Track Name: Show Me A Little Shame
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
Track Name: Empty Walls
The day after you left,
Took all the pictures off the walls
Because I knew that they’d remind me
Of everything I’d lost

I packed them away
In boxes under my bed
But I could not do the same thing
With the memories in my head

Oh when I wake up it’s
Empty walls and
When I go to sleep it’s
The same because

When you walked out that door
and out of my life
A part of me died

Now it’s just me and these empty walls

Times are hardest when I’m alone
I do all I can not to think of you
But with no where for my eyes to roam
Darling, what’s a man supposed to do.

Oh when I wake up it’s
Empty walls and
When I go to sleep it’s
The same because

When you walked out that door
and out of my life
A part of me died

A part of me died
A part of me died

The further that I run from you
The clearer that I see the truth
The only thing that I can do
Is unpack these boxes

Oh when I wake up it’s
Empty walls and
When I go to sleep it’s
The same because

When you walked out that door
and out of my life
A part of me died

Now it’s just me and these empty wall
