"Feeling Sorry" as written by Hayley Williams, Josh Farro and Taylor York...
We still live in the same town, well, don't we?
But I don't see you around anymore.
I go to all the same places, not even a trace of you.
Your days are numbered at twenty four.
And as I'm getting bored waiting 'round for you,
We're not getting any younger, and I
Won't look back 'cause there's no use
It's time to move forward!

I feel no sympathy,
You live inside a cave!
You barely get by, the rest of us are trying,
There's no need to apologize,
I've got no time for feeling sorry!

Well I tried not to think of what might happen,
When your reality, it finally cuts through.
Well, as for me, I got out and I'm on the road.
The worst part is that this (this), this could be you.
You know it too, you can't run from your shame!
You're not getting any younger, time,
Keeps passing by, but you waited awake.
It's time to roll over!

I feel no sympathy,
You live inside a cave!
You barely get by, the rest of us are trying,
There's no need to apologize,
I've got no time for feeling sorry!

And all the best lies,
They are told with fingers tied!
So cross them tight,
Won't you promise me tonight
If it's the last thing you do, you'll get out

I feel no sympathy,
You live inside a cave.
You barely get by the rest of us,
You're trying, there's no need to apologize,
I've got no time, I've got no time!

I feel no sympathy,
You live inside a cave!
You barely get by the rest of us,
You're trying, there's no need to apologize,
Got no time!

I've got no time for feeling sorry!
I've got no time for feeling sorry!

    General CommentIt's not about Josh.
    Hayley's not brutal like that.

    It's probably about someone else from her past that really effected her...

    General CommentI'm leaning towards Jason rather than Hunter... Didn't Hunter leave to get married? Why would someone hold a grudge over that? Besides, the line "we still live in the same town" leads me to believe it's Jason as he was/is Hayley's next door neighbour...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's about Hunter or Jason, probably Hunter because it sounds like it didn't really end in good terms.

    "We still live in the same town
    Well, don't we?
    But I don't see you around anymore
    I go to all the same places
    Not even a trace of you"

    Maybe after he left the band, they still had the intentions of staying friends, or he had lead onto it, and she kept that hope for a little while, but she's kind of given up on him now.

    "I feel no sympathy
    You live inside a cage
    You barely get by
    The rest of us are trying
    There's no need to apologize
    I've got no time for feeling sorry"

    Maybe music was his dream, but he wasn't working out with the band and never attempted to fix his problems with them or get with another band. She's saying she knows she would be heart-broken if something like that happened to her, but he didn't even try, so what's the point of feeling sorry for him?

    I don't know, that's how I see this song. But all of the good artists make their songs to where they can mean any number of things, so who knows?

    That makes me think it's probably a former band member, not a past boyfriend or anything...
    Just a thought though.
