I'm alone and I'm cold
Just another number on another road
I'm alone and I'm cold
Just another number on another road
And I never knew my name
And I never knew my name

I'm alone and I'm cold
Just another number on another road
I'm alone and I'm cold
Just another number on another road

I get sucked in for hours
Over the smallest things, yeah
I get sucked in for hours
Bah dah, bah dah dah
Bah bah bah dah dah dah
Bah dah, bah dah dah
Bah bah dah dah dah dah

And I never knew my name
And I never knew my name

    General Commentthis song reminds me of when i went travelling on my own in europe

    "I'm alone and I'm cold
    Just another number on another road"
    And I never knew my name"

    says to me 'self discovery'

    one of my favourite cribs tunes

    General CommentWhen I first heard it I thought it was something to do with a car accident. And it was so bad they didnt recognise who it was, so "i never knew my name" would make sense. also i think they are given numbers if they are unidentifiable so that would make sense as well as being a road accident statistic. great song though =D

    General CommentI don't think the lyrics are about anything so complicated as a car crash. The song to me is about being lonely, nobody knowing who you are, passing you in the street and not noticing you.

    "Just another number on another road" explains the feeling of not being un-noticed.

    General CommentI'm alone, and I'm cold
    Just another number
    On another row
    And I never knew my name.

    I disappear for hours,
    Over the smallest things
    I disappear for house,
    Ba da ba da da ba ba
    Ba da da da
    Ba da ba da da ba ba
    Ba da da da

    And I never knew my name.
