"It's A Shame" as written by and Ryan Tedder....
Oh I tried to get to you
Pushed in the end to break me through
I tried with all I had
You left me standing empty handed

Well time has passed
Nothing ever lasts

So now you confess that you need me
And now you release what you're feeling
But how is this supposed to ever be the same

Oh it's a shame
It's a shame
Oh it's a shame
Oh it's a shame
Yeah

You got the best of me
Got me a reason
Got me on my knees, yeah
My love I lost my pride
Searching for something I couldn't find

Well the time that passed has brought a change of heart

And now you confess that you need me
And now you release what you're feeling
But how is this supposed to ever be the same

Oh it's a shame
It's a shame
Oh it's a shame
You know it's a shame
Yeah

Ooh, ooh

Well you got the best of me
I said love got the best of me
Saying you got the best of me
And I'm afraid it will never be the same

It's a shame
It's a shame
Oh it's a shame
You know it's a shame, oh
It's a shame
It's a shame
Oh it's a shame
You know it's a shame, oh
Yeah

Well you got the best of me
Ooh

    General Commentcan't believe i'm the first to post on this beautiful song! i think he is talking about a tough breakup. he was the one who got dumped and it took him a while to get over it because the girl was someone he truly loved. with time, he eventually is able to move on...but soon enough the girl is back in his life asking to get back together. he's torn about what he should do. he still loves her so much, but at the same time, he thinks it was unfair of her to leave him, break his heart, and then expect him to return.

    General CommentI think the song goes like this:

    So now you confess that you need me
    And now more or less what you're feeling
    But how is this suppossed to be the same?
    It's a shame
