It's a Shame Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Lately I've been thinking about the past
How there is no holding back
No point in wasting sorrow
On things that won't be here tomorrow
Verse 2
But you and I well, we don't need to speak
It's the secret that we keep
Out of view and out of sight
Just say when and we'll say goodnight
Verse 3
Tell me it's okay
To live life this way
Sometimes I want you to stay
I know it's a shame
Verse 4
I've spent so much of my time
Going out of my mind
Trying so hard to be of use
But what you cannot gain you lose
Verse 5
In L.A., the sun's almost too bright
I cannot get it right
The emptiness I feel
And now none of it seems real
Verse 6
Maybe it's alright
If I just spend the night
Sometimes I just can't bear to walk away
I know it's a shame
Verse 7
Who have I become?
Who will I be
Come tomorrow?
Verse 8
Tell me it's okay
If I ask you to stay
Sometimes the night cuts through me like a knife
I know it's a shame
I know it's a shame
I know it's a shame
