Never thought I'd say I'm sorry

Never thought I'd be the one to bring you down
Now when I look out my window
But there doesn't seem to be anyone around

And I, I think I'll change my ways
so all your words get noticed
Tomorrow's a brand new day
Tomorrow's a new day

We said we'd take a little time
for both of us to see
and wonder what it'd be like to carry on
ya, I know I got crazy
well I guess thats just me
if I could turn back time before the wrong

and I, I think I'll change my ways
So all your words get noticed
Tomorrow's a brand new day,
Tomorrow's a new day

never thought I'd say I'm sorry
never thought I'd be the one
to bring you down

    General CommentThis song is great, I agree. It is so beautiful. I also see it as being about regret and finally waking up and changing your way of life. It symbolizes all of the changes that the writer went through previously and that it served as a reminder that there is always a chance to start over, no matter how bad things are. It truly is a beautiful song and I have been listening to it a ton lately.

    General CommentThis reminds me of my boy friend. We were together about a year ago, and i dumped him because of all the things he was into-alcohol, drugs, sex like crazy (sep when we were together). It hurt him so much, he looked back on himself to see why i did what i did. He realized he wasn't going to go anywhere in life if he kept this up. So he changed....alot. Now we're together again, and sometimes i ask questions about how he used to be, but he looks like he's about to cry because of how much he regrets doing all that. I had him listen to this song, and he started crying. He said something similar to what CaptainSaturation said, that there's always a chance to start over.

    General Commentregret most definatley there are some things in my past I regret like my additude towards my parents and things I did before getting saved like listening to the wrong music and watching certian things on tv just having this larger than life I'll do what I want additude and all before last year at a youth camp I didn't change but our pastor said you can't do it overnight (change) but every day is a new day to START changing so I woke up the next day and decided I was going to have a better additude and I'm doing better I get along with my parents and my views on whats ok and not have dramatically changed i was never into drugs sex and alcohol but little additude problems can be just as bad!! "never thought I'd say I'm sorry" I love it I never thought I'd change cause I thought my additude wasn't wrong hmm it very much so was!!!

    General CommentI love this song. I sung it for my Show Choir audition last year. This song reminds me of a male friend of mine who I've liked on and off for a few years. I think that it's about changing yourself for someone so you both can be happy.

    My InterpretationI think this song is not so much about regretting someone's own past, but realizing that not all people can be happy being who they are. The writer is one of these people and in order to be happy with one specific person, he/she has to become someone else.
    Or atleast that is how it applies to me. I have been abandonned and hurt so many times by people I care about, I figured it had to be me, I figured that I had to be the problem. I turned myself into an entirely different person and people still didn't like me.
    To me, this song is about desperation for that one person to give a damn about you.
