Imagine Dragons – I'm So Sorry lyrics

About time for anyone telling you off for all your deeds
Not time the roaring thunder stopped in cold to read
I get mine and make no excuses
Waste of precious breath (No time)
The sun shines on everyone
Everyone, love yourself to death


So you gotta fire up, you gotta let go
You'll never be loved 'til you make your own
You gotta face up, you gotta get yours
You'll never know the top till you get too low


Oh, a son of a
Stepfather
Oh, a son of a
I'm so sorry

Oh, a son of a
Stepfather
Oh, a son of a
I'm so sorry


No lies and no deceiving
Men is what he loves
I keep trying to conceive
That death is from above (No time)

I get mine and make no excuses
Waste of precious breath (No time)
The sun shines on everyone
Everyone, love yourself to death

So you gotta fire up, you gotta let go
You'll never be loved til you make your own
You gotta face up, you gotta get yours
You'll never know the top till you get too low


Oh, a son of a
Stepfather
Oh, a son of
I'm so sorry

Oh, a son of a
Stepfather
Oh, a son of
I'm so sorry

Life isn't always what you think it'd be
Turn your head for one second and the tables turn
And I know, I know that I did you wrong
Will you trust me when I say that I'll make it up to you somehow
Somehow


So you gotta fire up, you gotta let go
You'll never be loved til you've made your own
You gotta face up, you gotta get yours
You'll never know the top till you get too low

Oh, a son of a
stepfather
Oh, a son of a
I'm so sorry

Oh, a son of a
Stepfather
Oh, a son of a
I'm so sorry

I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

    The theme of this song is to be who you truly are, or you will regret it. In the text, the speaker states "No lies no deceiving men is what you lose". This is referring to how if you lie and deceive people, you will lose them. It is also saying how you must be who you are or you might lose your loved ones due to your mistakes, but if they are truly there for you, then you could make it up to them. We can infer this because of the lines, "And I know, and I know that I did you wrong. Will you trust me when I say that I'll make it up to you somehow. Somehow." There is constant repetition of the words "I'm So Sorry" meaning that he must be truly sorry for what he did and he wants to take it back. Therefore, the them of this song is to be who you truly are, or you will regret it. Being fake comes with consequences that you will have to make up for.

    I love this song! I really didn't listen to the words much as they are not exactly clear unless you read them on the CD insert or online lyrics page or you just have a good ear. So Even though I did not know the exact words of the song "I'm so sorry" I did start to wonder what this song was about. I was like," Is he talking about Jesus?? The more I heard the song the more I felt he might be talking about Jesus " (no lies and no deceiving man is what he loves) (hard to see that death is from above "God") I'm so sorry may refer to "us "the "man" the "singer" sorry for our sins. Son of a step father "that could be Jesus as God was his real father". I'm just putting my thoughts in. That's what I was feeling. This song is about getting saved again and trying to get back to Jesus.
