Lyrics

(shame, shame)
I was a loner unloved
I really didn't need any help at all
(shame, shame)
I really thought I was fine
I was living it up just despite myself
(shame, shame)
I used to wander the streets at midnight
Avoiding any signs of life

(shame, shame)
I used to suffer alone
I really did think it would make me strong
(shame, shame)
I used to write it all down
hoping someone would read it years from now
(shame, shame)
I used to act like I was in a movie,
so mysterious and misunderstood.

(shame, shame)
You started hanging around
I really didn't think I could live it down
(shame, shame)
I tried to play it cool
but every single part of me felt so good
(shame, shame)
You took me someplace I'd never been before
I was a foreigner in your hands

I just couldn't let it go 'til now.

A letter unopened just like a knock on the door.
Do you think you're so special that no one knows what you're for?
Well you can mutter on sweet nothings like you're on the other side of town.

Do you fear the attachment to things that you want?
Do you want to cut off things for fear of their love?
Well you can roll on to the graveyard and let them take you whole.
Or, you can live it up and leave nothing but your bones.

(shame, shame)
I didn't know what to do
I was losing myself turning into you.
(shame, shame)
I was really undone
the life that I lived seemed so useless now.
(shame, shame)
You know you made me do it,
and no I don't regret a thing.
