Song of the Day #2,796: ‘Sorry’ – Justin Bieber

justin_bieber_sorryJustin Bieber’s second appearance in the top five of this week’s Billboard chart comes courtesy of ‘Sorry,’ a song written for both his ex Selena Gomez and the world in general. Call it the opening argument in his bid for pop culture retribution.

Interestingly, his co-writers on this song also contributed to several songs on Gomez’s latest album, Revival. Sound-wise, that’s good news, because Revival is a great album ‘Sorry’ has a similar vibe.

As much as I hate to say it, the three songs I’ve heard from Bieber’s album Promise are all pretty good. I know my musically-inclined nephew Daniel is a big fan of the record, so maybe I should take his word and give it a shot.

[Verse 1]
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 a referee?
Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness
I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice
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

[Pre-Chorus]
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?

[Chorus]
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?

[Verse 2]
I’ll take every single piece of the blame if you want me to
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 and forget this?

[Pre-Chorus]
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?

[Bridge]
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?

[Chorus]
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?

    It pains me to admit that this album is quite good. I still think the guy’s a jerk, but he is undeniably talented and he teamed with good writers and a good, creative producer to create something unique yet accessible.
