Johnny Rzeznik has received 47 repins on my Pinterest “Men as Art” board, as well as 9 comments.  That’s more than my pins of Johnny DeppBon Jovi and Tom Brady combined.  What makes this guy so special?  In honor of his popularity, natural good looks and talent, I am featuring a Goo Goo Dolls song in this weeks lyric’s discussion.  Let’s look at the lyrics of one of my favorites, Iris.

*Iris by John Rzeznik

And I’d give up forever to touch you

Cuz 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

Cuz 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

Cuz 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’d bleed just to know you’re alive

And I don’t want the world to see me

Cuz 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

Cuz 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

Cuz 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

Johnny Rzeznik comes across as not only a great looking guy but more importantly a “good guy”.  When you read about him and his life you can’t help but agree.  I think that’s why his songs resonate the way they do.  He is “real” and he’s magnificent.

What I love about this song and it’s lyrics:

I love the lyrics in their entirety so it’s very difficult to choose favorite lyrics in this one.  If I had to choose I would say the first line of the song says it all for me and someone saying they’d “give up forever to touch you” is so beyond romantic.

*This live video was made when the Goo Goo Dolls came back home to Buffalo in 2004 for a free show with 60,000 of their closest fans.  That night Buffalo had one of the greatest downpours they’ve ever had but Johnny refused to stop playing. He said they’d play until the rain stopped and they did.  What a loyal musician to his equally loyal fans.  Impressive I think.
