I Know Your Name.

from Tempest Tost by David Campbell

about

A punchy tune that almost didn't make the final cut.

lyrics

Do we know the reasons, why we do the things we do
Buckling under the stresses we put each other through
Biting the bullet and I'm leaving you alone
But I won't pretend that I think you're better off at home

I know your name
It's burnt into the back of my heart
I know your name and I don't believe
We'll ever be the same again

I know your name
It's always on the back of my mind
I know your name
But I don't believe I'll
let you break my heart again

Millions of people who never walk that country mile
A nod to St. Peter
Slip him a wink and a crooked smile
I know the price and, the cost of the things you have to do
That's why forever, I think I'll always be bound to you

I know your name
It's burnt into the back of my heart
I know your name and I don't believe
We'll ever be the same again

I know your name
It's always on the back of my mind
I know your name
But I don't believe I'll
Let you break my heart again

Look to the North
See the light shining from our eyes
I'll always remember it there, reflected in the sky
Walking back home
Planning our future with a laugh
A delicate balance, too delicate to last

I know the answers
To all of the questions we don't ask
I look to the future
And know I'm looking at the past
Picture you sitting
Looking out over your fields at dawn
Both of us missing
All the people who have gone

I know your name.
It's carved into the back of my heart
I know your name and I don't believe
You'll ever be the same again

I know your name
It's always on the tip of my tongue
I know your name
But I don't believe I'll
Let you break my heart again

I'll let you break my heart again
