Indigo Girls – I Don't Know Your Name lyrics

Emily:
I walked into my favorite place one night
Id just gotten back from a lecture
And I was feeling kind of uptight
And at the edge of the bar there was this guy
And you know I wasnt really looking
But I caught him out of the corner of my eye
The next thing I know he was moving my way
I thought he wanted to talk
But this is what he had to say

Amy:
I don't know your name babe
But I want to be your lover
Yall sing it with me
I don't know your name babe
But I want to be your lover
Your lover your lover your lover
One time or another baby
I want to be your lover

Emily:
I have to admit I was a little bit surprised
But I wasnt really scared cause I was twice his size
So I said to myself, okay, Ill play his game
And when he turned to me
I gave him my name

Amy:
I know your name babe
But I got to know your number
I know your name babe
But I got to know your number your number
I said one time or another baby
I'm gonna be your lover
Yeah I wanna be your lover

Emily:
Well I said to myself this guy is persistent
Hes a little bit dumb but at least hes consistent
I tried to talk cool but when we touched I went under
I made a quick decision and I gave him my number

Amy:
I know your number
But I don't know what to say babe

Emily:
That's ok

Amy:
I know your number
Your number babe
But I don't know what to say to you
Say to you say to you say to you darling
Oh it don't matter anyway no
I don't talk when I'm make love to you babe
I don't talk when I make love
I wanna be you lover
I wanna be you lover
Lover lover
Lover lover
Lover lover

Emily:
Well you probably wont believe this
But we got married one day
And I still don't know if he speaks english
Cause he doesn't have much to say
Its a damn good thing I like lying around
We don't make much conversation
But love makes sounds
You know what I'm talking about
Yall know what I'm talking about
Well one thing I've learned from being in this state

Emily and amy:
There are other ways to communicate

Amy:
I don't know your name babe
But I want to be your lover
Don't know your name babe
But I want to be your lover
Your lover your lover your lover
One time or another baby
I'm gonna be your lover
