        Faces and names, I wish they were the same
        faces and names only cause trouble for me
        Faces and names

        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
        Faces and names

        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, to me they're all the same
        if I looked like you and you looked like me
        There'd be less trouble you'd see

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

        I wish I was a robot or a machine
        without a feeling or a thought
        People who want to meet the name I have
        are always disappointed in me

        Faces and names, I wish they were the same
        faces and names only cause problems for me
        Faces and names

        I'd rather be a hole in the wall
        looking on the other side
        I'd rather look and listen, listen not talk
        To faces and names

        If I had a breakdown when I was a kid
        if I lost my hair when I was young
        If you dress older when you are not
        as you really age, you look the same

        If we all looked the same, we wouldn't play these games
        me dressing for you, you dressing for me
        Undressing for me

        Faces and names, if they all were the same
        you wouldn't be jealous of me or me jealous of you
        Me jealous of you, you jealous of you

        Your face and your name
        your face and your name
        Faces and names
        faces and names
