Ashamed

Lyrics

I know there’s something that you’re dying to tell me
I hope it’s not about the truth you love me

Make sure no-one finds out
Tell me all about it
Don’t keep it to yourself
Cause I can’t bare the thought
Of never hear me crying
Cause I know you’re crying
Don’t you want me? Cause I need you so

I know that you’re ashamed
So emotional that it kills you
Don’t you know that you’re ashamed?
So emotional that it kills you

There’s always something that makes you guilty
I’m sure there’s something that you’re dying to tell me

Make sure no-one finds out
Tell me all about it
Don’t keep it to yourself
Cause I can’t bare the thought
Of never hear me crying
Cause I know you’re crying
Doesn’t matter ‘cause it makes you so

Don’t you know that you’re ashamed
So emotional that it kills you
Don’t you know that you’re ashamed
So emotional that it kills you

People's comments

Lynds: Love the lyrics to this one...get fantastic images from it like ´don´t keep it to yourself cos I can beg for more´ :)
holyday: cool song, with a very distorded guitar...
Cuttoth: The bass sounds like a bass line you get on Road Rash...... Made me laugh... One of my favourites... It´s kinda manic, an explosion of madness. And the outro riff that they´ve stuck on the end of Showbiz when they play it live.... It works sweetly with both songs.
cross: is it just me or does this song make you think of sex cults?
nuria: it isn´t just you!! me too!
cross: yeah! i think that its the lines ´make sure no one finds out, tell me all about it, dont keep it too yourself´ just makes me think about fetishism. this is the song im gonna play when i own a fetish nightclub
dommi: one of my fav´s... :D
Chriswok: damn, that is some high fretting at the beginning ouch... but i love this song too :D
sgroey: yeah, this song is astoundingly ace, i cant tell wtf the words are but its got a great rhythm, the whole ´once you pop you cant stop´ cos once i start listening to this song i just hafta hear it all the way through... ive made up my own lyrics to it now anyway, so it dont matter what they really are :)
