  • How is it that two people
    Who laughed together and loved together
    Sometimes end up far apart?
    (Tell me how is it?)

    And how is it that two people
    Who cry together, wanna die together
    Sometimes end up with a broken heart?

    Isn't it a shame
    (Isn't it a shame, my friend)
    Sometimes such a love?
    (Sometimes such a love such as this must end)
    Isn't it a shame
    (Isn't it a shame, you have to laugh before you cry)

    And how is it that two people
    Who cling together wanna dream, dream together
    (Cling together wanna have a little dream together)
    Oh, they end up alone?
    (Tell me how is it?)

    And how is it that two people
    Who plan together, make a little life together
    Sometimes end up along that road?

    Isn't it a shame?
    (Isn't it a shame, my friend?)
    Sometimes such a love
    (Love must end)

    Isn't it a shame?
    (You have to laugh before you)
    Isn't it a shame that such a love must leave?

    Isn't it a shame?
    Sometimes such a love
    Isn't it a shame?
    Isn't it a shame that such a love must leave?

    Isn't it a shame?
    Sometimes such a love
    Isn't it a shame?
