"Sorry" as written by Maria Mena and Arvid Solvang....
Vague sound of rain
Pierces through my song again
But I get distracted by the way his toes move when he plays
So I let it burn

I just poured my heart out
There's bits of it on the floor
And I take what's left of it and rinse it under cold water
And call him up for more

And I say baby, yes I feel stupid to call you, but I'm lonely
And I don't think you meant it when you said you couldn't love me
And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do, you'd feel it too

He said I'm sorry
So sorry
I'm sorry
So sorry

He grabs my wrist
As my fingers turn into angry fists
And I whisper why can't you love me, I'll change for you
I'll play the part

And I say baby, so I feel stupid to call you, but I'm lonely
And I don't think you meant it when you said you couldn't love me
And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do, you'd feel it too

[Repeat x2]
He said I'm sorry
So sorry
I'm sorry
I am sorry

    General Commentthis song does wonderful things to her voice. or maybe it's the other way around. the lyrics are beautiful. who doesn't feel anything when she sings
    "He grabs my wrist
    As my fingers turn into angry fists
    And I whisper 'Why can't you love me, I'll change for you
    I'll play the part.'"?

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Anyone who has heard it will be able to relate to it...the heartbreak of a lost love and the desire and will to do anythig to be with someone is something everyone experiences...beautiful and melancollie song...

    General CommentI agree with you. I adore Maria Mena after listening to "Patience", and then I came across this song. It's so sad, it's something ANYONE can relate to. I know I can.

    General CommentAny girl and feel this song. Messy break ups where you aren't ready to fall out of love, when they have already given up on you? Boys break hearts.

    General CommentI won't state the meaning, cause... its kinda obvious.
    I broke up with my boyfriend a couple of months... And, and I called him the other day. And. And I can't even talk about it. But yeah it sucks

    "I just poured my heart out
    There's bits of it on the floor
    And I take what's left of it and rinse it under cold water
    And call him up for more"

    Yeah, I did that. And that was it.

    General CommentThere is nothing worse than a broken heart and how it feels when a relationship is ending when you don't want it too. Maria definitely hit the spot for me when she sings:
    "And I whisper 'Why can't you love me, I'll change for you.I'll play the part.'

    And I say 'Baby, yes I feel stupid to call you, but I'm lonely.And I don't think you meant it when you said you couldn't love me. And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do you'd feel it too"

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my friend so much.
    because she puts her heart out there and lets it get broken again and again.
    and she doesn't realize she can't change the way he feels.
