Remember me the one who heard your cries
And reached out and dried your eyes

Remember me the one who found you and wrapped all my love around you
When you were all alone and all your dreams were gone
When you were nothing but a tear stained face I took you in
Know your broken wing has mended and your need for me has ended
Know you say you must be free
You wanna fly away from me
You were lost in yesterday I gave you my tomorrow
Know your leaving me in sorrow and you telling me: "im sorry" but baby

Sorry is a sorry word after all I've done for you
Sorry is a sorry word when I need a love that's true

Out of sympathy and all you feel for me
After all the sweet love I've given you (given you baby)
Girl you walk away with the best of me
The love I gave to you, you given to someone new
And sorry won't ease this misery

Remember me who took the hand, held it up to make a stand
Remember me the one who's love has shared, with one who really cares

Now you've turned away from me and say that you sorry
That it had to be baby sorry it had to be that way

Sorry is a sorry word after all I've done for you
Sorry is a sorry word when I need a love that's true 
Sorry is a sorry word when I need a love that's true
