Shame

Song Lyrics

Why do you want to waste your life away
It’s a shame

It’s a shame
It’s a shame
Anyone can learn to fly
Keep your head up
Keep your head held high
Anyone can learn to soar
Get yourself up
Coz you deserve more

Hold on to your heart
You can make a brand new start
Just believe in your dreams
Make yourself feel loved and be happy

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

Anyone can learn to fly
Keep your head up
Keep your head held high
Anyone can learn to soar
Get yourself up
Coz you deserve more

Hold on to your heart
You can make a brand new start
Just believe in your dreams
Make yourself feel loved and be happy

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)

All dressed up
And nowhere to go
So much to give
So little to show
For yourself

It’s your life
You get to do your tries
But can’t be afraid to fall
So much to give
And still you try to hide
You don’t have to do it all

It’s a shame (just a little bit)
(just a little bit, just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)
(just a little bit, just a little bit)

Hold on to your heart
You can make a brand new start
Just believe in your dreams
Make yourself feel loved and be happy

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

All dressed up
And nowhere to go
So much to give
So little to show
For yourself

It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)
It’s a shame (just a little bit)

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got noone to blame

All dressed up
And nowhere to go
So much to give
So little to show
For yourself

It’s a shame
The way you live your life
It’s a shame
And you got no one to blame
