Michael Martin Murphey – A Face In The Crowd lyrics

There are people everywhere
Who'd give everything that they own for someone to care
Lonely faces without names
Caught in an endless circle of empty games

The shadows grow so dark
On the light of a lonely heart
But lying here in your arms, oh how I shine

It's hard to be just a face in the crowd
Knowing that I'm loved by you
When the whole wide world is narrowed down
Baby it just takes two
People as far as I can see
When you're walking next to me
My feet don't even touch the ground
It's hard to be a face in the crowd
Hard to be a face in the crowd

I have been fooled so many times
In a world of hello's and goodbye's where love's hard to find
Then you brought magic into my life
There was never a doubt in my mind
I knew it was right
Now I'm no longer just a face
A runner in a lonely race
The tears have all been replaced, you make me smile

Repeat Chorus

Just yesterday I used to feel so small
Didn't count at all

Repeat Chorus

Face in the crowd
Face in the crowd
Face in the crowd
Face in the crowd
