06. Dear Shame

Not Ashamed
by Newsboys



 

I catch you diggin in my trash
For stuff I've long thrown away.
You bring it back on a tray.
And I hear you wheezing in the hall
Spreading germs and old news.
You always love to confuse.
I flee the light just to live in your shadow.
I'm needing mercy and you offer me blame.

Dear shame:
You're oh so eager to toy with me.
You're always stealing the joy in me.
You love to whisper my name,
Dear shame, Dear shame.

You've got me living like a bug,
Crawling in fear.
(It's been a very long year.)
I dream of growing some wings,
I think I'm flying away,
Then you point and you spray.
All my hidden secrets crave the light of forgiveness.
You pull the shades, you accuse and you blame.

Dear shame:
You're oh so eager to toy with me.
You're always stealing the joy in me.
You love to whisper my name,
Dear shame, Dear shame.

I fled the light just to live in your shadow.
I needed mercy, and you offered me blame.

Dear shame:
You're oh so eager to toy with me.
You're always stealing the joy in me.
You love to whisper my name,
Dear shame, Dear shame.

Dear shame:
I think I'm wise to your strategy.
I won't be needing your company.
My name's eternally clear,
Dear Shame, Dear Shame.
