Because Of The Shame

Against Me!

We used to get high together,
Instead of getting high alone
I can't remember the last time I saw you
I can't remember the last time we talked
You left home for a fresh start, working
As a waitress down in Bradenton
With my name tattoo'd into your skin...

(Chorus)
Because of the shame
I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely
Can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today,
With tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me,
It was the resemblance you shared...

Don't it feel so detached and unreal?
Don't it seem so far away?
Like the past never happened,
Or like nothings ever changed
With your casket open in front of me,
Your eyes closed and your lips silent
With my name tattoo'd into your skin...

Because of the shame
I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely
Can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today,
With tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me,
It was the resemblance you shared...

I didn't listen to the preacher
I couldn't look your husband in the eyes
I'm not sure what I meant to you then,
So I'm not sure what I owe you now
But if something I said hurt you
I swear it was not my intention
With your name tattoo'd into my skin...(2x)

Because of the shame
I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely
Can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today,
With tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me,
It was the resemblance you shared...
