Don't Ask

written by: Magdalena Podobińska

 

Don't ask about my age
I wouldn't know what to say
you see,
there were so many birthdays
so many death days
It's all relative
I don't remember the date
of my last birthday
I've got so old
this last couple of days
Don't ask about my name
I wouldn't know what to say
you see,
there were so many names
and there was a time
of being nameless
oh, please, call me
please, call me
so I could recall my name
my stupid name
my beautiful name
please, call me
please, name me
name me again
