Your Name
Written by Henry Particelli

I cry for you today but I don’t know you
I wish that you were here so we could show you
There’s not a soul on earth that thinks this is fair
I ain’t about to shake this off like I don’t care
I’m rattled to the core full of emotion
I’ve watched you on the news in slow motion
Those moving images protect you from the lies
‘Cause your leaving us was so unjustified

I’m angry I’m sad I’m a whole lot confused
Take two steps forward and then come all unglued
I can see red my knuckles are white
I’m trying to get a grip on what happened that night
I’m sure you never wanted this kind of fame
I’m so sorry that’s how we know your name

Everybody deals with things a little different
Some folks talk and then there’s those that never listen
I wish we all loved one another just the same
We’re too caught up in our online debates
Between politics, race and religion
Seems we’re all in one big no-win competition
We need to try to see things through each other’s eyes
Until hate becomes the only thing that dies

I’m angry I’m sad I’m a whole lot confused
Take two steps forward then come all unglued
I can see red my knuckles are white
I’m trying to get a grip on what happened that night
I’m sure you never wanted this kind of fame
I’m so sorry that’s how we know your name

I’m angry I’m sad I’m downright ashamed
Believe me when I say that we’re not all that way
We can’t just quit we’ve got so much to prove
‘Cause united we stand, but divided we lose

I’m sure you never wanted this kind of fame
I’m so sorry that’s how we know your name

I’m sure you never wanted this kind of fame
But I promise that we’ll honor your name
