"Downtown Song" as written by and Jason Pebworth Kevin M. Roentgen....
Hey uptown girl,
Can you hear this downtown song'
Wrote a couple of words to tell you
Right here is where you belong.

I watch you walk the streets,
Wondering who you're thinking of.
Hope you're looking for someone to hold
And not at all in love.

And I wonder if you can relate
To nights upon my pillowcase
Eyes wide open, middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind.

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

I keep asking myself
If our hands were meant to be
I know this town is busy,
But I live on Public Street

We can get out of here
If only for just tonight
Ride like some rolling stone
That's forced to waste your life

And I wonder if you can relate
To nights upon my pillowcase
Eyes wide open, middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind.

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me

When I'm under (when I'm under)
Is it me you're thinking of'
With this light (get on your knees)
I pray you're not at all in love.
With someone else (with someone new)
With something other than me and you
Just wanna be where you are (Just where you are)
If ever you're lonely, I won't be far.

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by Anberlin. How can there not be any comments already? Oh well. This song is pretty self-explanatory. But it always makes me wonder if there's some really sweet guy out there thinking of me, you know, who really loves me but just won't say it. Of course, it's not likely, but I can daydream, can't I? :-) but I love that line, "Just wanna be, just where you are, if ever you're lonely, I won't be far." I can't really say why I like it, it's just...passionate, you know? gahh. haha.

    General Commenti understand the entire song until he says

    "Eyes wide open, middle of the night/You’re the last thing on my mind."

    that part just makes me a little bit confused but other than that i love the whole Lost Songs album because i was surprised by how many i was missing

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG!!!!

    Anberlin is so frickin sweet.

    I just got their album "Lost Songs" and the minute I heard this song I fell in love. I heard they're getting a big contract with a recording company. Radio play is said to happen in a few months.

    General CommentOh goshhh.. This song..gives me hope in a sense. Sad huh? I know that I stay up thinking about boys, haha.


    And yeah I am pretty sure they signed onto Universal records, I hope they don't get on the radio, yeah that would be pretty stinkin frad. But I am afraid that they would change, or too many people would start listening. [I am thinking of Panic! at the disco, Relient K, The Fray....etc. Anberlin doesn't belong on that list.]

    General Commenttmal2, I think he's being sarcastic with that line. She's obviously what he is thinking about, he's just *saying* that he's not. I tend to do that a lot myself ;)
