Somebody Tell Me My Name
Words and Music by: Larry Norman and People! As I wander through this city In a nameless town I walk Now I got this empty feeling Names on sidewalks scribed in chalk But flower people cannot talk. Can this be a city's tombstone? Broken neon signs that say Happy days are here forever I think I'm in a plane So let me think about today What will become of me now that I'm here? When will the crowd give a cheer? Have you got the time of day It doesn't bother me The time I've got can fill a day and one eternity It seems so strange, it doesn't change There's no one here but me I wouldn't like to take a chance and ruin reality So long ago the city roared, it filled me inside out Today I find an empty piece, I shared it with myself. Look into windows where people have been No one expected to win. Climbing stairs to reach the ending Of a life that's been a sham Why should I be left to wander? City, won't you take this land? No one left to lend a hand Everything happens when nothing's the same. Somebody tell me my name - Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name Somebody tell me my name.
