DRESS IX

GIRL WITH NO NAME

No one in the town

Really knows who I am

Think that they got me pinned

But they don’t understand

So they give me the flick

I’m out on the edge

My own worst critic

I won’t hedge my bets

 

They seem curious

But won’t say my name

Won’t come play with me

I bear a secret shame

Even they don’t know

Why it is they won’t speak to me

It was so long ago

But they can’t forget

 

The girl with no name

The girl with no name

I bear a secret shame

That no one can name

 

I learned to live

With somebody’s lies

That somebody said

And somebody spread

So long ago

That nobody knows

And no one to blame

 

But the girl with no name

The girl with no name

I bear a secret shame

That no one can name

 

And what would you do

The shoe on the other foot

Play with what you got

No pain no gain

What you gotta lose

But your name
