"You're Not Sorry" as written by and Taylor Swift....
All this time I was wasting
Hoping you would come around
I've been giving out chances every time
And all you do is let me down
And it's taking me this long
Baby but I figured you out
And you're thinking we'll be fine again
But not this time around

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no, no no

Looking so innocent
I might believe you if I didn't know
Could've loved you all my life
If you hadn't left me waiting in the cold
And you got your share of secrets
And I'm tired of being last to know
And now you're asking me to listen
Cause it's worked each time before

But you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no

You're not sorry, no no

You had me crawling for you honey
And it never would've gone away, no
You used to shine so bright
But I watched all of it fade

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw there's nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before you're not sorry
No, no, no

You're not sorry, no no (no)

    General Commenti think its about the guy who picks you up when he wants you
    then drops you the next day because he doesnt need you anymore
    taylor said "it is about this guy who turned out to not be who i thought i was"
    shes sick of him being there only when it suits him

    its a gorgeous song :)

    General Commentok...the accurate lyrics are:

    All this time I was wasting
    Hoping you would come around
    I've been given out chances
    Every time and all you do
    Is let me down
    And it's taken me this long
    Baby but I figured you out
    And you're thinking
    We'll be fine again
    But not this time around

    You don't have to call, anymore
    I wont pick up the phone
    This is the last straw
    Don't want to hurt anymore

    And you can say that you're sorry
    But I don't believe you baby
    Like I did before
    You're not sorry
    No no no no

    Lookin' so innocent
    I might believe you if I didn't know
    Could've loved you all my life
    If you hadn't left me waiting in the cold
    And you got your share of secrets
    And I'm tired of being less than known
    And you're asking me to listen
    'Cause its worked each time before

    But you don't have to call, anymore
    I wont pick up the phone
    This is the last straw
    Don't want to hurt anymore

    And you can tell me that you're sorry
    But I don't believe you baby
    Like I did before
    You're not sorry
    No no

    You're not sorry
    No no

    You had me falling for you, honey
    And it never would have gone away, no
    You used to shine so bright
    But I watched our love, it fade

    So you don't have to call, anymore
    I wont pick up the phone
    This is the last straw
    There's nothing left to beg for

    And you can say that you're sorry
    But I don't believe you baby
    Like I did before
    You're not sorry
    No no no no

    You're not sorry
    No no

    no no oh no no oh

    General CommentTo me, this song is about an ex you just kept going back to whenever they asked [or begged]. It's a beautifully sung, beautifully worded song about something sad. But good for her for realizing what was going on!
    I think this song could be a continuation of "White Horse," or at the least it's about the same boy.
    Lyrics from "White Horse:"
    "Say you're sorry/That face of an angel/Comes out just when you need it to/As I paced back and forth all this time/Cause I honestly believed in you/Holding on/The days drag on/Stupid girl,/I should have known, I should have known"

    It just seems to fit.

    Also, at the end of the song, I think it's "but I watched all of it fade" instead of "But I watched our love, it fade"

    General CommentThis song is fantastic.
    It's about this guy who completely uses a girl and is selfish.
    and she's finally not buying into his apologies.
    Loveee it =)

    General CommentThis song always makes me cry because I can relate to it so well. My ex tells me he loves me, then ignores me and treats me like crap, and then apologizes and says he wants to be with me, then he says he loves me...blah,blah the cycle never ends. It took me forever but I eventually did figure him out. He doesn't actually care, he just knows he's got you wrapped around his finger and you'll always forgive him, that way he'll always have someone. It's taking advantage of a girl's feelings and sometimes, you just have to cut him out for good, because you could do so much better.
