Estratto da Dizzy Up The Girl (1998), Iris è senza ombra di dubbio il brano di maggior successo dei Goo Goo Dolls, gruppo rock alternativo statunitense. Sull’enigmatico nome della canzone, non citato nel testo, i fan si sono sbizzarriti: sono stati ipotizzati anche riferimenti mitologici e celesti, ispirati anche dal film City Of Angels, di cui il pezzo è colonna sonora. In realtà la scelta del titolo è stata pressochè casuale: letto su una rivista dal chitarrista John Rzeznik, a quest’ultimo piacque la sonorità del nome.

Verse:

        Bm7        A       G
And I'd give up forever to touch you
         Bm7           A           G
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
           Bm7        A           G
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
      Bm7           A             G    *riff 1*
And I don't want to go home right now

(verse)

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

Chorus:

(play verse part)
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

(play intro minus last Em7)

(verse)

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your life
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

(chorus)

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
