I Can't Speak Your Name
by David Hopkins

"I wrote this song about the first person who ever dumped me. It was a 'first time' for me."
- David Hopkins


Lyrics

Hang on there just a minute
can we go back to the part where I swore
you cut me off
you had me believe you were in for the long run
baby then you cut me off

What ever happened to the steady stream
of what makes you scream and what makes you dream
I was assuming this wasn't a test run
baby then you cut me off

I can't speak your name
though it's always flashing in my brain
and I will never feel the same

Hang on just one second
can we go back to the part where we hold
and you won't let go
I thought by your breathing I was all that you needed
baby then you cut me off

Last night I showed up
'cause I was sure that I'd gotten it all wrong
but you didn't come
I wanted to see what you'd wear just for me
baby but you didn't come

I can't speak you name
though it's always flashing in my brain
and I will never feel the same
