"Sorry" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
I threw away my phone
I thought that you should know
I'd throw away my home
If I had somewhere to go
Anything to stop
The circle in my brain
Anything is better than you
Making me feel lame

28 days to kick the habit
28 days to let you go
28 days and I'll be on my own

All my life I've been sorry for something
Something gets me nothing and nothings such a waste
All this time I've been sayin I'm sorry
But why should I be sorry for all of your mistakes

Why should I be sorry
I've had enough of you
Please forget my name
I'm runnin around on empty
Still tryin to get away
Anything to kill
The consciousness of you
Anything to end myself
Before the thought of you

28 days to kick the habit
28 days to let you go
28 days and I'll be on my own

All my life I've been sorry for something
Something gets me nothing and nothings such a waste
All this time I've been sayin I'm sorry
But why should I be sorry for all of your mistakes

Now you'll know what it feels like to bite your tongue
Now you'll know what it feels like to be the one
Who walks around with nothin, just stuck
I've been there, and I've done it
And now you'll know what it feels like
To always be afraid
Of everything you wanted to say
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now

All my life I've been sorry for something
Something gets me nothing and nothings such a waste
All this time I've been sayin I'm sorry
But why should I be sorry for all of your mistakes

All my life I've been sorry for something
Something gets me nothing and nothings such a waste
All this time I've been sayin I'm sorry
But why should I be sorry for all of your mistakes

Who's sorry now?

    General CommentIt's probably a B-side or something then. I actually like this song a lot. Oh, and StrokesLuVeR... I hope your some kind of satirist because otherwise you are pathetic and way too moronic and illiterate to be a Strokes fan.

    Anyways, the song is about a break up and realizing that the other person is the one who messed up, not you. The relationship wasn't a fair one before, because the protagonist (Ashlee) liked the guy way more than he liked her so she was always holding back on her opinions and apologizing so she wouldn't lose him. Now the relationship is over and she realizes that he's the ass who should be apologizing.

    General Commenthappysoul - amen! i had a relationship like this - where you are always apologizing and bending over backwards to try to accomodate the other person. when you realize its not worth it anymore, you can see that the other person should be apologizing in the first placeee! love this song.
