Keep Your Name

Album: Dirty Projectors (2017)
  • I don't know why you abandoned me
    You were my soul and my partner
    What we imagined and what we became
    We'll keep 'em separate and you keep your name

    You keep your name
    You keep your name
    You keep your name
    You keep your name, you keep your name

    There is a place that we both know
    It lives in our hearts, we built it together
    Fear is a manacle but love is unchained
    So we'll keep 'em separate and you keep your name

    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)

    I wasn't there for you
    I didn't pay attention
    I didn't take you seriously
    And I didn't listen
    I don't think I ever loved you
    That was some stupid shit
    I wanted what you wanted but we never really felt the same
    I kept my name 'cause we were just different
    Your heart is saying clothing line
    My body said Naomi Klein, No Logo
    We shared kisses and visions
    But like KISS' shithead Gene Simmons said:
    A band is a brand and it looks that our vision is dissonant

    You always hurried to grow up
    I think I'll always just feel kinda the same
    What I want from art is truth, what you want is fame
    Now we'll keep 'em separate and you keep your name

    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye)
    You keep your name (we don't see eye to eye) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
