(These words were up for grabs on Theme Music back in December, and 
initially I had them going with an angsty acoustic-Nirvana sort of thing, but 
then they fell into place with this tune.)

Woman in a crowd and you're all alone
I keep hanging round in case you throw a bone
to me but I remember, it's me who's underground
or so I think it's where you're gonna keep me

Wondering and blundering and moving through the mud
Crashing into all the different things I should have done
You found a way to kill a friend that doesn't shed no blood
No sweat for you and certainly no weeping

Half of what you say to me 
is meaningless 
your art amiss

Woman in a crowd but you'll be leaving soon
Carrying a secret. It bruises like a stone that
might not be so heavy if you'd only set it down
I keep try'n to tell you I can still hear 

echoes of a language that was once a home we shared
laughter of the times we abandoned truth for dare
They will both catch up to you when you are least aware
I just wanna tell you how I fear now

Half of what I say to you
is meaningless 
my heart amiss

(God I miss you)

There's no end
there's no end
No end to this crowd
where you won't say out loud
how you feel

Woman in a crowd and you're far off as the moon
Making me so tiny from high atop your throne
You don't have the courtesy to even take atonement
You must think your blood is pretty blue

Cross me off as you write up an ending oh so clean
blotting out all memory until you're quite serene
Well I got news for you my icy little queen
It's my loss but I am your loss too

More than half of what we say
is meaningless 
It's hard to miss

God I miss you

Run along now
