Matchbox Twenty – Shame lyrics

What we learned here is love tastes bitter
When it's gone
Pass yourself forget the light, things look
Dirty when it's on
Funny how it comes to pass, that all the good slips away
And there's no one around you can remember being good to

(chorus 1)
Shame, shouldn't try you, couldn't step by you
And open up more

What we lost here is something better left alone
Second steps have been forgotten, will you tell me how
They go
Set yourself, situate, like a fool try again
There's no one around you can remember being good, for you

(chorus 2)
Shame shouldn't try you, couldn't step by you
And open up more
Shame shouldn't try you, couldn't step by you
And open up more

We never thought wed get so troubled
We could never think that much
It should never get this bad

So let the wind blow ya, across the big floor
But there's no one around who can tell us what were here
Funny in a certain light, how we all look the same
And there's no one in life who can remember
Ever stood
For you, so
