About This Song


I wrote this song because I have always been a fan of Roy Orbison, and this style of music. Roy could sing a broken heart song like no other. Thanks for listening!

What a great tune…you captured that Orbison sound and feel…I can totally hear him singing it.

Hi Marvin, great job!  I LOVE the line
“Shame on me for loving you with my eyes closed so tight”.  That’s a killer line!  Very simple song and heartfelt.

I think it’s time, time to end this masquerade
Of pretending we’re okay
Waiting just deepens the pain
Putting off facing the shame

Shame on me for loving you with my eyes closed so tight
Shame on you for letting me think everything’s alright
You should have told me, I should have seen
Shame on you, shame on me

I can’t believe you let me learn from our friends
You’re not really over him
Making me look like a fool
Breaking my blind heart in two

Shame on me for loving you with my eyes closed so tight
Shame on you for letting me think everything’s alright
You should have told me, I should have seen
Shame on you, shame on me

Even if I’d known it all would end
I’d still love you all over again

Shame on me for loving you with my eyes closed so tight
Shame on you for letting me think everything’s alright
You should have told me, I should have seen
Shame on you, shame on me

You should have told me, I should have seen
Shame on you, shame on me
