Another Face in The Crowd

He started in a little bar, on the west end of town
It was his very first show, when he saw her in the crowd
She was dancing in the front to music she didn't even know
And was back a few days later to enjoy the same show
He watched her from the stage; glade to see her there
Sang directly to her, 'cause no one seemed to care
Soon they started talking and then became good friends
She promised the support, he said he'd cherish to the end

He wants to be a Rockstar, he wants to live the life
'Wants to hear his voice soar from the stage every night
Now he's got a fan and he knows that it's a start
He'll do anything he can just to keep her in his heart

Next thing he knows, he's playing every night
The crowds are getting bigger and she's falling out of sight
He lands a big record deal and they move him down south
Less then a year later his first CD comes out
Next thing she knows, he's all over tv,
All over radio and on the front of every magazine
A few months pass and his headlining tour kicks off
She hurries to buy a ticket knowing they'll sell out

Now he's a Rockstar, they say he's got it made
When he's behind his mic, he's king of the stage
He's got millions of fans and it's the same in every town
She means nothing to him, she just a face in the crowd

She makes it to a show, she's surrounded by new faces
Standing among his fans, she now feels out of place
Listens to them talk, like they've known him all their lives
Tries not to laugh 'cause she knows they're sharing lies
She looks up from the crowd as he finally hits the stage
The man she used to know, now doesn't know her name
He's looking straight at her, but she isn't who he sees
Another face in the crowd is all she's going to be...

Now he's a Rockstar, they say he's got it made
When he's behind his mic, he's king of the stage
He's got millions of fans and it's the same in every town
She means nothing to him, she's just a face in the crowd

One of his first, one of his few now forgotten somehow
She means nothing to him, she's just a face in the crowd
Part of his career, part of his old life, a part of the past now
She means nothing to him, she's just another face in the crowd
Means nothing to him... Another face in the crowd.
