name

Even though the moment passed me by, I still can’t turn away
All the dreams you never thought you’d lose got tossed along the way
Letters that you never meant to send lost or thrown away

Now we’ve grown up orphans that never knew their names
We don’t belong to no one that’s a shame
But you could hide beside me maybe for awhile
and I won’t tell no one your name
And I won’t tell ’em your name

Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far
And did you lose yourself way out there, did you get to be a star?
Don’t it make you sad to know that life is more than who we are?
Grew up way too fast and now there’s nothing to believe
Reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio,
And I won’t tell no one your name
I won’t tell ’em your name

I think about you all the time, but I don’t need the same
It’s lonely where you are come back down
And I won’t tell ’em your name
