39 Better Names For The Goo Goo Dolls' Song "Iris"
By Funny Or Die
Published March 29, 2016 More Info »
Did you know that the Goo Goo Dolls’ song “When Everything’s Made (To Be Broken)” was recently declared the best song of the 90s? It’s true. If you haven’t heard it recently, do yourself a favor and take a listen to the moving City Of Angels theme song.
But did you also know that the song isn’t actually called “When Everything’s Made (To Be Broken)” but rather “Iris”? It’s true. But what if the song was named something else entirely? We asked our writers to come up with alternate song names. Check it out:

Can you think of a better name? Let us know in the comments. See below for lyrics to “Iris” in case you need a refresher.
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 wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When 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
Mmmm, whatcha say?
Mmmm, that you only meant well?
Well, of course you did
Mmmm, whatcha say (whatcha say)?
Mmmm, that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm, whatcha say?
Mmmm, that you only meant well?
Well, of course you did
Mmmm, whatcha say (whatcha say)?
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say?
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
