Let’s Talk Lyrics
Pardon me, excusez-moi (I’m sorry)
Yeah, I coulda made a better choice
I mean, what the fuck?
I’m sorry
I’m fuckin’ sorry
Yeah
I’m sorry, I’m sorry I don’t see you more
I’m sorry that the four minutes where you see your son could feel like a chore
Sis’, I’m sorry I’m your kin
Sorry we ain’t close as we should’ve been
Sorry to my old friends
The stories we coulda wrote if our egos didn’t take the pen
Sorry to the freaks I led on (nah, for real, I’m sorry)
Who thought their life was gonna change ’cause I gave ’em head on
But instead, I sped off, yeah, I know I’m dead wrong
Sorry to the guys I had to hide
Sorry to the girls I had to lie to
Who ain’t need to know if I was by the lake switchin’ tides, too
Anyway, I don’t wanna talk
Sorry if you gotta dig for info I don’t wanna give
So you stalk, make up fibs
Just to talk ’bout my private life ’cause you weird (uh)
Met that girl this year (but), that’s none ya biz
Give enough with my art, know your place
My personal space, y’all don’t need to to be a part
I’m sorry I don’t wanna link (I don’t wanna link)
And small talk over dinner, I don’t even drink
Can’t guilt trip me, I’m ice cold, roller rink
Nigga-nigga-nigga, read the room
Don’t assume niggas is cool
Stay in your pocket, this is pool
Blah, blah, blah, blah ’bout trauma
You ain’t special, everybody got problems, uh
Sorry I’m not empathetic
Sorry you think I’m pathetic
Sorry I don’t wanna bro down, sorry I don’t know your pronouns
I don’t mean no disrespect, but, damn, we just met, calm the fuck down
Oh, I’m out of touch and I’m a jerk?
A bank account could never match my worth (that nigga gettin’ money, he a dick now)
Sorry Mother Earth, pollutin’ air with chemicals and dirt
These cars ain’t gonna buy and drive theyselves
What the hell you think I work for?
Not to not explore and stay the same
Sorry to the fans who say I changed, ’cause I did
Sorry you don’t know me on a personal level to pinpoint what it is
Sorry to my ancestors (I’m so sorry), I know I’m supposed to fight (I know)
But this ice shinin’ brighter than a black man’s plight, I’ma make it right
In the meantime, I’ll give some advice while these blood diamonds gettin’ cleaned off
Nigga, fuck the price, spend it then, then again
I can’t save niggas, I’m not Superman, but I could try
I’m sorry I’m pretentious
Sorry that the talent, knowledge, passion isn’t missin’
Sorry when I talk my shit and I could back it up with confidence
It get you niggas trippin’, man
Fuck the numbers, fuck a hook
You put me on a stage and I’ll show you the difference
Let me see y’all hit a stage (no, y’all can’t do it)
Let me see y’all write a page (y’all not gon’ do it)
Let me see you make a decision I made
And claim that I don’t know about minimum wage or Section 8
Water in the ketchup bottle to stretch when niggas ate
Gettin’ pressed by niggas hoppin’ gates
Thinkin’ it’s normal ’cause you ain’t supposed to make it past 18
Or escape the Figure 8 cycle
And I promise this is like a diet
I’ma make a way and I did, did
Feel good, work paid off, now we gon’ celebrate
But niggas claim you arrogant
When they can’t relate to moments of feelin’ great
So they aim, duck-duck-duck ’em
Shot right back, buck-buck-buck ’em
Sorry, not sorry (buck ’em, buck ’em)
I got two words, fuck ’em
Okay, cool
And like that
We really mean it this time
I guarantee another era is upon us
So once again, we gone

The Bottom Line

This track might mess with fans’ heads. Some will be like, “Bring back the angst!” Others might be digging this new confidence, even if it’s still rough around the edges. But provoking those reactions? That’s been Tyler’s game from the start. And “Sorry Not Sorry” proves he’s not losing his edge anytime soon.
