(prev. album) (#1) (#2)





Forever In Shame is a song that is a fictional story about a woman who intentionally marries a guy for the lifestyle his wealth provides and cheats on him, then the man just up and leaves her with the fancy house, car, etc.  Upon becoming aware of the cheating, he just leaves without explanation or many personal belongings at all.  She's left with suitors who are after her for the money she didn't ever really earn.  As a result, she realizes that despite having  it all, she's not happy.

Lenore plays keyboard near the end of the song.  This is one of those slow-building songs in which the instrumentation increases incrementally.  It is also structured in an odd manner, without a true chorus but rather a couple of different "refrain" sections.  This isn't a personal favorite of mine, but I wrote it, and Lenore thought it was release-worthy, so there you have it.
