He did say Sorry.

DH - TPTThe scene changed

Im sorry.

Im not interested.

Im sorry!

Save your breath.

It was nighttime. Lily, who was wearing a dressing gown, stood with her arms folded in front of the portrait of the Fat Lady, at the entrance to Gryffindor Tower.

I only came out because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here.

I was. I would have done. I never meant to call you Mudblood, it just ---
Yes, that was my point. He never meant to call Lily a Mudblood. He did not say,
'I would never call anybody a Mudblood. I was very upset.'

That was where he messed up IMO. Also when Snape says his famous
'Always' accompanied with his Patronus, I think it is made very clear that his only motive for his actions was his feelings for Lily. For some this is an entirely worthwhile motive, but I feel differently. For me it is a selfish motive that serves his feelings alone. I know I'm being tough on him but I think he's just not a nice man. He was brave but so was Macbeth.
