Lyrics
Shame on You

I’m like a fast train, rolling down the tracks
I’m looking for a nice girl, who’s never coming back
I’m looking for someone, who’ll never have to stay
I’m looking for the right one, who’ll show me on my way

Shame on you
Thinkin’, I was true

I’m like a highway, always straight and true
I’m looking for a rest stop, moving next to you
I’m searching for a stop sign, so I can rest my bones
I’m riding on a black cloud; I’m never coming home

Shame on you
For always thinkin’ blue

I’m like a airplane, faster through the air
I’ve found an airport, gonna’ land there
I’m looking for some action, so I’ve brought my gun
Just like the last time, it’s always so much fun

All my heart
Has been sinking dark

Shame on You
I like the hooky melody. The contrast between the verse and chorus is very cool. In many other songs the chorus is a dynamic lift. But I like how you turn it around and use the chorus as a place to pull back from the energy of the verse. I like the guitar entering at 1:00. Simple but adds a lot of texture!

Hi Andrew
Yeah, I had something else before at the first guitar break, but it was way too busy and took too much away. You can hear a bit of it as the song fades out at the second guitar break. Texture was the idea there, and thanks for noticing.

Thanks

Shame on You
Has a Tom Petty vibe for me. I like the parallel structure in the verses. Good imagery in the lyric "riding on a black cloud". Transition from chorus back to verse is cool.

Thanks dave
"Riding on a black cloud" sounded a lot better than, "Riding on a hot dog". Agreed.

Glad you liked it,

Enjoyable
Hi David. The subdued nature of the "chorus" contrasts well with the more "up" verses. Catchy tune. Enjoyable. Regards, Peter.

Love this one Dave, old man. Good writing and the kinda dark chord progression before you get into the plane is my favorite. I really like that guitar riff, especially the way it developed at the end.

Another download. Might need a new iPod - this one is bulging at the seams!
