Feeling Sorry

Album: Brand New Eyes (2009)
  • We still live in the same town, well, don't we?
    But I don't see you around anymore.
    I go to all the same places, not even a trace of you.
    Your days are numbered at twenty four.
    And as I'm getting bored waiting 'round for you,
    We're not getting any younger, and I
    Won't look back 'cause there's no use
    It's time to move forward!

    I feel no sympathy,
    You live inside a cave!
    You barely get by, the rest of us are trying,
    There's no need to apologize,
    I've got no time for feeling sorry!

    Well I tried not to think of what might happen,
    When your reality, it finally cuts through.
    Well, as for me, I got out and I'm on the road.
    The worst part is that this (this), this could be you.
    You know it too, you can't run from your shame!
    You're not getting any younger, time,
    Keeps passing by, but you waited awake.
    It's time to roll over!

    I feel no sympathy,
    You live inside a cave!
    You barely get by, the rest of us are trying,
    There's no need to apologize,
    I've got no time for feeling sorry!

    And all the best lies,
    They are told with fingers tied!
    So cross them tight,
    Won't you promise me tonight
    If it's the last thing you do, you'll get out

    I feel no sympathy,
    You live inside a cave.
    You barely get by the rest of us,
    You're trying, there's no need to apologize,
    I've got no time, I've got no time!

    I feel no sympathy,
    You live inside a cave!
    You barely get by the rest of us,
    You're trying, there's no need to apologize,
    Got no time!

    I've got no time for feeling sorry!
    I've got no time for feeling sorry! Writer/s: HAYLEY WILLIAMS, HAYLEY NICHOLE WILLIAMS, JOSH FARRO, JOSHUA NEIL FARRO, TAYLOR YORK, TAYLOR BENJAMIN YORK

  • Trever from N. Syracuse, Nythis meaning is great!! i mean it. you can not expect your goals and dreams to come to you with you doing no work, life does not work that way. anyhow, it does suck watching some of the best people with these big and great dreams put them in the garbage! In a way i have seen some of my closest friends throw away dreams, as i will always try to save them! you will be able to tell if you are a really close friend to me, if you give up on something i will be there to catch what ever you gave up on.
