Shame on Me Lyrics

From: Throne EP
Release Date: October 1, 2014

Let’s be honest:
You don’t know me at all.
And it was never your intention
To let yourself fall
For someone like me.

So we talked for a while,
You said all the right things.
Substance may be expensive,
But yeah, talk is cheap.
And I told myself
I’d be fine
If and when you changed your mind.

Well shame on me,
But that’s okay.
We’ll never speak again anyway.
So why can’t I forget you,
Pretend I never met you?
Shame on me,
But I’ll be fine.
Just need to get you off my mind.
I really never knew you
And I don’t think I want to anymore.

It’s just the letdown.
It’s weighing on me.
Turns out you’re everything
They all told me you’d be.
Guess it’s my fault
For setting my hopes up
Half aware that they would fall.

Well shame on me,
But that’s okay.
We’ll never speak again anyway.
So why can’t I forget you,
Pretend I never met you?
Shame on me,
But I’ll be fine.
Just need to get you off my mind.
I really never knew you
And I don’t think I want to anymore.

Now you treat me
Like I don’t even exist.
I’m just a name you’re gonna add
At the end of your list
Of the ones who didn’t know
They should’ve run
And the ones who did but not fast enough
Hope’s a dangerous chance I always take

Well shame on me,
But that’s okay.
We’ll never speak again anyway.
So why can’t I forget you,
Pretend I never met you?
Shame on me,
But I’ll be fine.
Just need to get you off my mind.
I really never knew you,
But I can see right through you.
I really never knew you,
And I don’t even want to anymore.
