about

“Sea of a Million Faces” – the version from Allison Crowe’s “Live at Wood Hall” double-album - is accompanied in the video here by scenes from “Of Human Bondage” - the 1934 film adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham’s novel starring actors Leslie Howard and, in her break-out role, Bette Davis. (Them there eyes are focus of another song.)

lyrics

Sea of A Million Faces

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I pulled a knife on myself today
I don’t know what I was thinking
All of these words trapped inside my head
I feel like I’ve been drinking

And I know you don’t want to see
Me this way...

In a sea of a million faces
I feel so alone
I only have you
to hold on to
So please don’t go, don’t go.

And so I walk through the moonlit streets
But the light evades me
Lost in the darkness of endless nights
I am cold and I’m afraid

and I wish that I could see...
you this way too...

In a sea of a million faces
I feel so alone

I only have you to hold on to
So please don’t go, don’t go

I would have crawled for ten thousand days
Just to get back to you
With dirty knees and a wind torn face
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do

And I don’t ever want

To see you this way...
