i’m not ashamed lyrics – big country

we all make our plans
we all have our choices
try on different faces
talk in other voices
i said a lot of things
that never let me sleep
made promises i really meant to keep

i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i took the blame when i could have run
i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i know i stayed when i could have gone
i don’t expect it to be easy for me

we’re tied together by a simple little pledge
before we know the trust it takes
to walk up to that edge
we build a house of cards
where the wind has always blown
we build our little garden
on a bed of sand and stone

it took too long for me to be who i am
maybe it’s enough for me to be it when i can

i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i took the blame when i could have run
i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i know i stayed when i could have gone

our little houses where the wind has always blown
our little garden – on a bed of sand and stone

we drift along in quiet waters on the tide
rise and fall in rhythm – almost satisfied
we let ourselves be down – we let ourselves be used
i only ever wanted to be taken in by you

it took too long for me to be who i am
maybe it’s enough for me to be it when i can

i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i took the blame when i could have run
i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i know i stayed when i could have gone

i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i took the blame when i could have run
i’m not ashamed of the things i’ve done
i know i stayed when i could have gone

i don’t expect it to be easy for me
