn't mean to hurt them and knows that they won't be together again so just go on and move ahead. Life's not over yet, so get moving.
