         I Forgot Your Name

PARDON ME, I FORGOT YOUR NAME
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S EVE OR MARY
OR SOMETHING THAT'S ANDROGYNOUS LIKE CARRIE
I CANNOT SAY
MY MIND HAS GONE AWAY.
AND I WONDER...

DO YOU KNOW I FORGOT YOUR NAME?
I MAY KNOW AND I'M JUST NOT SAYING
YOU MAY THINK IT'S A SILLY GAME I'M PLAYING BUT IT'S NO GAME AT ALL.
I REALLY CAN'T RECALL.

WHAT'S A NAME? A NAME IS NOTHING.
NOTHING BUT A HOLLOW LABEL
HOLLOW AS A SHELL WITHIN A SHELL.
FACES MAKE A STRONG IMPRESSION.
FACES CARRY MUCH MORE MEANING.
TOO BAD I FORGOT YOUR FACE AS WELL. AND I WONDER...

COULD IT BE YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR NAME?
THAT'S OKAY, I'LL HOLD YOUR HAND AND
MEANWHILE PLEASE STAY WITH ME UNTIL WE'RE
OLD AND SENILE
THEN JUST LIKE ME,
YOU'LL FORGET YOUR NAME.
