Shame On Me

Shame On Me

She was born emerald dancer 
On the wrong side of the tracks 
She left it all behind for another life 
Never ever looking back, can't turn back. 

She might look like you, talk like you, act like you, walk like you 
But you know, yes, you know, she’s living her life in the shadow, in the rain 

She’s so desperate, no one hears her cry 
Who’s to blame? 

They fade away, Then shame on me 
Fade away, Shame on you 

He was tall dark and handsome 
As any man his age 
He never knew a single soul he could believe 
He left the city on a train, for the stage 

He might look like you, talk like you, act like you, walk like you 
But you know, yes, you know, he’s living his life in the shadow, in vain. 

He’s so desolate, no one hears him cry 
Who’s to blame? 

They fade away, Then shame on me 
Fade away, Shame on you 

If your never asking why, someone just like you may end up 
On the other side of life, on the other side of time
