t.A.T.u.: Gomenasai Meaning
In the light
Wasn't one of a kind
A precious pearl
When I wanted to cry
I couldn't cause I
I know I let you down
Gomenasai till the end
I never needed a...

This song is about reconciliation after a friendship supposedly ended.
The narrator is is apologizing to her friend.
There is nothing suggested in this song to imply a more intimate relationship.
With respect to t.A.T.u the song suggests that neither girls were more than just friends, if that is its subtle meaning.
Obviously though, it's safe to assume it is about friendship.

I think this song is about two friends or possibly even a couple, who are having trouble in their relationship. For the sake of clarity, I'm going to call them a couple, and in this scenario, I think they've most likely broken up. The girl is thinking back on how she gave up something so precious to her, but she didn't realize it at the time. But because she ended things by letting him down, she isn't allowed to be weak, even though she wants to be, and she needs him to help her through it. Gomenasai means "I'm sorry" in Japanese; she's apologizing for what she's putting him through, but she's stopping herself from asking him to take her back because she knows it's entirely her fault.
This can also be applied to the opposite side, as if the guy is the one apologizing, or even seen as just a crumbling friendship.

She gave up or hurt a person very important to her, and wants to apologize for the pain she's caused them.
