"I'm Not Sorry" as written by and Christopher D/owen Gates....
Well maybe it's a shame
That it happened this way
But there's nothing, I can do
And I know you like to say
That in a week it will not change
But we both know, it ain't true

So tell me for the last time why you're here
And I'll pretend to love you for the fear of breaking you

Close your eyes
Baby take the time to choose
What it is you want to do
Cause I'm not sorry
And in the end
You know it all comes back to you
So take the time to choose
Cause I'm not sorry

So turn your head away
From the mess that we have made
Cause there's nothing, we can do
Well don't you feel ashamed
When the light begins to fade
On the one thing you thought you knew

And tell me for the last time why you're here
And I'll pretend to love you for the fear of breaking you

Close your eyes
Baby take the time to choose
What it is you want to do
Cause I'm not sorry
And in the end you know it all comes back to you
So take the time to choose
Cause I'm not sorry

Lonely eyes I cannot trust
I know its tough love but we must
Cut the ties and throw it away
I never wanted it this way
A broken heart is left to bleed
An open book is left to read
It's crystal clear so tell me why can?t you see?

Close you're eyes
Baby take the time to choose
What it is you want to do
Cause I'm not sorry
And in the end you know it all comes back to you
So take the time to choose
Cause I'm not sorry no no
Cause I'm not sorry oh no no
Cause I'm not sorry

    General CommentBeautiful, beautiful intro!

    I really like Test Your Reflex, they're one of those bands that people underappreciate.

    General CommentThis song doesn't really specify what happened between the two, but it almost seems like he's given up caring about the relationship and isn't sorry about that because of something she did "Lonely eyes I cannot trust." He says there's nothing he can do to change what happens because she is the one who has to decide to throw it away or not. He feels bad for how she feels now, "And I'll pretend to love you for the fear of breaking you," but he's still bitter "Well don't you feel ashamed when the light begins to fade on the one thing you thought you knew," and "It's crystal clear so tell me why can't you see?" Seems like he's trying to be a gentleman about the situation while fighting back urges to hurt her back.
