"I'm Sorry" as written by Christine Flores, Paul Poli, Everett Cowing, Demetrius Spencer and Shaffer Smith....
I know I wasn't there
When you needed me the most
I know I didn't care
And was afraid to get so close
Tonight it's getting hard to fall asleep
'Cause it's becoming clear that I broke all into pieces
And I cannot reverse it
So I've got one more thing to say

I'm sorry for your pain
I'm sorry for your tears
For all the little things I didn't know
I'm sorry for the words I didn't say
But what I still do
I'm still loving you

I know I let you wait
I've been away for far too long
But now I can relate
To everything that I did wrong
Stop breathing when I think I'm losing you
And there'll be no excuse so I'm on my knees
So listen please
Let me hold your hand once again

I'm sorry for your pain
I'm sorry for your tears
For all the little things I didn't know
I'm sorry for the words I didn't say
I'm sorry for the lies
I'm sorry for the fights
For not showing my love a dozen times
I'm sorry for the things that I've called mine
But what I still do
I'm still loving you

I'm sorry for your pain
I'm sorry for your tears
For all the little things I didn't know
I'm sorry for the words I didn't say
I'm sorry for the lies
And I'm sorry for the fights
For not showing my love a dozen times
I'm sorry for the things that I've called mine
But what I still do
I'm still loving you

That's what I'll always do

    My InterpretationIn connecting with this song I see that it doesn't have to be about romantic love. I see this song as about regret, missed opportunities, and losing someone you love (not just in death). There must have been someone that he loved who experienced many hardships. He could have done something to help them out or at least relieve some of the pain, but he didn't. He didn't allow them to get as close as they could have been, and thus he was ignorant of what they were facing until they were gone. Now he regrets not seeing their pain and helping them. He pledges to keep his love for them as it's all he can do now.
