"Anonymous" as written by Lindy Robbins and Fraser Smith....
[Verse 1:]
For a minute it was looking like
I'd end up one of those guys,
spendin my whole life
looking for a special lady who'd save me
maybe i'll never be satisfied
had a couple ? and a couple dimes.
(Now I'm looking for you,) why are you so hard to find

[Hook:]
I thought I took one step, I took two back
I'm not even close this time and that's a fact
All I know is that we'd be the perfect match
So where you at love?
I just gotta find you here.

[Chorus:]
I wanna know, I wanna know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I gotta know, I gotta know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
Baby I want you so much
Wanna hold wanna feel your touch
Go fast girl i'm in a rush
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I wanna know, I gotta know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?

[Bridge:]
What's your name? (Anonymous)
Where you at? (Anonymous)
Think about you I getta a rush
I wanna meet my miss Anonymous.

[Verse 2:]
Then I see you when I close my eyes we all on both times with the delay to sunlight.
Everything I tried to tell you I fell to maybe I'll tell you another time.
How you keeping me so free I get tied.
Gotta strung all on me and aim me, oh nevermind.

[Hook]
I thought I took one step, I took two back
I'm not even close this time and that's a fact
All I know is that we'd be the perfect match
So where you at love?
I just gotta find you here.

[Chorus:]
I wanna know, I wanna know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I gotta know, I gotta know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
Baby I want you so much
Wanna hold wanna feel your touch
Go fast girl i'm in a rush
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I wanna know, I wanna know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?

[Bridge:]
What's your name? (Anonymous)
Where you at? (Anonymous)
Think about you I getta a rush
I wanna meet my miss Anonymous. [x2]

[Verse 3:]
Is your name Mary Anne
or Cathy Lee
Wanna hold my hand? come get with me
Which dime wanna ride
everything on me
girl you aint gotta lie
Tell me what its gone be

I gotta know... (I gotta know) [x7]

[Chorus:]
I wanna know, I wanna know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I gotta know, I gotta know your name (your name)[x2]
Why you gotta be anonymous?
Baby I want you so much
Wanna hold wanna feel your touch
Go fast girl i'm in a rush
Why you gotta be anonymous?
I wanna know, I wanna know your name (your name 2x)
Why you gotta be anonymous?

[Bridge:]
What's your name? (Anonymous)
Where you at? (Anonymous)
Think about you I getta a rush
I wanna meet my miss Anonymous. [x2]

    General CommentThis is such a good chill out song, or just to listen to when your hanging out with people. Basically to me it's just about him having a crush on a beautiful girl but he's never had a chance to ask her name.

    General CommentDoesn't the background remind anyone of Justin Timberlake's "My Love" except a really edited version? This song is a little ripped off.....

    General CommentHaha, I love this song. I guess what thi song means to me, is basically he's at some party, trying to find his perfect match. (I saw the music video for it, and I'll describe it a little.) A girl blindfolds him, and takes him to a room where it's private. They, uhhh, make out, and soon after, he wants to know who she is, what she's all about, and where she is. And he knows it's his perfect match, and in the end, he's looking for her, trying to find that someone. It's a great song, but the video is kind of weird.... I mean, that girl takes him to the kitchen, and feeds him all kinds of food whil he's blindfolded, and she was holding chocolate syrup in her hand, so it was kind of funny. But over all that, it's a good song/video.

    General CommentYou have got it all wrong, the song is not about a girl he has a crush on and your stupid if you think the music video presents a valid meaning of the song. It's about him trying to find the right girl in his life and how he always thinks he is going n the right path but he isn't
    'I thought I took one step, I took two back'
    Miss anonymous refers to the girl he desires, 'I wanna meet my miss Anonymous.' It is not about a specific girl, it is about finding the right girl (Miss anonymous.)

    General CommentI agree with Swifty... this song has a deeper meaning than most hip hop songs - Its really a true pleasure!

    I think that line with the question mark is "Had a couple diamonds had a couple dimes"

    makes sense to me.
