    Well,it's a lyric of a song so that's it

    The last verse is this:

    "Pains come and go
    But your love don't lie to yourself
    Love never dies
    And I apologize for everything I did"

    Oh, song lyrics -- song lyrics often make no sense at all. Many songwriters care more about syllable counts for each line, and stress patterns of the syllables (to match the music), and about "creating an emotion" than about making sense.

    Even the ones that make sense often don't use normal, correct English sentences.

    It's clearer when you look at the four lines (in post #3). Each line probably has a separate meaning. They make no sense combined.

    "Love never dies and I apologize for everything I did"....

    No. There are song lyrics. This is not a normal English sentence. The "love never dies" and the other part are completely unrelated sentences.

    "I apologize for everything I did." is a normal sentence, using "apologize" correctly.
