What A Shame

I watched it all up close
I knew him more than most
I saw a side of him, he never showed
Full of sympathy for a world that
Wouldn’t let him be

That’s the man he was
Have you heard enough?

What a shame, what a shame
To judge a life that you can’t change
The choir sings, the church bells ring
So, won’t you give this man his wings?
What a shame, to have to beg you to
See we’re not all the same
What a shame
