"Such a shame" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
It's such a shame I've met you
Now, when it's all too late
Everything I had to give
I've already given away.

My heart is gone.
My body's is gone.
It's just the ghost you see
The ghost of someone you would like
Someone I used to be

So, take this song
It's all I've got
That wasn't played before
The rest is stained,
Worn out, gone astray.
I've played it down to the bone

In your eyes there's a hunger
I cannot satisfy
I'll never become your mistress cause
I've been everyone else's wife

My heart is gone.
My body's gone.
I traded them so low
Just for a few drops of passion
Just for some scraps of love

So, take this song
It's all I've got
That wasn't played before
The rest is stained
Worn out, gone astray
I've played it down to the bone

So, take this song
It's all I've got
I hope you understand
The rest is stained
Worn out, gone astray

It's such a shame I've met you
Now, when it's all to late
If only I never met you
I wouldn't mind the waste.

    General CommentI love this song...it's quite self-explinatory, though...the woman met this really amazing guy and they may have fallen in love but she doesn't think she deserves to be with him as she's probably vulnerable because of all her previous relationships and her life's experiences...So she just thinks of herself as a human wreck and feels as if she has nothing left to give o the other person...so she let him go...she thinks she's so generous and thoughtful but in fact she's just afraid of being hurt again...
