Shamed into Love

This song is by Elvis Costello and appears on the album Deep Dead Blue Live 25 June 95 (1995) and on the album For the Stars (2001) by Anne Sofie von Otter and Elvis Costello.

I fear, my dear
We've forgotten the things strangers do
If we could look back
To the terrible thrill that we knew
Am I imagining a world without you?
Must we be shamed into love?

What can I say?
Will you pardon my stupid embrace?
Sometimes I'm desperate
While you're wiping the smile from your face
Am I surrendering, or am I replaced?
Must we be shamed into love?

Shamed into love
You're once a fool for having it
Twice for letting it go
Somewhere, my love, there's a feeling deep inside of me
That I can't let go
Oh, you'll never know

But then, my darling
I've forbidden myself to confess
I've looked around now
But I always return to your face
In a world where everything
I once cursed, I bless
It must be you who shamed me into love

Must we be shamed into love?
