Her gaze was intense, something made her smile.
The way her hair hung down, a bit of blond and brown,
I thought that for sure, this girl's just my style.
I was set to make a move, yeah, I had a decent plan.
But she kept looking down
At the little black phone in her hand.

She was looking DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.
Less talking out loud,
She's part of the crowd
That looks DOWN.

I stood there a while, waiting for my chance,
Not wanting to intrude and interrupt her mood.
In one moment more, I might get a glance.
But she was too involved, having messages to send.
I left, but wonder still,
What was lost not making that new friend?

She was looking DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.
Less talking out loud,
She's part of the crowd
That looks DOWN.

Does the art of conversation need a savior?
All around us we can see this behavior.
It was only the other day
I saw a couple in a café.
With a sandwich in his left hand,
He was texting with his right.
It looked as if she didn't mind,
Didn't think it impolite.


He was looking DOWN, DOWN, DOWN,
Accessing the cloud,
He's part of the crowd
That looks DOWN.

Yeah, they're part of the crowd
That looks DOWN.
So many looking
