About Shame

"Shame" is a song by all-female German trio Monrose, recorded for the band's debut studio album Temptation (2006). It was written by Christian Ballard, Tim Hawes, Pete Kirtley and Andrew Murray, while joint production was helmed by British production teams Jiant and Snowflakers. Set against a heavy drum pattern and computerized synths sounds, "Shame" is a piano ballad arranged as a mid-tempo with pop and R&B influences. The song's lyrics are about the breakdown of a relationship with a man, with the protagonist blaming her own mistakes, including her ongoing call for independence, for their separation. The song was released as the band's debut single on December 1, 2006 in German-speaking Europe, following the trio's formation on the fifth series finale of the reality talent contest Popstars two weeks prior. A smash hit, it debuted and peaked at number one in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, where it became one of the best-selling singles of the year, resulting in a sales total of 200,000 copies Europe-wide, and the most-downloaded track since the introduction of the legal digital download charts in Germany in 2004. "Shame" also reached the top ten on the official airplay charts in the Czech Republic and Slovenia, and on a composite European Hot 100 Singles chart respectively.

Our final conversation
It lies heavy on my mind
And although we couldn't say it
I think we know we can't go back this time
Your love and desperation
Is the writing on the wall
And will all the light start flashing?
Or is this the final curtain call?

It's such a shame, it's such a shame (ah)
Don't walk away, don't walk away (ah)
All this time I thought I knew myself
But once again I bury my head in shame

Nothing lasts forever
A flower always dies
I never felt the beauty
Why can't I see through other people's eyes?

It's such a shame, it's such a shame (ah)
Don't walk away, don't walk away (ah)
All this time I thought I knew myself
But once again I bury my head in shame

I paid the price for all mistakes (ah)
And when love ends new life begins (ah)
My independence always nails me to the floor
And it leaves me wanting more
It leaves me wanting more

I've got everything
A girl could ever need
So why do I still feel
Like my life's so incomplete
You made me beautiful
You brought me to my knees
So please don't go
Don't take the missing piece

It's such a shame, it's such a shame (ah)
Don't walk away, don't walk away (ah)
All this time I thought I knew myself
But once again I bury my head in shame

It's such a shame, it's such a shame (ah)
Don't walk away, don't walk away (no, oh) (ah)
All this time I thought I knew myself
But once again (once gain) 
I bury my head in shame

In shame
Shame
