The Lemon Twigs – Ashamed


A person does things for no reason
Because a reason is to survive
So since there’s no reason to survive
A person should do nothing, oh

But you feel that you should do something
Because you only have this one life
So you talk with the other people
But you can never do it right

So you’re ashamed
On the ballroom floor, she’s ashamed
She can’t take it anymore
I’m ashamed because I said something
Something I did not mean

When a little brother and sister
Make it with each other
And the family lose their minds
Well, don’t you think they have no right?

Because little Tom and Jane wanna do something
They only have this one life
So they make it with each other
Just to make it through the night

They’re not ashamed
On the ballroom floor, ashamed
Can’t take it anymore
Ashamed ’cause they did something
Something they really mean

She was older now, so the memories came flooding back
And she threw up all of that cognac
She knew that she loved no other
And she knew that she had the right

The right to love and to be loved in one’s life
The right to feel his body hold her tight
I love him, I love him
No longer would she fight, surrender to the night

And I am not ashamed
On the ballroom floor, ashamed
I just can’t take it anymore
I’m ashamed because I said something
Always doing something
I really didn’t mean to
