"Shameless" as written by and Billy Joel....
Well I'm shameless when it comes to loving you
I'd do anything you want me to
I'd do anything at all

And I'm standing here for all the world to see
There ain't that much left of me
That has very far to fall

You know I'm not a man who has ever been
Insecure about the world I've been living in
I don't break easy, I have my pride
But if you need to be satisfied

I'm shameless, baby I don't have a prayer
Anytime I see you standing there
I go down upon my knees

And I'm changing, I swore I'd never compromise
But you convinced me otherwise
I'll do anything you please

You see in all my life I've never found
What I couldn't resist, what I couldn't turn down
I could walk away from anyone I ever knew
But I can't walk away from you

I have never let anything have this much
Control over me
Cause I worked too hard to call my life my own
Yes I made myself a world
And it worked so perfectly
But it's your world now, I can't refuse
I never had so much to lose
I'm shameless, shameless

You know it should be easy for a man who's strong
To say he's sorry or admit when he's wrong
I've never lost anything I ever missed
But I've never been in love like this

It's out of my hands

I'm shameless, I don't have the power now
But I don't want it anyhow
So I've got to let it go

I'm shameless, shameless as a man can be
You can make a total fool of me
I just wanted you to know

I am shameless
Shameless
Shameless

    General CommentThis is one amazing song, to me its where you find that right girl and he would do anything at all to keep her. There is this girl that I like and I play the song when she is over, whether with her friends or alone, and I dont think she is picking up on it. hehe.

    General CommentThis is a great song- Billy should have released it as a single instead of giving Garth Brooks a #1 hit with it! lol This song is about a woman that he likes more than she probably likes him back (which of course gives her all the control). He doesn't like feeling out of control because he's used to having power in everything else in his life. He can usually control the outcome, but not with her. ("It's out of my hands.") But he decides that she is worth the risk.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I thought it was incredibly stupid, because I would have never let myself end up like this. About a year later, I heard it again, and it felt like I had written the lyrics myself. Strange how your thoughts can change about somethin, eh?

    General CommentThis song is about Billy Joel's daughter or children in general. When one becomes a father....it is unbelievable the control children have in your life

    "I have never let anything have this much
    Control over me
    Cause I worked too hard to call my life my own
    Yes I made myself a world
    And it worked so perfectly
    But it's your world now, I can't refuse
    I never had so much to lose"

    Women may come an go but Children are forever. Speaking from experience this is exactly how I feel about my little boy.
