Goo Goo Dolls Lyrics


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
And sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna 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

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

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
And sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna 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 meant 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 meant 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 meant 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...

This song deeply resonates with me to the point of cutting deep into my heart in a way I can put into words, this song and Live's "Lightning Crashes" for the same reason.
When I was in my early 20s I had a stillborn at 5 months. The pregnancy wasn't planned but I knew that I would be able being a Mum and that some plans would need to be tweeked that having a child wouldn't ruin my life or my boyfriend's.
I was in a good relationship and my boyfriend and we had planned to get engaged, move in together and once we had some stability, to plan to eventually marry after both of us finished College. We weren't living together while we were in College.
My family and his family didn't or wouldn't acknowledge the death of my daughter. Nobody talked about it at all. It was like I was never even pregnant. And the very little that was ever said, was behind my back was a sigh of relief that certain family members, his and mine, that they didn't have to deal with us having a baby.

I noticed something was wrong and went to the hospital in the middle of the night. And was being monitored, an hour of being in the hospital, the doctor told me my child had died most likely a few hours before I was admitted.
In these situations, late in the pregnancy, they wait for you to go into labour ,sometimes called a spontaneous abortion, (terrible name).
After 24 hours after I was admitted they decided to wait another 12 hours to see if they could induce labour. If in 12 hours I hadn't delivered my child they would have no choice but to do surgery. They put you under for the surgery, I later found out why. Basically the go in vaginally and cut up the child and remove it peice by peice.

I found this out because someone from my church had heard I had a therapeutic abortion. And bombarded me with graphic pamphlets including that the baby is put in a biowaste bucket and incinerated. And calling me a baby killer and a murder, in front of the parishioners.
This knowledge tormented me for years. And because not one family member or my boyfriend came to see me in the hospital. I was kept in the hospital for an additional 48 years to ensure there weren't any complications. I was alone during my entire stay in the hospital.

My feelings while in the hospital was utter despair and a loneliness that I can't describe but honestly feeling like I had entered a world were neither my child nor I existed. That both of us, Mother and Child had been and will be forever forgotten.

As I said, nobody acknowledged it and my boyfriend was also devastated and couldn't talk about it or even see me. We broke up shortly after. I still grieve the loss of my daughter. I have learnt how to healthy grieving so that I don't become lost in it. I don't speak of her, she still isn't acknowledged , I am 52 in 2022.

If you are wondering why I didn't "demand " back at the time for my family to acknowledge the fact that I was pregnant and had lost a child, it was because the entire thing was denied. If I showed any sadness I was heavily criticizes and accused of trying to "make everyone take pitty on me", or "wallowing in my grief for attention ".
It was already to painful and those images of my child's body being desecrated the way it was, was too much to then push back against my family.

So the lines "I just don't want the world to see me because I don't think that they'll understand, (I in this line refers to me)
when everything is made to be broken, (torn apart),
I just want you to know "who I am" ("who I am" is her speaking; to know that she existed, and to know who she was, she was Sarah)

You you have read my story to the end, I want to thank you for your kindness, and know you know she existed and her name was Sarah thank you 💕

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
And sooner or later, it's over
I just don't wanna 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
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

It's one of those songs you can't help but get emotional to whenever you hear it alone in your room while listening through your headphones.
