Lyrics

WHAT A SHAME

Never having much to say
Making each day for fun
That's how I grew to see the world with you

What have I been thinking of?
Look at my point of view
I didn't want to stop exploring you

What a life, what a pain
Such is life
What A Shame

Living life so suddenly
Making you want to learn
That's what I thought relationships should do

Did I take a rotten turn?
Am I getting what I deserve?
Well I guess I should have been a better girl, oh well

What a life, what a pain
Such is life
What A Shame

Just how far is it from over there to here?
Balancing between your power and your fear?
Just try and picture me standing at your door and tell me now
Why you don't want me anymore?
Tell me now
What A Shame

Don't I get a second chance inventing myself again?
I know I should have been a better girl
