The Re-envisioning of “You’re not the Only One”

I’ve set out to rerecord/re-envision my favorite of my released songs: You’re not the Only One (recorded in 1999).

The recording will start next week. Right now I’m letting my fingers learn the riffs on my guitar (it was originally composed on my Roland JX-305).

I’m really, really working to keep the track count to a minimum so it may sound much more simple compared to the 1999 original.

If any musicians want to join me in this project I’d be very happy to have you as there’s already a model for the vision.

Feel free to listen to the original.

I have no set date to when I’ll be done with it (such is Music!), but I’ll keep you posted.

Here are the Lyrics:

(Sample: “Listen to them… children of the night… what music they make”, Bela Lugosi, Dracula (1931))

Are thirsting for attention?

Are searching for dissension?

Are you seeding your temptations?

Are you meeting your expectations?

(Chorus)

Of all the pain you feel inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

of all the shame you conceal inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

Are you teeming with frustration?

Are you feeling your sensation?

Are you wishing death’s vacation?

Are you seeking termination?

(Chorus)

Of all the pain you feel inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

of all the shame you conceal inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

(bridge/solo)

You don’t know anything about this life!

How can there be happiness with so much strife?

Be wary of the shadow and don’t stray too far.

My creature of light… that’s who you are!

(Chorus)

Of all the pain you feel inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

of all the shame you conceal inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

(bridge 2)

You’re not the only one!

You’re not the only one!

You’re not the only one!

You’re not the only one!

Just like the only one……

(Chorus)

Of all the pain you feel inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one

of all the shame you conceal inside

You’ve gotta know you’re not the only one
