  • Yeah, your talk is cheap, you like mystery
    I've been awake since two AM
    I can barely stand another low
    But the highs I wanna do 'em again
    Maybe meet you with a couple friends
    This ain't love, but maybe we pretend
    Rent some pornographic movie
    And we both know how it ends
    I won't say it again

    It's the darkest time of the night
    God and vodka might save my life
    You judge, but I don't give a damn
    I live a life so shameless

    I live a life so shameless
    Oh no, I don't give a damn
    I live a life so shameless

    Go ahead, lock me up
    And throw away the key
    My heart's beatin' like a feelin'
    I got more tricks up my sleeve
    You'll never get it, but you regret it
    You won't forget this when we're done
    Hell and heaven, quit pretendin'
    Now I'm havin' too much fun
    Do you want some?

    Why not take me now as I am?
    Why not take me now like a man?
    You hate what you don't understand
    I live a life so shameless

    I live a life so shameless
    I live a life so shameless
    Oh no, I don't give a damn
    I live a life so shameless

    I've been fighting off
    A hurricane inside of me
    Here comes waves—waves—waves
    In my brain—brain—brain
    I just wanna feel your body
    On my bo—bo—dy
    A public enemy

    It's the darkest time of the night
    God and vodka just saved my life (my life, my life, my life)
    You judge, but I don't give
    No I don't give a damn
    Why not take me now as I am?
    Why not take me now like a man?
    You hate what you don't understand
    I live a life so shameless

    Oh no, I don't give a damn
    I live a life so shameless
    You hate what you don't understand
    I live a life so shameless
    No no no no no no no no
    I live a life so shameless
    You hate what you don't understand, I don't give a damn
    I live a life so shameless Writer/s: TYLER GLENN

  • Sammy Hughes from Outer Space, New MexicoIn the end of the music video, when the mask comes off, you see a third layer to the lyric: not only is he singing to his ex, and to the church... but also singing to himself. The Mormon version of himself. It represents his journey to self-acceptance.

    "Why not take me now as I am?"
