Bespoke Songs Lost Dogs Detour - Shamed Into Love lyrics

(written by elvis costello, submitted by craig ciccone)

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?
