It's A Shame

  • 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

    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

    Tell me it's okay
    To live life this way
    Sometimes I want you to stay
    I know it's a shame

    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

    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

    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

    Who have I become?
    Who will I be
    Come tomorrow?

    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
