#RhythmandBluesVariety Hour: Another Shame

This is included in the collection Everything But the Kitchen Sink

Obsessive lust is a bitch. I never want to feel that way about anyone again. But damn if it wasn’t inspiring.

Another Shame Written 5/10/06

Now what have all my efforts been for

If I’m gonna go running back to your door

Cause I’m a fool for you, you’re not a fool for me

And I don’t understand what can possibly result from this

This shit that I put myself through

Damn it I was supposed to be through

A long time ago

 

I rehabbed my senses

Built my defenses

Contemplated my reasons for having this disease

And tried to put you behind me

Tried to redefine me

But I couldn’t shake the stigmata of you off my very being

And I’m still blind for you while I’m very much seeing

 

That you still got me by the reins

You’re back to driving me insane

And you know it’s a shame

 

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I keep running back to you

Why do I do what I do

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I have such a hold

And I can’t let go

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I want you back after all this time

That by denying you I was living a lie

And you know

You know it’s a shame

 

What has all my misery been for

Now that you’re back I yearn for you even more

I hate how I run back into your arms

I think you’re causing my sanity some harm-

Ful intentions

Got me inventing new ways to get out

Damn it I want to get out

Away from you

 

I’m your slave

Can’t change my ways

Hypnotized by your eyes

And I’ve failed to realize

The shit that happened to make me leave

Make me grieve

Over this affair that will never die

I can’t leave you alone, why do I even try

 

And yes you’ve still got me by the reins

Back to the pleasure of driving me insane

And you know it’s a shame

 

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I keep running back to you

Why do I do what I do

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I have such a hold

And I can’t let go

(Shame, shame, shame)

That I want you back after all this time

That by denying you I was living a lie

And you know

You know it’s a shame
