Shame Away - By Carroll Bryant

SHAME AWAY - By Carroll Bryant




There's something caught in the back of my throat 
Words I can't seem to swallow 

There's something happening over my head
Thoughts that seem to be too hollow 

Take my shame away by midnight 
Lay the blame all on me if you like 
I got a name that keeps me going strong 
And you stand there with so much need
And broken 

You claim the covers when we're sleeping 
We're not lovers anymore when we weep

I kick myself out of bed when you kick me 
We become whores to our society 

Take my shame away by midnight 
Lay the blame all on me if you like 
I got a name that keeps me going strong 
And you stand there with so much need
And broken 

My dream is your nightmare 
That's what you say 
Every night is a million different faces
Memories you didn't want to see with your own eyes
I warned you about my history 

There's something caught in the back of my throat 
Words I can't seem to swallow 

There's something happening over my head
Thoughts that seem to be too hollow 

Take my shame away by midnight 
Lay the blame all on me if you like 
I got a name that keeps me going strong 
And you stand there with so much need
And broken 

We are so broken
Love is slipping away 
Two people broken
Every night the same thing
The same pain

Loneliness eats them both alive
