Iris

I heard this song for the first time today, and I am nowhere near dissapointed. I was hooked was soon as I heard the lyrics and i don't want the world to see me / 'cause i don't think that they'd understand, and as I listened further, I was drawn in by the singer's amazing, passionate voice and the melodies, which were executed beautifully. At that point, I got to thinking "...who is this amazing band?! Why havn't I heard of them before?!" Then I looked up those lyrics, discovered the song... and laughed out loud.
The Goo Goo Dolls? Are you kidding me? I had heard of them before, but never even given them a chance; who could take a group with a name like that seriously? But let me tell you, I've been thoroughly humbled; a true "don't-judge-a-book-by-its-cover" moment. Never again will I underestimate a band because of their name.
So, do yourself a favor; take a moment to hear Iris; even if the group's name makes you laugh. The music video is simply spectacular.

Iris
The Goo Goo Dolls

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

...

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
