Not Sorry Now

How could I have stayed so long?

When in my heart I wanted to be free

Now I will reclaim what’s lost

I will find the pride inside of me

I prayed for a long time

And tried to sacrifice

You said listen to you dear

And I would get it right

I’m not sorry now

I’m not sorry now

For fighting who you wanted me to be

I’m not sorry now, not sorry now

For holding on to my identity

Cause it’s just me

 

 

Days and months and years went by

But not enough had changed for you to see

And how I cried and tried I tried

All the while I thought that it was me

 

Then I looked out beyond us

And finally saw the light    (sax response)

I couldn’t live with the guilt and

The pain I felt inside

 

 

I’m not sorry now

I’m not sorry now

For fighting who you wanted me to be

I’m not sorry now, not sorry now

For holding on to my identity

Cause it’s just me

 

I was so over us

Long before we were through

No I won’t take it back and I won’t take this crap

It’s not me, it’s not me, it’s you

 

 

I’m not sorry now

I’m not sorry now

For fighting who you wanted me to be

I’m not sorry now, not sorry now

For holding on to my identity

Cause it’s just me
