Faces and Names #One

I always fall in love with someone who looks
The way I wish that I could be
I'm always staring at someone who hurts
And the one they hurt is me

Faces and names, I wish they'd go away
I'd disappear into that wall and never talk
Talk, not talk

Faces and names only cause trouble for me 
Faces and names, I wish they were the same
If we all looked the same and we all had the same name
I wouldn't be jealous of you or you jealous of me
Id rather be a hole in the wall
Looking out on the other side
Id rather look and listen, listen and not talk
To faces and names

If you dress older when you're not
As your really age you look the same
If we all looked the same, we wouldn't play these games
Me dressing for you and you dressing for me
all graffiti from the area around the Custard Factory, Birmngham
words from Songs for Drella by Lou Reed and John Cale
