WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              what's your name?
              I'd like to write a song about you.
              but just the same,
              no label can fit the memory of you.
              I don't know your husband's face.
              but if you left him for me,
              perhaps it wouldn't last too long.
              but then, if you went away,
              I'll still have this song.

              I don't know your name,
              but here's a song I wrote about you.
              it helps ease my pain
              in the times when I must do without you.

              I was just thinking
              about the way that you smile at me.
              is it because you're happy?
              or is it that all your world is darkness
              and I'm your only light?

              no, I don't know your name,
              but here's a song I wrote about you.
              it helps ease my pain
              in the times when I must do without you.

              yes, this is a song that I wrote back then.
              it's not very long,
              but that's just so
              I can sing it again and again and again and again.

              I never knew her name,
              but here's a song I wrote about her.
              it helps ease my pain
              now that I must live without her.
