Dave Loggins – Crowd Of Lonely People Lyrics

Downtown, hangin’ around, walkin’ streets up and down
Goin’ nowhere, always gettin’ there
Watchin’ faces, in my mind, I’m tradin’ places
Tailored suits and ties, livin’ someone else’s life
Everything was alright ’til I looked through my own eyes

And I saw sidewalks lined with heartache
And I saw pain (I saw pain), yes, I saw pain (I saw pain)
I saw a field day comin’ for the undertaker
And I saw flames (I saw flames), yes, I saw flames (I saw flames)
Well, I saw hatred and I saw fear
I saw a man of God and I asked him, “How do I get outta here?”

Outta this crowd of lonely people
Oh, I need to get outta this crowd of lonely people
Of lonely people

Window shoppin’, dreamin’, seldom stoppin’, thinkin’
Just how good it is, this lucky life I live
Troubled souls abound, what am I doin’ downtown?
Drownin’ in a sea of footsteps gasping for my breath
Teardrops to the rooftops of loneliness

And I saw sidewalks lined with heartache

But I saw no faith and trust (Saw no faith), tell me (Where’s that trust?)
Yes, I saw mannequins posing as women and men
But I saw no love (Saw no love), now tell me, where is that love?
Well, I saw failure, I saw frustration
And I got frightened and I got to find myself some transportation

Outta this crowd of lonely people
Oh, I need to get outta this crowd of lonely people
Of lonely people

(Gotta get out) Mmm-hmm
(Gotta get out) Yes, I do
(Lonely people) Oh my
(Lonely crowd) I have to be leaving
(Gotta get out) Well, I have to go
(Gotta get out) I have to save what little happiness
(Lonely people) Is left inside this soul
(Lonely crowd)

I saw hatred, well, I saw many a wasted year
Saw a man of God and I asked him, “Help me (Help me) outta here”

Outta this crowd of lonely
Outta this crowd, whoa
I need to get on outta this crowd of lonely people
Of lonely people
