"Shame" as written by and Robert Peter Williams Gary Barlow....
Straight through you
I burn, I burn
My tongue rhymes one thing, for eager ears to hold on to
You know I'll lie again
You know I'll try again
My words, ripping, tearing, straight through you

[Chorus]
I, I turn my back on you and I will, I will, I will shame you, shame you
I, I've got no time for you and I will, I will, I will shame you, shame you

I burn, I burn
Let me touch you, let me get inside you
All I feel, I can make it feel all so real
You know I'll lie again
You know I'll try again
My words, ripping, tearing, straight through you

[Chorus]

No, don't you speak my name
Don't you speak my name, I'm pain
(Don't you speak my name, don't you speak my name)

I, I turn my back on you and I will, I will shame you, shame you
And I, won't hold against you if you never, never, never speak my name again

[Chorus]

Don't you speak my name, I will shame you, shame you

    General CommentI believe it's about a relationship where he's afraid of hurting the woman with lies, but he promises to try again. He's afraid he will let her down and shame her.
