A face in the crowd on your wedding day
You tossed me a rosebud from your bridal bouquet
No one seemed to notice no one wondered why
When you pledged your love to him there were tears in my eyes.
A face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose
Your gown of white satin my half-worn-out clothes
I knew your love one time but your love now he holds
I’m a face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose.
As your friends they all kissed you I heard someone say
The man with the rosebud from your bridal bouquet
Was he kind of special or was he just a friend
I heard you speak softly he was only a friend.
