GOO GOO DOLLS


Name Lyrics

And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away
Cuz all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Got lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans
And never knew their names
We don't belong to no one
That's a shame
But you could hide beside me
Maybe for a while
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name

And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are

We grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell 'em your name
I won't tell em' your name
Oooh, oooh, oooh
I won't tell em' your name
Ow!

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

This song is about growing up in foster homes and being abondoned by parents. I know this from one of the kids that grow up with the singer.

I think by the line don't it make you sad to know life is more than who we are is meaning to say that we live in a materialistic world and its not about who we are but what we own...

This is one of the best Goo Goo Dolls songs! It's better than Iris to me, which is overrated. Of course, all GGD songs are good, so no worries :)

And don't it make you sad to know that life is more than who we are? NO... actually it wld make me sad if life was only who we are. How narrow & pathetic life wld be if it was just abt us.

Im feeling everything behind this song more than ever these past few days. And I feel like its about escape. From your life, from the people in it - all the unrequested responsibilities that follow it
