Hello, My Name Is...

Location

Hello my name is...

Isn't this party great

Hello my name is...

Let's get to know each other

Hello my name is...

Can I but you a drink

Hello my name is...

I think I like you

Hello my name is...

Let's go somewhere we can be alone

Hello my name is...

That girl you won't remember in the morning

Hello my name is...

I can show you a good time

 Hello my name is...

At least until you get tired of me

Hello my name is...

Just keep you voice down 

Hello my name is...

No one will ever know

Hello my name is...

I promise, they always promise.

Hello my name is...

I can never recover

Hello my name is...

You stole that chance away

Hello my name is...

Low self esteem

I feel like I have nothing else to take

So instead I just give

I've struggled for years

But I got tired of saying no

In a voice you never heard

Like I could be happy

Like I could forget the life stolen from me

Like I could pick up the pieces of my porcelain heart

And put it back together

Make it whole somehow

Like I could just forget what happened

Like I wouldn't remember that night

It just doesn't work that way

Now all my encounters start out as

Hello my name is...

I can't even remember anymore

Hello my name is...

Whatever you want to call me Sir

Hello my name is...

No longer a way I can identify myself

Hello my name is Brittany Larson

Why don't you tell me your name

Why don't we get to know each other

Just remember my story is a long one

It all started with

Hello my name is...

And he never let me finish
