I don't know who you are
And I don't know where you've been
Always out on your own
Always down on your knees

(Refrain):

Now you know
I need a miracle
A star-crossed lover
An arrow in my heart
I need a rainy day
And an endless summer
A pocket full of stars

Ooooooouh

Ooooooouh

Maybe you're just like me
You see the faces in the crowd
Looking down at their feet
Never once make a sound

(Refrain) x2:

Now you know
I need a miracle
A star-crossed lover
An arrow in my heart
I need a rainy day
And an endless summer
A pocket full of stars

    I think the refrain is trying to express the feeling of dispair and emptyness of someone that has lost himself, that doesn't know which path to follow because everything seems already lost... This lyric makes me cry... So beautifull and s sad... :')

    What does he mean with this verse here...?

    Maybe you are just like me
    You see the faces in the crowd
    Looking down at their feet
    Never once make a sound...

    It's about a guy looking for love. The lines 'i don't know who you are, i don't know where you've been' imply that he hasn't got anyone in particular, but it just looking for someone to love.

    To me, this song reminds me of my brother. Ever since he has become a part of the "bad crowd" i dont even know who he is. The first four lines just sum it up, i guess..

    To me it seems to be about recovering from lost love. Or it could be about being done with problem after problem.
