"Million Faces" as written by and Paolo Giovanni/benbrook Nutini....
Oh the phone you know it never stops, it's the last thing I hear at night
And the first thing in the morning.
And as I start to let it burn my head, you slowly creep into bed,
And I'm done with all the talking,
You say you know how I'm feeling, I just need to try to settle down.

Oh a million faces pass my way.
Oh they're all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around.
Oh who knows just what the future holds
All I want to know is if it's with you.

Tired as hell and falling up the stairs, filled with a thousand cares,
As you walk out from the bedroom
Though it feels like all my fire has gone, girl you just turn me on.
Can't believe how much I want you
You say you know how I'm feeling, I just need to try to settle down.

Oh a million faces pass my way.
Oh they're all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around.
Oh who knows just what the future holds
All I want to know is if it's with you.

We're distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make
Let us throw them in the ocean, let it wash our cares away.
On the phone you know it never stops, it's the last thing I hear at night.
And the first thing in the morning

Oh a million faces pass my way.
Oh they're all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around.
Oh who knows just what the future holds
All I want to know is if it's with you.

We're distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make
Let us throw them in the ocean, let it wash our cares away.
We're distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make.
Let us throw them in the ocean, let it wash our cares away.

Let it wash our cares away, let it wash our cares away.

    General CommentI agree with MascaraTears. It's about confusion in a relationship. In my mind, it's about a couple that have or are on the road to breaking up.

    "Oh the phone you know it never stops, it's the last thing i hear at night
    And the first thing in the morning."

    Possibly people trying to console him?

    The whole talk about seeing a million faces pass him by and the fact that they're all the same... To me that refers to how unique this girl is.

    "We're distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make"

    Their relationship probably focused on negative things whilst ignoring the positives.

    Just a few of my thoughts...

    General Commenti think it may be somewhat about be board with either the realationship, friends, family and life in general. he is feeling everything is set out and everything is repetitive.

    "Oh a million faces pass my way.
    Oh they're all the same, nothing seems to change anytime i look around."

    General CommentI believe that this song is about a man who is confused in his relationship. The couple seems to focus on the negative and all of the bad stuff. He doesn't know if they will make it, but he wants it to work out. He wants them to clean themselves of all of the bad stuff and all of the worries and just start fresh.
