    I would be amazed if someone can tell me what song I am talking about considering I remember so little of it.

    It's a very slow, acoustic song. Creepy even... I think I might have heard it on "Without a Trace" once.

    I think it has the following lyrics somewhere in it (I know I really don't know much):


    Scary faces...

    Familiar places...

    And I...


    Thanks for endulging my lunacy! =)

    I'd have to listen to the song again, but it sounds like "Mad World" by Gary Jules, also used in the movie Donnie Darko.

    What Eric said. Here are the lyrics to Mad World originally done by Tears for Fears.

    All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places
    Worn out faces
    Bright and early for the daily races
    Going no where
    Going no where
    Their tears are filling up their glasses
    No expression
    No expression
    Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow
    No tomorrow
    And I find I kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles its a very very
    Mad world
    Mad world
    Children waiting for the day they feel good
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    And I feel the way that every child should
    Sit and listen
    Sit and listen
    Went to school and I was very nervous
    No one knew me
    No one new me
    Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
    Look right through me
    Look right through me
    And I find I kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles its a very very
    Mad world
    Mad world
    Enlarging your world
    Mad world

    mad world is a good choice, but is it acoustic?

    It's just piano and a cello with Gary singing. There's definitely something to be said for controlled producers.

    There's two versions. I heard the slow, acoustic one on radio and said, "who did a Tears for Fears remake?".

    I like the original version better.
