shame lyrics – robbie williams

“shame”
(with gary barlow)

well there’s three versions of this story mine, yours and then the truth
and we can put it down to circ*mstance, our childhood, then our youth
out of some sentimental gain i wanted you to feel my pain, but it came back return to sender
i read your mind and tried to call, my tears could fill the albert hall, is this the sound of sweet surrender?

what a shame we never listened
i told you through the television
and all that went away was the price we paid
people spend a lifetime this way
oh what a shame.

so i got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
and with your poster 30 foot high at the back of toys-r-us
i wrote a letter in my mind, but the words were so unkind, about a man i can’t remember
i don’t recall the reasons why, i must have meant them at the time, is this the sound of sweet surrender?

what a shame we never listened
i told you through the television
and all that went away was the price we paid
people spend a lifetime this way
and that’s how they stay
oh what a shame.

words come easy, when they’re true
words come easy, when they’re true

so i got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
and with your poster 30 foot high at the back of toys-r-us
now we can put it down to circ*mstance, our childhood then our youth.

what a shame we never listened
i told you through the television
and all that went away was the price we paid
people spend a lifetime this way
and that’s how they stay
oh what a shame.

people spend a lifetime this way
oh what a shame
such a shame, what a shame
