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

And I'm standing
Here for all the world to see,
Oh, baby that's what's left of me,
I don't have very far to fall

You know now I'm not a man who's 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
Honey, I don't have a prayer
Every time I see you standing there
I go down upon my knees

And I'm changing,
Swore I'd never compromise,
Oh, but you convinced me otherwise
I'll do anything you need

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 had anything have this much control on me
I've worked too hard to call my life my own
And I've made myself a world, and it's worked so perfectly,
But it sure won't now, I can't refuse,
I've never had so much to lose
And I'm 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,
I don't want it anyhow,
So I gotta let it go

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

I just wanted you to know
Oh I'm shameless

I'm down on my knees
Shameless

You said
I feel shameless

    My InterpretationThis song is actually about performing oral sex on a woman.

    Just listen... It's innuendo!

    "Well I'm shamemeless when it comes to loving you
    I'll do anything you want me to
    I'll do anything at all"

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

    "I'm shameless, oh honey I don't have a prayer
    Every time I see you standin' there
    I go down upon my knees"

    He'll do anything including the deed that few men are willingly do... Go down upon his knees!

    He doesn't have the power now... She's got the P**** Power! P**** CONTROL! Word!

    Oooh and yeah he's totally in love with her that he's just shameless in admitting it *WEG*

    General Commentokay heres a lil fun game for you!! replace the word "shameless" with "shaving" its so so so so so funny!

    EXAMPLE: I don't break easy I have my pride
    But if you need to be satisfied I'm shaving, oh honey I don't have a prayer. EXAMPLE 2:But it's your world now I can't refuse I've never had so much to lose Oh I'm shaving EXAMPLE 3:

    General Commenti can't believe this doesnt have a million pages of comments. its like he's finally given in to love and theres no turning back, this is who he's supposed to be with and no one else will do!! so touching... the guitar sounds really good in it too.
