Time keeps slipping away, and I'd hate to say,
I never tried to read your eyes so Please, take a seat next to me,
Find a place you can be yourself, there's no one else
Just a face in the crowd, have to scream out loud, your everything I need,
Don't know what to say, all I know is feel this way,
Can't you hear my heart scream

Crying out loud, your breaking down
I've thought of this moment a million times, how can I get this right,
Waiting for your eyes to find me here, practiced my part almost everyday,
Every word you might say, and now here we are.
Time keeps slipping away, and I'd hate to say all this time

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and is my number one played song on my ipod.

    For me, the song is about a person trapped in the norm and the ongoing cycle of everyday life. This person goes on living unnoticed by the people who once meant the world to him or her. The lyrics as a whole are pretty selfexplanitory, but still.. i've lost track of the amount of times i've wanted to shout "can you hear me?" outloud to the people i thought meant everything to me. Hah, "Just a face in the crowd" seems to describe the way I feel perfectly. I mean, surely I'm not the only one who can go to school put on this huge happy act to please "the friends" and every desperate sign of help thats thrown out to them is casted away without second thought? I don't know, bad day sorry for that tangent but sadly i'm sure other people can relate to the emotional ignorance of others.

    General CommentI can relate to you, and like you said, i'm sure everyone else can too. The song to me is more about a single girl in this guy's life that really meant a lot to him. He's regretting that he isn't doing all he can do for him and her and he's becoming "just a face in the crowd" to her and he doesn't know how to tell her how he feels.
