Lately I've been thinking about the past How there is no holding back No point in wasting sorrow On things that won't be here tomorrow
But you and I well, we don't need to speak It's the secret that we keep Out of view and out of sight Just say when and we'll say goodnight
Tell me it's okay To live life this way Sometimes I want you to stay I know it's a shame Shame Shame
I've spent so much of my time Going out of my mind Trying so hard to be of use But what you cannot gain you lose
In L.A., the sun's almost too bright I cannot get it right The emptiness I feel And now none of it seems real
Maybe it's alright If I just spend the night Sometimes I just can't bear to walk away I know it's a shame Shame Shame
Who have I become? Who will I be Come tomorrow?
Tell me it's okay If I ask you to stay Sometimes the night cuts through me like a knife I know it's a shame I know it's a shame I know it's a shame Shame Shame Shame

The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
