THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

SHAMELESS

(Oakey/Sutton)

I never thought I'd have the nerve
To break from the conventional
I never thought my path would curve
And lead to sin intentional
The heaven that you take me to
Is really just a darker place
I knew that if I fell for you
I really had to fall from grace
From the moment that you held me
I'd forgotten wrong and right
From the second that you touched me
Was a creature of the night
Made a folly out of caution
Made all virtue seem bizarre
Through a mirror of distortion
Watching coldly from afar
Oh shameless, oh
Oh shameless, oh
And how could such a fate befall
A person of such principles
From never doing wrong at all
To scandal inconceivable
I'm pounding at the gates of hell
Impatient for the journey in
I'll face the fury at your side
So let the tragedy begin
From the moment that you held me
I'd forgotten wrong and right
From the second that you touched me
Was a creature of the night
Made a folly out of caution
Made all virtue seem bizarre
Through a mirror of distortion
Watching coldly from afar
Oh shameless, oh
For the touch of your hand
Oh shameless, oh
Let them misunderstand
Oh shameless, oh
Just the touch of your hand
Oh shameless, oh
And they misunderstand
