"Shame On Me" as written by Ken Block, Jeff Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Carter Newell and Mark E. Trojanowski....
It's over and I'm overwhelmed
I'm emptied out like a dusty shelf
You buried me, and I'm covered in shame
I'm here but you look right through me

Just hear me out for what it's worth
You still rip my breath away
I've come around
I know you've heard it before
And again and again

[Chorus]
Shame on me shame on me
It's bittersweet but I'm so sorry
It took so long but you believed
(I'm sorry it took so long)
Shame on me, shame on me
Because you're every questions answer
Shame on me

So clever, but I tripped somehow
I never guessed you could knock me down
I am just a bit undone
Displaced and burned like fire

Just hear me out for what it's worth
You still rip my breath away
I've come around
I know you've heard it before
And again and again

[Chorus]

I didn't get it I never wanted to
My self destructive attitude said
What did you want
And why would you want it at all?
But you never went away

You faded out but it took so long
It's tainted
How could I let this slip away from me
For a wondering Jones
I'm here but you look right through me

[Chorus]

    General Commenta bad relationship with someone. you knew they'd end up hurting you but you were too blind and ignorant to do anything about it. this song is about feeling ashamed of the mistakes you've made and wanting some words of comfort, "I'm here but you look right through me"
