Guns N' Roses - Sorry Lyrics




You like to hurt me
You know that you do
You like to think in some way
That it's me and not you
But we know that isn't true

You like to have me jump and be good
But I don't want to do it
You don't know why I won't act
The way you think I should

You thought they'd make me behave and submit (submit)
What were you thinking 'cause I don't forget

You don't know why I won't give in
To hell with the pressure
I'm not cavin' in

You know that I got under your skin
You sold your soul
But I won't let you win

You talk too much
You say I do
Difference is nobody cares about you

You've got all the answers
You know everything
Why nobody asked you's a mystery to me

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to or not to believe

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who you can trust now or you should believe
You should believe
You don't know who you can trust now or you should believe

You close your eyes
All well and good
I'll kick your ass like I said that I would

You tell them stories they'd rather believe
Use and confuse them
They're numb and naive

Truth is the truth hurts
Don't you agree?

It's harder to live with the truth about you
Than to live with the lies about me

Nobody owes you
Not one goddamn thing
You know where to put your
Just shut up and sing

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to or not to believe

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You chose to hurt those that love you
And won't set them free
Won't set them free
You chose to hurt those that love you
And won't set them free

You don't need anyone else to be sorry for you
You've got no heart
You can't see
All that you've done for me
I know the reasons you tear me apart

  27. Margaret Donelli

    This is so sad 😔

  28. Patrick Better earned than given

    When slash starts this solo, it's like a lengendary warrior fires a spiritual arrow through your heart.

    Deffinatley hits a soft spot, like any song with true feelings should.

    Rodrigo Peloni

    This solo isn't Slash's, it's Buckethead's.
    And yeah, the man has an espectacular talent to hit one's feelings.

    Rodrigo Peloni

    Listen to 'I Love My Parents', 'For Mom', 'Watching The Boats With My Dad', 'Mantaray' and 'Electric Tears', all by Buckethead. It's an emotional trip.
    Oh, 'Soothsayer' and 'Sail On Soothsayer' too.

    Patrick Better earned than given

    @Rodrigo Peloni Will deffinatley do that thanks...... I love music played with feelings, this new age shit that is engineered and so mapped out sucks.

    Rodrigo Peloni

    @Patrick Better earned than given You're welcome haha... Yeah, music is so dull nowadays, not a single speck of emotion, nothing.

  29. Paulo Medeiros Junior

    Meus parabens pra pessoa q postou Obrigado

  30. Mr. CLAWS

    Best song on the album . I don't look at it as a true gnr song but I put it up there with estranged.

  35. Ignacy Drozdowicz

    Chinese Democracy is much better than most people think

    Jay Wang

    I love this album a lot. It's shame that Slash didn't want to try new thing. Axl is such a great songwriter. On the other hand, Slash's songs after leaving gun & rose were a little bit boring for me.

    Kat R

    I agree. Some people refused to give it a chance since it wasn't the original lineup. Who cares? It's so good. There are other GNR albums that are nowhere near as good. AFD is amazing but now is so overplayed that I never want to hear it again. Sad.

    Mstr Unknown

    @Kat R original line up? Guess you should take alot of time to research how many times the lineups were different album to album

    Xristos Tenediotis

    Amazing album!!!

    Rab 1612

    I loved the band axl put together during the start of the millennium

  36. Luisabel Salazar Segura

    Si es que me encantan!!! 😍

  37. Matheus Viníciuszz

    *chorando feito uma menininha!*

  38. MISSING 1000 YEARS

    Nice for 60 yo dudes

  39. SEFTO

    sebastian bach sings in this song and another song on this album i think

  40. Cris Nanzer

    Si no fuera por el Seba Bach esto no suena. (Amo a GN'R)
    Pero nadie está notando al Seba... le levanta el tema entero loco! Ni en los créditos lo ponen

    Aymara Lorena

    En qué parte está?

  41. Ken Brunet

    I read some of what people wrote about this song. How it's one of the best on chinese democracy. I just don't get it. Some times songs grow on you so i give it a listen every once in while. Still nothing. Nothing in this song grabs me. at all. It's so weird to me how subjective the love of certain songs can be.

  42. J Alsbrook44

    This song is something I can identify with right now. The black sheep of the family is usually the one telling the truth...

  43. サイツr.j.

    Still my favorite album.

  44. s j

    Sorry but I support pregnant men. Love Axl

  45. Anna Monrose

    💙🍒🌹💙🍒💘🌹

  46. Thomas Henesey

    God damn this album.is so good. Was beyond happy when I bought it when it came out. He brought greay musicians in for the recording of this and it was so different but it stood on its own ground.

  47. Corey M

    Most underrated album

  48. Macky M

    Fuck you!... I ain't sorry for me!!!...!!

  49. Macky M

    It's always you fs.... Never me!....!

  50. Engelchen 1

    I love this Song.
    💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋

  51. Mariel Brizuela

    Amo esta banda la mejor de todos los tiempos 🌷♥️

    Guigui Le Rappeur - La Chaîne

    Mariel Brizuela yass !!

  52. Movies Music & More

    I hate to say it but....... we all know Nickelback is far superior to Guns N’ Roses

    Movies Music & More

    @Akainu Sakazuki Yes way. If you have heard Nickelback's Miss You off their 2014 album No Fixed address it is way better than Guns N' Roses Welcome To The Jungle. That Shit trash. This is G'N'R's best album. Chinese democracy for life baby woo hoo. P.s. Fuck slash

    Charles Brown

    Music is one of few purely objective things vh in this world. Still I must say Nickle Back vs GNR is laughable. Lol

    Charles Brown

    Space in Nickle Back was deliberate. Chew on it for a bit. Lol

  53. Alejandro Martinez

    OMG that solo!

  54. Nick ripley

    Such a powerful song axle is so amazing and misunderstood hes a true genius of our time

    Nick ripley

    I wish he could see this comment I want him to know

  55. Meryn Rossiter

    DPainful modern shit for all of us....

  56. Meryn Rossiter

    Axl hired a foolproof lead guitarist. He can hide behind him on this . Glad he got rid of slash for a while

  57. Shawn Jacobs

    This song is so fucking true in all aspects of so many lives.absolutly riveting.

  58. Luu Quinteros :)

    One the best song of chinese

  59. DiamanTeemo

  63. Samer Hannah

    Who wrote the solo slash ?

    Samer Hannah

    @Alejandro Segovia Bumble foot made a piece of art more better than slash

    William Berwick

    dj ashba doesn't play on the record. guitars on chinese democracy were played by paul tobias, robin finck, buckethead, richard fortus, and bumblefoot

    Rodrigo Peloni

    This solo is Buckethead's.

    Rodrigo Peloni

    Buckethead plays the second solo in Chinese Democracy, the first one in Better, the one on If The World, the second one in There Was A Time, the second one in Riad N' The Bedouins, the one in Sorry, all the solos in I.R.S., one of the solos in Madagascar and the first one in Prostitute

    Rodrigo Peloni

    And he plays lead and rhythm in every song I think.

  64. Samer Hannah

    Best song ever from guns and roses captivating solo when the beat stops before the solo it shakes my feelings

  65. Mooncalf Hero

    Is this a gag album or something?

  66. Mannyn Rocha

    The first guitar solo is amazing! Great feeling...

    Rodrigo Peloni

    Only one word Buckethead

  67. KINGKABLAMACHU

    Bleck! Yarghhb. WHISKY TANGO FOXTROT?!?!? Time to bleach my mind with "Coma", all ten mins of glorious, true, Guns.

    jdellinger1999

    Estranged is the best.

    ROCKNROLLSTAR

    @Brett the worst guitar player of all time.

    Lewis Cypher

    Spell his name right.

  77. Meryn Rossiter

    This tune should be sprayed over every baby boomer except Axl....

  78. Eduardo Schereder

    Base Black Sabbath fase Dio com um solo bluesly estilo Pink Floyd. O modo que Axl canta essa é assustador.

  79. Eduardo Schereder

    LAYERS!

  80. Meryn Rossiter

    This song is scary in its x generation honesty

    Meryn Rossiter

    Oh fuck , Axl is a boomer

    Esse solo me arrepia e sempre o que não queria lembrar "/

  88. 0U8123MTA3

    I first heard this song during the GnR St Louis concert. That concert ticket was worth every dollar. Money well spent.

    Steve Gomez

    0U8123MTA3 wow!!! Really?? They sang this song way back then 🤔?????

    0U8123MTA3

    @Steve Gomez Well, I missed the concert you are thinking of. I'm sure Fortis talked him into playing St. Louis 2017 since it is his home town. I don't know if they will do St. Louis again.

  89. 0U8123MTA3

    @4:04 The same thought I have about people who lie. They tell lies when the truth would work better. How they live with themselves I cannot understand.

  90. Adam Turner

  94. ClaudiaMGR68

    uau !! I like this song !!  I like it very much.......   "the truth is the truth hurts".....very good music  and the words too !!!!!!!   excellent..."it's harder to live with the truth about you than to live with the lies about me".........

    AGS 15

    ClaudiaMGR68 the lyrics are actually based off of Axl and slash’s feud at the time. Once you realise that, the lyrics make so much more sense.

    Rosanna Hernandez

    @AGS 15 that's what I throught when i listened first time
