I would like to propose a toast
to each of you who I don't know
who hide behind the lights
I bet that you're alright.

And I would like to say hello
to each of you who I don't know
but we'll probably pass on by
I guess that that's alright.

I bet one of you out there's just like me
and we could hit it off if the fates agree
but we'll probably never meet
tell me that's alright.

But if by chance we meet on the street
and you remember me
and I don't know your name or face
please tell me that's alright.

'Cause when I'm standing up here
and I'm pouring out my story
and you hear the best of me
in my favorite words,
And you learn my hopes,
And you learn my soul,
I don't get to learn about you at all.

But I know
I can hear you singing
And I know
I can see you dancing
And I know
I can feel you smiling
But I know
That I don't know your name

I would like to think that I could be
a bigger man than celebrities
and extend my hand to those who
seem to be alright.

But it's hard when the lights are all on me
to find a face in the endless sea
of people staring back at me
just tell me that's alright.

'Cause when I'm standing up here
and I'm pouring out my story
and you hear the best of me
in my favorite words,
and you learn my hopes,
and you learn my soul,
I don't get to learn about you at all

But I know
I can hear you singing
And I know
I can see you dancing
And I know
I can feel you smiling
But I know
That I don't know your name.
