such a shame lyrics – black stone cherry

“such a shame”

another late night on the 14th in maine
should daddy’s little girl be out this late?
she takes off her clothes, and closes her eyes
tears start to fall, as she looks at her life

it wasn’t her fault, that you weren’t around
to keep her away from the things that she found
god only knows, what else could go wrong?
somebody come and take this little girl home

[chorus]
they found her body, face down dead in the rain – such a shame (shame)
such a pretty face, never should have felt this pain – who’s to blame?
such a shame

every young girl in this world needs love
somebody to hold so they don’t give up
it’s our mothers and daughters and sisters, you see
when your angel cries, then you’ll see what i mean

it wasn’t her fault, that you weren’t around
to keep her away from the things that she found
god only knows, what else could go wrong?
somebody come and take this little girl home

[chorus]
they found her body, face down dead in the rain – such a shame (shame)
such a pretty face, never should have felt this pain – who’s to blame?
such a shame

there’s a place in heaven for every little girl
lord, that gets taken, in this dirty world!

[chorus]
they found her body, face down dead in the rain – such a shame (shame)
such a pretty face, never should have felt this pain

such a shame
