Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word... Elton John

Brenda and Jax after their aborted second wedding... November 1996

What have I got to do to make you love me

What have I got to do to make you care,

What do I do when lightning strikes me

And I wake to find that you're not there?

 

What have I got to do to make you want me,

What have I got to do to be heard,

What do I say when it's all over?

And sorry seems to be the hardest word,

 

It's sad (so sad)

It's a sad, sad situation

And it's getting more and more absurd.

It's sad (so sad)

Why can't we talk it over?

Oh it seems to me

That sorry seems to be the hardest word.

 

What have I got to do to make you love me

What have I got to do to be heard,

What do I do when lightning strikes me

What have I got to do?

What have I got to do?

When sorry seems to be the hardest word?
