Forever In Shame

"Forever In Shame"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

When your man caught you cheatin', he didn't say a word

He packed some things in a case and flew off like a bird

He left you his fortune, and he left you his name

Now you're left with your conscience, to live forever in shame

You married for money, and then you got bored

You started messin' around, always lookin' for more

Your ego took over, you never thought you'd get caught

Never careful what you wished for, and what you wanted you got

Woman, old woman, I feel sorry for you

When you wake in the morning, you've got nothin' to do

You've got money to burn, but you never learned to be true

You've got a beautiful home, but no one to share it with you

Now when a man comes a knockin', it's at your front door

And the whole world can see that when it rains it poors

They all want your money, they don't ever want you

You've got nowhere to hide, and no one to run to

Your friends have deserted you, they've all seen what you've done

And your family's disowned you, now you’re left with no one

You're nervous and worried, you’re lonesome and blue

He won't ever return, and it’s too late to start new

Woman, old woman, I feel sorry for you

When you wake in the morning, you've got nothin' to do

You've got money to burn, but you never learned to be true

You've got a beautiful home, but no one to share it with you

You'll never be forgiven, you know better than to ask

You with no morals, and even less class

You had a good thing goin', a chance at true happiness

But you threw it all away, and now you're stuck in this mess

When your man caught you cheatin', he didn't say a word

He packed some things in a case and flew off like a bird

He left you his fortune, and he left you his name

Now you're left with your conscience, to live forever in shame

Woman, old woman, I feel sorry for you

When you wake in the morning, you've got nothin' to do

You've got money to burn, but you never learned to be true

You've got a beautiful home, but no one to share it with you

You’ve caused so much pain, more than you’ll ever know

You’ve made your own bed, you lie in judgment alone
