"Shame" as written by and Rob / Thomas....
I took a walk for the very first time
On the dark side of the dance floor
Lit a match just to heat things up
But I got more than I bargained for

Mixed drinks mixed feelings of elation
I should have known it was a one night invitation

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
You walk around with my heart on your sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now our time ran out

I took an oath but I'm giving it up
You didn't have to see things my way
Nothing more than a casual ****
Isn't that just how we operate?

Let's drink to feelings of temptation
You and I we're an overnight sensation

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
I walk around with your heart on my sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now our time ran out

Outside the brake light's started to dim
I feel the tension that's been pulling us in
And then we do it again so we can feel all right
Falling in love for the night

Don't sweat it forget it everything is a okay
Just let it go then it's off to find another face
I'll make you come just to watch you leave
You walk around with my heart on your sleeve
Don't sweat it it's over now

Our time ran out our time ran out
Our time ran out our time ran out
Our time ran out

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song.
    the music video is perfect. I can definitely relate to the man trying to give out his balloons. he walks all over but nobody wants them, they just think he's got some weird motive and they either turn him down or run away.

    General CommentDefinitely for those rainy days when the daily grind of same shit/different day wears you down to tears or worse; then its time for Low, off in a dark corner strumming along with the fewest chords possible, not swaggering, not tooting their horn- just spare, direct, honest, & a comforting shoulder, disarming humbleness.
    Musical simplicity that shouldn't work so well but does?
    Maybe i'm getting it wrong, I haven't made it through most of their material yet,even if the songs I have heard impressed me a lot & minimalist sounds (in what world is this 'rock'?) are often very soothing & hypnotic
