Lyrics

SAY MY NAME

MY BROTHER PLAYS A MEAN GUITAR
ME, I PLAY WITH THE TRUTH
AND BEND TO FIT MY FANTASY
THE SECRET NOTES OF YOUTH

THE DAMAGED ONE WHO CAME UNDONE
NOW HAS SURVIVED AS PROOF
IT CAN STOP HERE – CAN STOP HERE

CHORUS:
SAY MY NAME, SAY MY NAME
I WALK THIS EARTH, MY LIFE HAS WORTH
AND IT’S NOT YOU I BLAME

DESPAIR DISGUISED IN LOVE AND LIES
SUCCUMBED TO SORROW’S FLAME
I AM AS ASH UPON YOUR LIPS
FOR GOD’S SAKE SAY MY NAME

I GAVE THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE
TO THE FIRST BOY WHO MADE ME FEEL
AND TRIED SO HARD TO WIN HIS HEART
THE LIES I TOLD SEEMED REAL

WE CUT EACH OTHER DOWN SO LONG
THE WOUNDS COULD NOT BE HEALED
IT ALL STOPPED THERE – IT STOPPED THERE

IT MUST STOP HERE – MUST STOP HERE

I’M LIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS NOW
FAR FROM THAT SOUTHERN BEACH
BUT ALL THE PAINFUL MEMORIES
STILL LIE WITHN MY REACH

AND THOUGH THE HURT WAS MINE TO LEARN
IT WON’T BE MINE TO TEACH
IT ALL STOPS HERE - IT STOPS HERE
