Our Name

Our name is very personal to us. Before our kids were born I fell in love with Glen Phillips’ song “Don’t Need Anything” but it wasn’t until after my first-born that the song became part of our bedtime routine. The only change I make each time I sing it is replace “she” with “my family”. Here are the lyrics and link to Glen Phillips’ YouTube.

 

Lyrics

I’ve got gardens growing, got quiet days
Clothes on my back, food on my plate
Got friends to help me if I call for them
I don’t need anything that I don’t have

I’ve got eyes to see this beautiful land
And feet to take me where I want to stand
If there’s work to be done
There’s these two strong hands
I don’t need anything that I don’t have
I don’t need anything that I don’t have

Some years the rains don’t come
And some years floods clear out the plains
If those waters washed this town away
I would still have enough
If she was with me

I’ve a roof overhead, the stars if I choose
But I’ve got no itch to fly, got no need to move

Got almost nothing
But I understand
That I don’t need anything that I don’t have

I don’t need anything that I don’t have
