show me a little shame lyrics – 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
