"Shameless" as written by and John / Lawler....
Well there's nothing more to add, before I leave
This thing of ours is dead, but don't we grieve
Is it me, or are they younger every night?
Just because they can, doesn't make it alright

And I'm hanging by my teeth
Waiting on quick relief
Well the kids don't sleep for days
I could die in a hundred odd ways

I'm so sick of hearing
That enough of this has died
But don't tell me
You could do it if you tried
Well it's a shame or a sham
He's half as old as I am
Don't tell me
He could look good if he tried

Well he terrifies the life out of me
It's really such a lazy way to be
Hiding in the bedroom, climbing up the walls
You've gotta kick it out of me gently, 'til he
Begs and pleads and crawls

I'm so sick of hearing
How your love for this has died
But don't tell me
You could do it if you tried
Well it's a shame and a sham
He's half as old as I am
Don't tell me
He could look good if he tried

I'm so sick of hearing
How your love for this has died
But don't tell me
You could do it if you tried
Well it's a shame or a sham
He's half as old as I am
Don't tell me
He could look good if he tried

Won't you make sure of my mother?
Guessed half my weight in gold
Tell her I just did
What I was told
Grab your expensive coat
And bury it inside
But don't tell me
You could do it
If you tried

    General CommentThis is basically Jon looking around and seeing all the other bands being half his age and thinking how ridiculous it is.
    He's also reminding himself how much he loves what he does. On a US tour last year (?) it became too much and he jumped on a plane and went on holiday with his girlfriend, Heather (aka Chelsea Dagger), who is now his wife. He's yelling at himself for ever complaining about his life. "I'm so sick of hearing how your love for this has died."

    General CommentAnother stab at the scene today. All youngsters, out all the time, getting on with the current 'in-thing', whatever that is........it's fun for a while, but you'd rather be considered seriously, for the long haul. The music business corrupts, mate.
