You re Not Sorry
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

All this time I was wasting
Hoping you would come around
I've been giving out chances every time
And all you do is let me down
And it's taking me this long
Baby but I figured you out
And you're thinking we'll be fine again
But not this time around

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no, no no

Looking so innocent
I might believe you if I didn't know
Could've loved you all my life
If you hadn't left me waiting in the cold
And you got your share of secrets
And I'm tired of being last to know
And now you're asking me to listen
Cause it's worked each time before

But you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no

You're not sorry, no no

You had me crawling for you honey
And it never would've gone away, no
You used to shine so bright
But I watched all of it fade

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw there's nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before you're not sorry
No, no, no




You're not sorry, no no (no)

All this time I was wasting
I spent all this time waiting for you to change


Hoping you would come around
I wanted you to change your ways and come back to me


I've been giving out chances every time
I've given you multiple chances to make things right between us


And all you do is let me down
But you continue to disappoint me


And it's taking me this long
It's taken me a while to realize


Baby but I figured you out
But now I understand your true intentions


And you're thinking we'll be fine again
You expect us to reconcile


But not this time around
But this time, I'm not falling for it


You don't have to call anymore
You don't need to try to contact me


I won't pick up the phone
Because I won't answer


This is the last straw
This is the final issue that has broken us apart


Don't wanna hurt anymore
I don't want to feel this pain anymore


And you can tell me that you're sorry
You can apologize


But I don't believe you baby
But I don't trust you anymore


Like I did before
The way I used to believe in you


You're not sorry, no no, no no
You don't actually feel remorseful


Looking so innocent
You appear to be innocent


I might believe you if I didn't know
I might have believed you if I didn't know the truth


Could've loved you all my life
I could have spent my entire life loving you


If you hadn't left me waiting in the cold
If you hadn't abandoned me when I needed you


And you got your share of secrets
You have your own secrets


And I'm tired of being last to know
And I'm tired of always finding out last


And now you're asking me to listen
And now you're asking me to hear you out


Cause it's worked each time before
Because you've convinced me before


You had me crawling for you honey
You made me beg for your attention


And it never would've gone away, no
And I would have continued to crave your love


You used to shine so bright
You used to be my shining light


But I watched all of it fade
But I've watched you lose your spark


This is the last straw there's nothing left to beg for
This is the final issue and there's nothing left to ask for


No, no, no
You don't get another chance
