"Shame On Me" lyrics - SISTER HAZEL

"Shame On Me"
(Ken Block / Andrew Copeland / Ryan Newell)

It's over, and I'm overwhelmed.
I'm emptied out like a dusty shelf.
You buried me, and I'm covered in shame.
I'm here but you look right through me.

Just hear me out for what it's worth.
You still take my breath away.
I've come around.
I know you've heard it before
And again and again.

Shame on me, shame on me.
It's bittersweet, but I'm so sorry,
It took so long, but you believed.
(I'm sorry it took so long.)
Shame on me, shame on me.
'Cause you're every question's answer
Shame on me.

So clever, but I tripped somehow.
I never guessed you could knock me down.
I am, just a bit undone,
Displaced and I'm burned like fire.

I didn't get it, I never wanted to.
My self-destructive attitude said
What did you want,
And why would you want it at all?
But you never went away.

You faded out, but it took so long
It's tainted, how could I let this
Slip away, from me?
For a wandering jones,
I'm back but you look right through me.
