"Show Me A Little Shame" as written by and Ben Harper....
You, you've been looking at me just a little too long, now I can never look the same
Blindness and kindness, there's no difference in the two when I can no longer
See the good in you

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame

Now 'cause I'm, I'm a gentleman, lookin' for a gentlewomen, so-called ladies
Keep breakin my heart
Show me a house, show me a home, show me how it could all fall apart

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame

Cause now I wake up in the morning more tired than before I slept
I get through crying and I'm sadder then before I wept
I get through thinking and the thoughts have left my head
I get through speaking and I can't remember not a word that I said

You change your mind so many times, I wonder if you have a mind at all
And I'd rather be by myself than to have your lonesome company come to call

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame

    General CommentThis song makes me think of the proverbial "one that got away" When I hear this song, I get filled with self-recrmination. I was wrong, but never said so to him.

    General Commentit reminds me of a relationship which ends because the girl doesn't love him anymore and he askes himself : "does she have any shame for quitting the relationship. because he is the best for her and she doesn't see it"
