"I'm Sorry (Album Version)" as written by Lacey Nicole Sturm, James Culpepper, Kirkpatrick Seals, Jared Hartmann and Sameer Bhattacharya....
I'm sorry.
I don't mean to remember.
It's true that I dream less often.
I'm not ashamed of that long December

Your hand's coming down again.
I close my eyes and brace myself.
I only noticed your face.
No matter what you're gonna build my shell,
I'm falling.

I'm shedding my skin, but it's not time I'm told.
I am aware of what you mean and by then I'm only ten years old.
I close my eyes and brace myself.
I only noticed your face.

No matter what your gonna build my shell
My scars are yours today.
This story ends so good.

I love you and I understand that you stood where I stood.
I close my eyes and brace my self.
I only notice your face.

No matter what your gonna break my shell
I'm done healing.
I'm done healing.

    Song MeaningI think that when she say "i'm only ten years old" I think its about when she first started experimenting with drugs. Because in one of the kerrang articles it says that she started experimenting when she was ten.

    General CommentYeah, she did start drugs at ten...I don't know, some of the lines in this song, such as "Your hand's coming down again," really stand out to me as a story of childhood abuse.

    General CommentI think this song has something to do with her cousin who was allegedly beat to death by her uncle. She said that that's what made her stop believing in God and eventually got her into drugs in the first place. I don't know, just a wild guess.

    General CommentI'm Sorry is about how her mother used to hit her when she was young, she understand why and Lacey forgives her.

    "I'm not ashamed
    Of that long December
    Your hand's coming down again." = Lacey remembers when her mom used to hit her.

    "I close my eyes and brace myself
    I only noticed your face." = Before her mom used to hit her she'd cringe and just get herself ready for it, It was like they were the only 2 people in the room, she remembers that night/day/time period.

    "But it's not time I'm told
    I am aware (am aware)
    Of what you mean by then
    I'm only ten years old." = Lacey was only 10 at the time and now since she's about 34 now, she understand and is fully aware why her mom used to hit her. No one had to tell her, she understood herself.

    "My scars are yours today
    This story ends so good
    I love you and I understand
    That you stood where I stood." = When Lacey's mom hit her, it left scars and now It's just a reminder and now that she's grown up she's happier now and the story of her life ends great. She loves her mom and why she did that and maybe when her mom was little, she used to get hit she understands where her mom stands.

    "
    I'm done healing
    I'm done healing." = She's done healing, It's over now, she forgives everybody who has ever done anything bad to her.
