Name – Goo Goo Dolls

“Scars are souvenirs you never lose”
Goo Goo Dolls

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
Get 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 if 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

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

You 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 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

Random Rumor: When I was in high school (1998), one of my guy friends told me that there is a trick when you want to play Name on your guitar: deliberately make it out of tune to get the right chords. Huh? Somebody enlighten me.

    OMG! Eto kaya pinakagusto kong song ng Goo Goo Dolls next to Slide.. =)

  2. Pippin Said:

    yes, you have to tune your guitar differently to play the chords of Name ng tama. it’s a tricky thing kasi e like the intro ^^;

  3. Michiko Said:

    @ stayz: hahaha. apir tayo! pareho tayo! Sure, sumikat ang Iris. But Name is mah ferz lurv. Hehe. The lyrics just get to me more than Iris. I like Slide din! w00t! Tapos Broadway hehe.

    @ Pippin: Hahaha. I thought my friend was just trying to pull my leg then hehe. Thanks~

    in chart:

    Lower the 6th string E to D
    Raise the 4th string D to E

    It isn’t a trick – it is just an alternate tuning

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin.

    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
