The Airborne Toxic Event – What’s In A Name Lyrics

There was nothing you could do but turn away
They told the fathers to hide all the girls away
It’s just a name, a name, a name, a name, what’s in a name?

And you were sleeping by the time I found you there
I said, “It’s a shame we gotta cut off all that hair…”

But it’s alright, I just hope it’s nothing bad
You can call me if you’re sad, I don’t care what your father said

We were running through the halls of the middle school
Writing our names on the side of the public pool
Like two ghosts in flight on a sleepless night, we were alive

And you told me you were scared of suicide
On the night that your best friend’s brother died

But it’s alright, I just hope it’s nothing bad
You can call me if you’re sad, I don’t care what your father said

I was lost in you dancing around in your living room
And you said your mother’s in the back on Valium
And she sleeps so hard that you wonder if she’s alive

And so I parked my bike outside your house
You said, “There’s nothing you can do to make me come out!”
Because your daddy said I was the worst one yet, it was a lie, a lie, a lie, a lie
Because I always loved the way you looked in that [?] light
Just dancing around in some old sweater of mine

But it’s alright, I just hope it’s nothing bad
Just promise me you won’t get mad, I don’t care what your father said

This is not a game, it would be a crying shame
Honestly, what’s in a name?
Tell me, what’s in a name, a name, a name…

Oh we were so young, we were so wrong.

We were so wrong.

[The Airborne Toxic Event – What’s In A Name Lyrics]
