"So Sorry, I Said" as written by and Tennant/lowe....
If this is a ghetto, I'm in it with you
If it's just a prison, I'm locked in it too
I tried to leave you but after all that we had said
I went to pieces when I should have shouted and screamed instead
So sorry, I said

Your powers of persuasion, those quizzical eyes
Have tired and tied me with innocent guile
I would have walked out and after all the tears we shed
I should have stalked out gone and painted the town bright red but instead
So sorry, I said

How tough it gets, don't talk to me about it
To pay off your debts, I worked on overtime
And you say you never believed in luck

If you need a reason, consider me mad
An old retainer, loyal and sad
I bought my freedom but after all that we had shared
I couldn't leave you, think of the skins I'd have to shed instead
So sorry, I said
So sorry, I said
So sorry, I said

    MemoryThis song is really well written. I completely relate to it. I've the made the same mistaking of sticking it out with truly awful, angry, manipulative, and even abusive partners. I would think, "that happened", yet I'm still with that person. I should have ended it right then and there? Why am l the one expected to smooth things out? I am the one doing all the emotional work, and l just have to take it? Yes l regret it deeply. So sorry l said. I wasted too many years on these people
