A Boy With No Name

from by Grant Campbell




I remember the day my mother told me
Not to hold on too tight, don't let nobody own me
I just do what I can with what I've been given
Got no debt on my side, no need to be forgiven

I surrendered in vain, I think it was a Sunday
I threw out my voice, heard it echo down the hallway
I've wrestled with books until every word felt the same
I gave up inside, just a boy with no name, a boy with no name

Now I wear my best coat, just to hide in the corners
They’re drinking red wine and singing at the chorus
Couldn't stand anymore, but I wasn't ashamed
Spilling tears as I ran, a boy with no name, a boy with no name

My hand felt the cold as I wound down the window
Old shoes on the bed, black marks on the pillow
I'll always remember your smile, as I remember the rain
And the rise & the fall of a boy with no name, a boy with no name
