Goo Goo Dolls – Name

Goo Goo Dolls, a familiar name in the alternative rock scene back in the early 90′s and is still going strong til now..

They weren’t quite a name until their very breakthrough success in this song, “Name”, a single in their 5th album “A Boy Named Goo”, released in 1995..

Goo Goo Dolls now consists of John Rzeznik (guitarist, lead/backing vocal), Robby Takac (bass, backing/lead vocal), and Mike Malinin (drums, percussions)..

Ever since their “first-hit” in “Name”, they have been doing great and quite successful especially with the help of “Iris”, another single that shot them to immediate stardom with 3 Grammy nominations in 1998..

Now here is the music video of “Name” by Goo Goo Dolls with its lyrics..


Goo Goo Dolls – Name

And even though the moment passed me by
I still can’t turn away
Cuz 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
And 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
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 won’t tell em’ your name
Oooh, oooh, oooh
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
