"I Don't Do Crowds" as written by Tracyanne Campbell, Kenneth John Mckeeve, John Henderson, Lindsay Boyd, Gavin James Mcgregor Dunbar and Lee Alexander Thomson....
I'd like to have company during thunderstorms
I'd like you to fall for me but it would soon turn lousy and wrong
I meant what I said, all I want is to be one of the best

Been getting some extra help from a special band
Oh yeah they've been helping us out
And we're thankful they're lending a hand
Here is my request: play the ones that we all know best

I don't do crowds, everyone put it down to rudeness
I laughed out loud, could they all see that it was madness?
Please come to save me from myself again,
To shield me to disguise that my heart has a secret
And this will make you sigh, and me cry

Oh will there be dancing in the hall tonight?
Cause if there is dancing I won't lack fight
It seems I'm less afraid of life itself than of what you see

You turned the heads of every boy and girl alike
Would you have them all if there were enough hours in the night?
You took care of your skin,
Sure did help but it didn't solve everything

I don't do crowds, everyone put it down to rudeness
I laughed out loud, could they all see that it was madness?
Please come to save me from myself again,
To shield me to disguise that my heart has a secret
And this could make you sigh, and me cry

I find it funny that you never even knew
All the times when I stole a look from you
Oh what's in my mind
Oh they're gonna put me away this time

    General CommentI think this person prefers intimacy because she feels umm... intimate? I guess it's the "my heart has a secret" part. She doenst want to go out and party with a bunch of people because she's got a secret, she wants to be alone or with someone cose rather than go out with a bunch of people who would rather dance and chat and laugh and could care less about her heart's secret.
    And everyone puts it dow to rudeness, sadly. Because really she's not being mean... she just doesn't do crowds

    General CommentI'd like to think of this song as my theme song. The melody makes you feel like your floating on a cloud, while the words are really down to earth.
    The verses about the bands are contradictory to the rest of the lyrics. It's saying that there are people out there that will try to help you and probably not judge you like everyone else-like the "crowd."
    I think the chorus of this song means that she doesn't really like to be around a lot of people since they all think she's a little out there. But it's almost like she doesn't care. People think shes rude and keeps to herself. She's saying that shes just crazy. She likes a guy (a part of the crowd? another reason for not liking them?) but she thinks he might think shes pretty crazy too so instead of just telling him, she again, keeps to herself. Shes afraid that the guy (or girl) will just sigh and not feel the same so to keep herself from crying, she keeps her hearts secret a secret.
    She continues to describe how wanted the guy is and how everyone just loves him, and how he never noticed how much she liked him even when it was obvious.
    Umm, i think i got that right.
