lyrics

SHAME
Lyrics by Joel Eckels


You wanna make it right, but you won’t
Wanna change your tune, but you don’t
Wanna change the world, but you choke

You wonder why the drugs didn’t help
Or how it just gets loud when you yell
Got to stop lying to your self
You’re the only one who can make it change

Don’t try to tell me (3x)
You ain’t got yourself to blame
For the reason who lost love and the money
Now it’s all gone, but it ain’t so funny
Don’t try to tell me (3x)
You ain’t got no shame

I’ll admit I had a hand in this mess
No angel or saint, I confess
Got to come clean with this
Baby, I’ve done all that I can do
Given up on trying to get through
Never giving up on you
No, I’m never giving up on you, baby.

Don’t try to tell me (3x)
Any more reasons why I shouldn’t put up a fight,
That you’re just doing what’s right
Ain’t so black and white.

Why’s it got to be so tough
How can you say you’ve had enough
How can you walk away, we had love
Oh, when we had love baby

Don’t try to tell me (3x)
You ain’t got no shame
Don’t try to tell me (3x)
You ain’t got yourself to blame
For the reason who lost love and the money
Now it’s all gone, but it ain’t so funny
