Lyrics

Well there's three versions of this story [Robbie Williams]
Mine, yours and then the truth [Robbie Williams]
And we can put it down to [Gary Barlow]
Circumstance, our childhood, then our youth [Gary Barlow]

Out of some sentimental gain [Robbie Williams]
I wanted you to feel my pain [Robbie Williams]
But it came back return to sender [Robbie Williams]
I read your mind and tried to call [Gary Barlow]
My tears could fill the Albert Hall [Gary Barlow]
Is this the sound of sweet surrender [Gary Barlow]

What a shame we never listened [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
I told you through the television [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
And all that went away was the price we paid [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
People spend a lifetime this way [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Oh what a shame [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]

So I got busy throwing [Robbie Williams]
Everybody underneath the bus [Robbie Williams]
And with your poster 30 foot high [Gary Barlow]
At the back of Toys-R-Us [Gary Barlow]

I wrote a letter in my mind [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
But the words were so unkind [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
About a man I can't remember [Robbie Williams]
I don't recall the reasons why [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
I must have meant them at the time [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Is this the sound of sweet surrender? [Gary Barlow]

What a shame we never listened [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
I told you through the television [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
And all that went away was the price we paid [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
People spend a lifetime this way [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
And that's how they stay [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Oh what a shame [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]

Words come easy, when they're true [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Words come easy, when they're true [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]

So I got busy throwing [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Everybody underneath the bus [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
And with your poster 30 foot high [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
At the back of Toys-R-Us [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Now we can put it down to [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
Circumstance, our childhood then our youth [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]

What a shame we never listened [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
I told you through the television [Robbie Williams]
And all that went away was the price we paid [Robbie Williams]
People spend a lifetime this way [Robbie Williams]
And that's how they stay [Robbie Williams]

People spend a lifetime this way [Gary Barlow]
Oh what a shame [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]
What a shame [Robbie Williams & Gary Barlow]

Such a shame [Robbie Williams]
What a shame [Gary Barlow]
Pityful a shame [Robbie Williams]
Real shame [Gary Barlow]
About old stuff [Robbie Williams]
Shame [Gary Barlow]
