Default Curving text within a shape (as paragraph text)

Does anyone know how to curve text within a shape, as paragraph text, not artistic text? (See my attached image.)

I have drawn the shape, inserted the text as paragraph text, but the text always wants to sit straight. I am so frustrated as I cant find a workaround in either Corel or Adobe CS products. I have tried using artistic text in Corel, but have to do it line by line - and this brings other problems, such as I cant justify each line with each other, and sometimes a character jumps up relative to the other characters and the entire paragraph does not taper in at the bottom...so this unfortunately is not a solution, apart from the fact it will take me FOREVER to insert text line by line....I would like to treat the text as a multiple line paragraph, and follow the shape.

So, to all you brilliant designers out there....PLEASE HELP!

Default Curving Text

The only way I know is to do each line individually. If you find a better way please post I would love to know.
