Lyrics

SHAME

Written By: Deline Briscoe

SHAME
VERSE 1
Take me away from this pain
I’m crying again
Lost deep inside
I cannot run I cannot hide

Take me away from this pain
Why should I take the blame
For the wrongs that I cannot make right
My memories I’ll try to fight

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away

I hide inside my quilt
Ashamed of all the guilt
My secrets will reveal
And so my lips are sealed

VERSE 2
You are worth more than you’ve been treated
More than you’ve been told
More than you’ve ever believed in
More than your weight in gold

You are worth
Said you are
You should know that you are
Are worth

More than just your name
You are worth more than all the crying
You are worth more than all the
Shame shame Shame Shame

CHORUS
Shame on you for thinki9ng that
I wouldn’t take it back
The innocence you stole from me
Now see the woman I’ve grown to be
I’ve done for myself
Renewed my inner strength and health
I’ve felt the joy that comes with being’ real to me
RPT
I take my body back
And all my fear to
I’ve got control of all that I own and
Now I know
SHAME (Continued)

Why should I take the blame
For the wrongs that I cannot make right
More than you’ve been treated
More more more than you’ve been told oh
More than just your name
More than all the
Shame shame shame

I got a voice
I shall speak
Got something’ to say
And now I will be heard

Shame on you for thinking’ that
I wouldn’t take it back
The innocence you stole from me
Now see the woman I am (PAUSE)
Why should I take the blame

OUTRO
No no no no no
No no no no no
No no no no no
No no no more
What you did to me
How does it feel to know that for so long that you’re the one that took away my dignity
Why should I (Why Should I)
Take the blame, (Take It )
No more….

Shame on you
Shame on you
Shame on you for
thinking think thinking that
Thinkin’ think thinkin’ that
