ANASTASIA the Musical - In a Crowd of Thousands Lyrics


"In a Crowd of Thousands" is a song from Anastasia performed by Derek Klena (Dmitry) and Christy Altomare (Anya).

DMITRY
It was June
I was ten
I still think of that day
Now and then
A parade
And a girl
And a crowd of thousands
She sat straight
As a queen
Only eight
But so proud and serene
How they cheered
How I stared
In that crowd of thousands
Then I started to run
And to call out her name
As the crowd on the road went wild
I reached out with my hand
And looked up
And then she smiled
The parade
Traveled on
With the sun in my eyes
She was gone
But if I were still ten
In that crowd of thousands
I’d find her again

ANYA (spoken)
You’re making me feel I was there too.

DMITRY (spoken)
Maybe you were. Make it part of your story.

ANYA
A parade

DMITRY
A parade

ANYA
Passing by

DMITRY
Passing by

ANYA
It was hot
Not a cloud in the sky
Then a boy
Caught my eye

BOTH
In a crowd of thousands

ANYA
He was thin
Not too clean
There were guards
But he dodged in between
Yes he made himself seen
In that crowd of thousands
Then he called out my name
And he started to run
Through the sun and the heat
In the crowd
I tried not to smile
But I smiled
And then he bowed

DMITRY (spoken)
I didn’t tell you that.

ANYA (spoken)
You didn’t have to. I remember!

BOTH
The parade
Traveled on
With the sun in my eyes
You were gone
But I knew
Even then
In a crowd of thousands
I’d find you again

DMITRY (spoken)
Your highness.
