The Story Behind "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word"
The title of the song, always the starting point for Bernie, came to his mind after hearing an Elton tune on the piano: "Elton was tinkling on the piano and I just listened for a while" explained then the lyricist. "Finally I thought of the title line and went home and completed the song".
The song expressed he's feelings when he was through an emotional upheaval coping with his marriage separation and the alcoholism.
