"It's A Shame" as written by and Will Hoge....
How would this be if I was alone tonight
Maybe then my love everything would turn out right
I wish that this were easy, but you know that it never is
It seems like hearts get broken during things like this

And if you see her walking down along these streets
Her body softly swaying to her heart's broken beats
And if you see her tell her that I'm doing fine
And tell her if she feels like talking, she should call me sometime

And I can't fight it anymore
I can't stop it once it starts

Well it's a shame babe
Well it's a shame babe
Well it's a shame babe
The way we've torn it all apart

And if you see her let her know I wish her well
And if things will get much better tell her only time will tell
Cause if she's lonely well I'm alright
Cause you know
When it falls down I'll be there to pick it up one more time

    General Commentthe song to me is about a break up. the man has pretty much moved on "how would this be if I were alone tonight" so he has someone else but if he WAS alone it would be a little easier for them to talk again "everything would turn out right" but he still cares about the girl saying "if you see her she should call me sometime"
    Clearly they are broken up because hes saying what a shame the breakup is but hes a strong guy and hes trying to tell the girl to be strong too

    General Commenti can't believe NO ONE has commented on this song!
    i love it! the lyrics are great & the vocals are really different. or alteast i think so.

    but i think this song is about a guy thinking about what it would be like if he broke up with her girlfriend and he does and it breaks her heart, but then he kind of starts to think he's made a mistake and tells his friends to tell her to call him up sometime.

    "well it's a shame babe
    the way we've torn it all apart."

    amazing!
