VERSE
The out of towners are finally home
But they don’t realize it till they leave
And you’re baby’s finally grown up
But she’s not everything she thought she’d be
I’ve been sitting here every night
Having conversations with an empty chair
Sometimes I even wear your clothes
Just to pretend you’re sitting there

CHORUS
Yea, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking
Since I have the time
We could just start over again
You know you tell me your name, I’ll tell you mine
Be two strangers in a crowded bar
Looking for someone to pass the time
It was just an idea if you’re interested
Tell me your name, I’ll tell you mine

VERSE
Black eyes are apart of one’s life
So you don’t always see straight
Covering up the different colors of your skin
Just to let him get away
Yea, I’ve been trying to leave this life
I’m nearly half way home
Till I realize there’s nothing left
Worth fighting for

CHORUS
Yea, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking
Since I have the time
We could just start over again
You know you tell me your name, I’ll tell you mine
Be two strangers in a crowded bar
Looking for someone to pass the time
It was just an idea if you’re interested
Tell me your name, I’ll tell you
Yea, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking
Since I have the time
We could just start over again
You know you tell me your name, I’ll tell you mine
Be two strangers in a crowded bar
Looking for someone to pass the time
It was just an idea if you’re interested
Tell me your name, I’ll tell you mine
I’ll tell you mine

VERSE
Seems too short to be finished
But I have nothing more to say
I’m just waiting for an answer
And than I’ll be on my way

    General CommentThis song seems to be about a failed relationship... where all the options and efforts have been exhausted. The only thing left could be just pretending to completely start over. What it would take to bring it back...
