What’s in a name? if two hearts feel the same-
They’re driven by passion, like moths to the flame.
Led onto destruction, with no one to blame-
Victims of Eros, O, what’s in a name?

How can two people, lightyears apart-
Be drawn into romance, by poetic art...
At last they discover, the infinite pain-
Of loving and losing...what’s in a name?

What’s in a name, a rose by another-
Will smell no less sweet, I’m sure you’ll discover.
And love unrequited, will bring no less pain-
If never confessed... O, what’s in a name?

------------------
Live large, people!
