"Sorry Son" as written by and Dolores O'riordan....
Sorry son, this is what I've done
This is what I've done
It was a long sad supper without you
I had to be cruel to be kind
We have to leave the past behind
La la la
And isn't it strange how people can change
And isn't it weird how people I feared
They all seem worthless now

I will ride on my bicycle, I ride thinking of you
As I'm riding on my tricycle, I ride

I see the sun in the trees,
And I feel the psychedelic breeze
And I see the sun in the trees, and I feel the
Psychedelic breeze

Sorry son, this is what I've done
This is what I've done
It was a long sad supper without you
Please don't hold me responsible
I tried and tried
It wasn't the same without my brain
It wasn't a game, it wasn't a game
Oh not now

I will ride on my bicycle, I ride thinking of you
As I'm riding on my tricycle, I ride

I see the sun in the trees,
And I feel the psychedelic breeze
And I feel the psychedelic breeze

La la la

Sorry son
Oh I am so sorry son

    General CommentPretty song. I don't know exactly what she's sorry about (gave him up for adoption, maybe? "I had to be cruel to be kind"), but I like it anyway. I love how the line "thinking of you" is sung.

    General Commentlooks pretty straightforward that she ended her son's life in the womb. it sounds like she was under pressure from others ("And isn't it strange how people can change, oh
    And isn't it weird how people I feared They all seem worthless now") "i had to be cruel to be kind" sounds like the propaganda people pressuring a woman into abortion give. "i wasn't the same without my brain": refers to the mindstate she was in at the time, of course

    General CommentIf I was to guess, I would say it is about a woman who gave her child up for adoption and is meeting them for the first time years later ("It was a long sad supper without you").
