Back to That's Not My Name lyrics

That's Not My Name

Four letter word just to get me along
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue and I,
I keep stalling, and keeping it together
People around gotta find something to say now

Holding back, everyday the same
Don't wanna be a loner
Listen to me, oh no, I never say anything at all
But with nothing to consider they forget my name
'ame, 'ame, 'ame

They call me Hell
They call me Stacey
They call me her
They call me Jane

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name

They call me quiet girl
But I'm a riot
Mary-Jo-Lisa
Always the same

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name

I miss the catch if they throw me the ball
I'm the last chick standing up against the wall
Keep-a falling, these heels they keep me boring
Getting glammed up and sitting on the fence now

So alone all the time and I
Lock myself away, listen to me, oh no
And though I'm dressed up, out and all
With everything considered they forget my name
'ame, 'ame, 'ame

They call me Hell
They call me Stacey
They call me her
They call me Jane

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name

(background vocals, sung in counterpart)
This lick was in my head
Now it's in my mind
Call a preacher, get some words and get some timing
Though I realize
I cannot emphasize
Sitting around with just a promise, nothing binding
However, can't you see
Living so desperately
A standing joker, like a vocal one-liner
Instead of sing-along
This song is monotone
I gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling

They call me quiet girl
But I'm a riot
Mary-Jo-Lisa
Always the same

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name

Are you calling me darling?
Are you calling me bird?
Are you calling me darling?
Are you calling me bird?

They call me Hell
They call me Stacey
They call me her
They call me Jane

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name

They call me quiet girl
(Are you calling me bird?)
But I'm a riot
Mary-Jo-Lisa
Always the same

That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my...name
