Would you light me up?

Would you light me up

Intro

All my friends they shoulder me
And my poor head of woe
They know I’m good
But I want to be bad

Standing there with the lights down low
And lovers who make love
They see me smiling
But I want to be sad

Would you light me up
Really set me on fire ??
And be there when I’m burning out

Would you hold my head
’Neath the water tap ??
And elbow me if I get too loud?

Evil walks the streets by day
’Tween every crack and pave
And by night it cower and hides

Here it comes that awful sting
When you let someone in
You sit so bare in the lame legged chair

Would you light me up
Really set me on fire ??
And be there when I’m burning out

Would you hold my head
’Neath the water tap ??
And elbow me if I get too loud?

I want to live between the lie
And where the truth dies
Everything in its own time

Would you light me up
Really set me on fire ??
And be there when I’m burning out

Would you hold my head
’Neath the water tap ??
And elbow me if I get too loud?

outro

Would you light me up: In an interview with Genius, Ciaran Lavery described “Shame” as, “A very simple song based on the expectations and fear that come with meeting someone new, as crippling as they are.”

In the same interview, Lavery explained how the song was written and recorded: ‘Shame’ was written at a time I was binging out on some serious Ryan Adams. It sort of just fell out, I remember it taking less than half an hour to write. I didn’t think much of it, even the first few times I played it live I wasn’t sure how it would be received. It was almost not recorded at all. I recorded it at Start Together studios in Belfast, I had around 10 minutes of studio time left in the day and recall saying how I just wanted to throw a song down before I forget it. That was ‘Shame.’
