Iris

From the unofficial Duke TIP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls is a slow song that is played at every dance (at least at East and KU (at least at term 1 2013)). Since many TiPsters have fond memories of the dances and their RelationTIP associated with this Iris, hearing it after TiP can cause some of them to start sobbing uncontrollably.

Iris is played at Duke East and Duke West. It is never played at Rice, they have a different traditional slow song.


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
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to 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
