"I'm Sorry" as written by and John (deutschendorf)/denver Denver....
It's cold here in the city
It always seems that way
I've been thinking about you almost everyday
Thinking about the good times
Thinking about the pain
Thinking about how bad it feels all alone again

I'm sorry for the way things are in China
I'm sorry things ain't what they used to be
But more than anything else, I'm sorry for myself
That you're not here with me

My friends all ask about you
I say you're doin' fine
I expect to hear from you almost any time
They all know I'm lying
I can't sleep at night
They all know I'm dying deep down inside

I'm sorry for all the lies I told you
I'm sorry for the things I didn't say
But more than anything else, I'm sorry for myself
I can't believe you went away

I'm sorry if I took some things for granted
I'm sorry for the chains I put on you
But more than anything else, I'm sorry for myself
For living without you

    General CommentThanks, Jennifer. I could never figure out that part of the lyric until now, and now it seems so obvious. You are absolutely right.
