Against Me! Because of the Shame Lyrics

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 tatooed 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 resemblence 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 tatooed 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 resemblence 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 tatooed into my skin
With your name tatooed 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 resemblence you shared
It wasn't her words that shook me
But the resemblence you shared

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