Faces and names
I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause trouble for me
Faces and names

If we all looked the same
And we all had the same name
I wouldn't be jealous of you or you jealous of me
Faces and names

I always fall in love with someone who looks
The way I wish that I could be
I'm always staring at someone who hurts
And the one they hurt is me

Faces and names
To me they're all the same
If I looked like you and you looked like me
There'd be less trouble you'd see

Faces and names
I wish they'd go away
I'd disappear into that wall and never talk
Talk now talk

I wish I was a robot or a machine
Without a feeling or a thought
People who want to meet the name I have
Are always disappointed in me

Faces and names
I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause problems for me
Faces and names

I'd rather be a hole in the wall
Looking on the other side
I'd rather look and listen, listen, not talk
To faces and names

If I had a breakdown when I was a kid
And I lost my hair when I was young
If you dress older when you are not
As your really age you look the same

If we all looked the same
We wouldn't play these games
Me dressing for you, you dressing for me
Undressing for me

Faces and names
If they all were the same
You wouldn't be jealous of me or me jealous of you
Me jealous of you, you jealous of you

Your face and your name
Your face and your name
Faces and names
Faces and names
