about

A song about someone who is living one life wishing he was living another. Let's say, a failed musician, having to be the ordinary working man while he watches others hit the big time.

lyrics

One more day as I am,
Is not a sacrifice in itself.
It's just another dream on hold,
Gathering dust on a shelf.
I put it to the back of my mind,
Save it for a better day.
The one that I'm praying for,
As I drive home through the rain.

I'm just another face in the crowd,
Living under a cloud.
I'm just another insomniac.

One more day on the road,
Soon be home with my dutiful wife.
I know how hard she tries,
To fill the void that's in my life.
I can pretend that things are ok,
And bottle it all up inside,
But she'll get the blame someday,
For what I feel I've been denied.

I'm just another face in the crowd,
Living under a cloud.
I'm just another insomniac,
Papering over the cracks.

One more day for 'dear ol' dad',
One kid has now become two.
And I tell my wife everything,
'Cept what I think and do.
And in a house full of people,
I'm in a world of my own,
Completely surrounded,
But completely alone.

I'm just another face in the crowd,
Living under a cloud.
I'm just another insomniac.
I'm just another face in the crowd,
Living under a cloud.
I'm just another insomniac,
Papering over the cracks,
Hiding the things that I lack.
You stole from me,
Give it back, give it back, give it back.

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
