Justin Bieber – Sorry lyrics

[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 (oh, no, no),
Cause I'm missing more than just your body, 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's pretty self-explanatory! He really wants her (a girl) to understand he's sorry for repeating the same mistake over and over again. He clearly doesn't know what to do but say sorry knowing that he keeps on doing this to her. He misses her, like yayabby said not just physically. He wonders if she can forgive him one more time.

    This song is pretty self-explanatory. He is sorry that he messed up so many times, but he's saying all the blame can't be put on him. He misses more than just the physical aspect her, but her as a whole and wants to know if he can have another chance.

    No person lived without wrongs and mistakes, absolutely we are not perfect, the song wants to tell us to let someone a second chance or many chances to let him/her change, even you are tired giving him many chances. And plus, Forgiveness is the best option to be happy. That's all folks.

    This song just confuses me big time. So, in his recent album, "Purpose", there is a song called "Sorry". And it is about Justin trying to apologize to a girl (I know it's Selena Gomez) and trying to get her back with him. That's totally normal. Whatever. Then, there's the song "Love Yourself", also about a girl (I know it's Selena Gomez) who he DOES NOT nor will ever care about again. The song is telling the girl to stop calling his phone and to go love yourself, because I don't anymore. It also mentions how his mama never liked her, but his mama liked everyone else. These two songs, most likely both about Selena, are exact opposites! Which one, do you want her back or do you hate her? I just realized these two song meanings, and I am mucho grande confused. I still love you Justin, but you confuse me. Talk about an on again off again relationship!
