Sorry - Justin Bieber



The Experience: I made those mistakes maybe once or twice, and by once or twice I mean maybe a couple a hundred times...I just need one more shot at second chances. Yeah, is it too late now to say sorry... Justin Bieber hides a deep song about forgiveness behind a run of the mill dance video...



Music Video: The dance video is just eye candy, but all those bodies actually underline the point of Sorry's lyrics: I'm missing more than just your body. But the lyric video follows the lyrics of Sorry step by step as his voice and her fingers sing and type them out. The second to last shot of him disappearing into the water from her bucket explains why the apology is so real - he's put everything he has into it, and that apology, and the love and sincerity behind it, is what's left when you wash off the dirt and the grime.

The Meaning of Sorry: It starts off as a typical plea to get back together - let me redeem myself tonight sounds like it's more about sex than anything else. But the next lines - I miss more than just your body - take the song in a much deeper direction. Forgiveness is the value behind the apology, and Sorry does a good job of showcasing the depth, and the difficulty of true forgiveness. You use bodies - that's simple, and pretty animal. But you love, cherish, miss and apologize to people. In the end, that's what Sorry is all about: the fact that relationships are about people. People who are more than just your body. People who can't be replaced. People who have to be forgiven, and not just forgotten.

Ask yourself: Who can referee your relationship? Who can help you forgive, and ask for forgiveness?

Album: Purpose

LYRICS:

You gotta go and get
Angry at all of my honesty
You know I try but I don't do too well with apologies
I hope I don't run out of time, could someone call the referee?
Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness

I know you know that I
Made those mistakes maybe once or twice
And by once or twice I Mean
Maybe a couple a hundred times
So let me oh let me
Redeem oh redeem oh myself tonight
Cause I just need one more shot at second chances

Yeah
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I'm missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?
I'm sorry yeah
Sorry yeah
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?

I'll take every single piece of the blame
If you want me too
But you know that there is no innocent one in this game for two
I'll go I'll go and then
You go you go out and spill the truth
Can we both say the words, say forget this?

Yeah
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I'm missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?

I'm not just trying to get you back on me
Cause I'm missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?

I'm sorry (yeah)
Sorry (oh)
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?

I'm sorry (yeah)
Sorry (oh)
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?
