​Such a Shame

This song is by The Thorns and appears on the album The Thorns (2003).

She sleeps alone
Without her clothes on,
While I dream of how
Things could have been.
She doesn't want me, (She doesn't want me,)
And I don't know why. (and I don't know why.)
I left a message (I left a message)
In the midnight sky, (in the midnight sky,)
But now I know
She'll never find it.

Maybe I'll see (Maybe I'll see)
Tomorrow; (tomorrow;)
But for tonight, (But for tonight,)
I know I'm blind. (I know I'm blind.)

It's such a shame
(To want you)
When you can't
(Belong to)
Someone else -- (Someone else --)
Such a shame. (Such a shame.)
Aaaa-ah... (Aaaa-ah...)

You may be wrong
And I'm not crazy,
Though I admit (Though I admit)
That I'm confused. (that I'm confused.)
I waited patiently; (I waited patiently;)
You walked on by. (you walked on by.)
I had to have you; (I had to have you;)
Now I want to die. (now I want to die.)
So there's no way
To justify it.

Maybe I'll see (Maybe I'll see)
Tomorrow; (tomorrow;)
But for tonight, (But for tonight,)
I know I'm blind. (I know I'm blind.)

It's such a shame
(To want you)
When you can't
(Belong to)
Someone else -- (Someone else --)
Such a shame. (Such a shame.)
Aaaa-ah... (Aaaa-ah...)
Aaa-a-a-a-ah... (Ah...)
Aaa-a-ooh... (Aaaa-ah...)

Such a shame
When you can't
(Belong to)
Someone else -- (Someone else --)
(Such a shame.)

It's such a shame
(To want you)
When you can't
(Belong to)
Someone else -- (Someone else --)
Such a shame (Such a shame)
(To want you)
When you can't
(Belong to)
Someone else -- (Someone else --)
Such a shame. (Such a shame.)
Aaaa-ah... (Aaaa-ah...)
