I fear, my dear
We've forgotten the things strangers do
If we could look back to the terrible thrill that we knew
Am I imagining a world without you?

Must we be shamed into love?

What can I say?
Will you pardon my stupid embrace?
Sometimes I'm desperate while you're wiping
The smile from your face am I surrendering, or am I replaced?

Must we be shamed into love?

Shamed into love, you're once a fool for having it
Twice for letting it go, somewhere, my love
There's a feeling deep inside of me
That I can't let go, oh, you'll never know

But then, my darling, I've forbidden myself to confess
I've looked around now but I always return to your face
In a world where everything I once cursed, I bless
It must be you who shamed me into love

Must we be shamed into love?
