"Nameless"
Far Too Jones
Album: Picture Postcard Walls

What if I was easily ashamed?
Easily confused by the questions that were raised
What if she was quietly afraid
Quietly reminded by the name we never gave
What could I do?
How could I save you, when I can't save me?

Chorus #1:
And I'm calling out a piece of a lie
I know someday we'll have to say your name (it)
And I'll say your name, nameless one

In between the lies, in between the spaces
Lie the faces, of the ones that we don't talk about no more
And in between the covers, in between the lovers
We are only two, among so few the only ones who knew
What did I know?
I could have saved you, and now I can't save me

Chorus #2:
And I'm calling out a piece of a lie
I know someday we'll have to say it
Calling out, a piece of a lie
I know someday we'll have to say your name
And I'll say your name, nameless one

Now you're already fading
We seem to talk around you
I guess I'm not that strong right now
I thought about you for a moment
Then the moment moved on
And so did I

[Chorus #2]

Who will be my nameless one?
Who will be my nameless one?
Who will be my nameless one?

    General CommentDoes anyone hear this as anything other than a guy who feels really guilty about his girlfriend having an abortion?

    But maybe it's deeper than that, and has a religious aspect to it. Why will they have to name it (literally name the baby? or name as in owning up to something they've done wrong?) one day, and why can't he save himself after not saving it? Maybe he's afraid that they're damned now.
