Everybody says they're sorry
When faced with somebody's pain.
They're just words to fill the empty space,
Because they don't know what else to say.
They're just empty words
Meant to make us feel better.
What they don't understand
Is that it just makes us uncomfortable.
“I'm sorry” tells us they don't understand.
They haven't lost someone the loved;
Haven't been betrayed by someone they trusted.
They haven't just been told that they're dying.
No, they don't understand anything.
How could they possibly know how we feel
Unless they've gone through it, lived it.
Unless they've breathed it, tasted it.
Two little words never meant less to me
Than those two little words of sympathy.
I don't want empty words filling the void.
I just want everything to be normal, happy.
