Because of the Shame (Acoustic Version)

We used to get high together
Instead of getting high alone
Can't remember the last time I saw you
Can't remember the last time we talked

You left home for a fresh start
Working as a waitress down in Bradenton
With my name tattooed into your skin

Because of the shame I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely, can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today with tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me but the resemblance you shared

Don't it seem so detached and unreal?
Don't it seem so far away?
Like the past never happened
Like nothing's ever changed

With your casket open in front of me
Your eyes closed and your lips silent
My name tattooed into your skin

Because of the shame I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely, can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today with tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me but the resemblance you shared

Didn't listen to the preacher, couldn't look your husband in the eye
I'm not sure what I meant to you then so I'm not sure what I owe you now
But if something I said hurt you, I swear it was not my intention
With your name tattooed into my skin, with your name tattooed into my skin

Because of the shame I associate with vulnerability
I am numbing myself completely, can you hear me right now?
I watched your mother bury you today with tears in her eyes
It wasn't her words that shook me but the resemblance you shared
It wasn't her words that shook me but the resemblance you shared

Can you hear me right now?
Can you hear me right now?
