Name For You

Album: Heartworms (2017)

  • Rolling down the ancient high street you find
    In the mirror reflects a woman in her prime
    And you made your way out
    In a world dearly won
    Well it's yours, love
    You can move it around
    Given all the drops in the ocean
    Better take it one sip at a time
    Somebody with an antique notion
    Come along to tighten the line
    They're just afraid of you speaking your mind
    Your mind

    They've got a name for you girls
    What's in a name? (What's in a name?)
    What's in a name?
    They've got a name for everything
    All of them clothes that you wear
    And all of your bits and pieces, yeah oh

    Flipping through the check-stand rags it appears
    There ain't no time to waste, you're getting on in years
    You can keep your can up
    If you just never eat again
    It's a means to a terrible end
    Even if your plan is successful
    Have you really got room in your life?
    And it's a bland kind of torture
    You've played the mother and wife
    But what do you really dream of at night?

    They got a name for you girls
    What's in a name? (What's in a name, what's in a name?)
    They got a name for you girls
    Some stupid name, yeah
    They got a name for you girls
    What's in a name, name?
    What's in a name?
    What's in a name?
    What's in a name, name?
    (What's in a) what's in a name, name?
    What's in a name, name, name, name?
    What's in a name? (What's in a name?)
    What's in a name, name? Writer/s: James Russell Mercer
