Hayes Carll – It's A Shame lyrics

The time has come, there is no second chance
We've been drifting on an empty aching sea
You were the girl I never knew I wanted
I was the boy you hoped you'd never see


And it's a shame that we ain't lovers
We could have been somethin' so big and grand
Just kissin' for hours underneath that sweet magnolia
Beggin' for answers, tryin' to make a stand

Been burnin' up the hours, talkin' to the midnight
Just dreamin' of ways I could hold you next to me
But maybe it just wasn't meant, all things have a reason
Maybe our hearts were just to careless and free


There was a time, when you would have had me
There was a time I could have had you
But it's too late, another path has come and gone again
I'm at the back door with a broken window view thinkin'


I'm tired of writin' but I can't put down my pen
It's too late now to talk or turn back
So just hold on, cause baby here we go again
Headin' the wrong way down that one way track
