Name Lyrics - Goo Goo Dolls

Review The Song (10)

And even though the moment passed me by,
I still can't turn away;
'Cause 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
That 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,
Now there's nothing to believe
When 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.
And I won't tell em' your name.
And 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.

Can't get it out of my head | Reviewer: DJ | 1/21/14

Someone approached about an event that happened in 1988 and the subsequent consequences of that act some 25 years later. I thought of this song, the happenstance and little else in the last few weeks.

Sweet Beautiful Sad Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/20/13

I lovew this song even though it's sad because it's beautiful no matter what people say it's one of the best songs ever and makes me want to cry, but at the same time it makes me fell happy inside,it's just one of those songs that means s much to me. This song will never get old and i will always love it. Always.

so much emotion. great song. | Reviewer: madison | 2/18/10

this song can easily make me cry, i think i was around 6 when the song was big and even then i thought it was sad. now im 18 and its still on my ipod, this song and 'lightning crashes' by live are the two songs out there that really get me emotional. im driving and it'll come on and i start to tear up. the guitar and johnnys voice are just to good to turn the station, great song.

This Song Really Hit's me in the heart. | Reviewer: Buddy Tyree | 4/3/08

Not many guys like to admit that a song can mean alot to them and make them almost cry, but this song really hits me. The lyric "Don't it make you sad to know that life is more than who we are?" really hits me. This song is about Johnny Rzeznik losing his mother. This song can mean so many things. I've played it on guitar and sang it countless times. The world was blessed when Johnny Rzeznik was born, and he will always stand as my favorite singer/songwriter/guitarist of all time.

reminds me of heath | Reviewer: wends | 3/22/08

this song reminds me so much of heath ledger.. its so sad... especially the bit where it says "Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?" and "We grew up way too fast
Now there's nothing to believe
And re-runs all become our history"
i miss u heath...

Great Song | Reviewer: lisa | 8/2/04

I remember them playing it on the radio all the time back in the 90's and now that they brought it back it brought back a lot of memories for me. The good o'l 90's.
