Joe didn’t know what day it was,
he was only there because
she may appear to make his day,
with a word or just a wave.

He knew that loving her was wrong,
often weak and never strong.
She’s gonna be the one to learn,
what it’s like to crash and burn.

He, living another man’s love life.
She, telling a little white lie.

Shame
written all across a face.
Time for the perfect alibi.
Shame
not a hope, a saving grace.
Time, cross a heart and hope to die.

Joe wonders what it would be like
if they had a kid tonight.
She didn’t plan to stay around,
they could never play it down.

He knew that loving her was wrong,
often weak and never strong.
She’s gonna be the one to learn,
what it’s like to crash and burn.

He, living another man’s love life.
She, telling a little white lie.

Shame
written all across a face.
Time for the perfect alibi.
Shame
not a hope, a saving grace.
Time, cross a heart and hope to die.

Shame
what they’ve got is really good.
Time, maybe make it if they could.
Shame
this affair has got to end.
Time, shake a love and make amends.

Shame
written all across a face.
Time for the perfect alibi.
Shame
not a hope, a saving grace.
Time, cross a heart and hope to die.

Joe didn’t know what day it was,
he was only there because…
