All By Myself
on: May 10, 2020, 21:02:17
Hi Everyone.............I'm new to the site.......wondering how you all work it. I have a tune that I wrote about ten years ago, in which Mr. Paul Battersby did a total make over on. Tell me what you think.....all thoughts and comments are appreciated, and first impressions are most welcome. Thanks in advance, and look forward to listening to the music here.

"All By Myself"

Written by Tom Tognaci
Tom Tognaci - Guitars, Vocals
Paul Battersby - Orchestral strings, Bass, Percussions

I deal with the loneliness like combing fresh cut hair   
I convince myself that Iím alright 
I can deal with the solitude and the echo from upstairs   
Now that the ghost is gone, Iím alright
   
Iíd rather be alone and by myself
Than to be alone, while being with someone else
All by myself...stowed way up high on some dusty shelf
All by myself...just me, an island, unto itself   

Some nights I reminisce back and forth in this old chair   
Is it worth the lament...is it really fair?   
Black and blue is the emptiness with a woman who canít care   
One thing that stands out, now, completely clear
 
Iíd rather be alone and by myself
Than to be alone, while being with someone else
All by myself...stowed way up high on some dusty shelf
All by myself...just me, an island, unto itself

Some nights I reminisce back and forth in this old chair   
Is it worth the lament...is it really fair? 
All I need is my poetry and the music that I play   
To stretch these untamed wings and fly away
I Know The Truth By My Struggle Against It

Hi.

It's a very good song.
Sounds like a classic.
Ticks all the boxes, very easy to relate to, easy on the ear.

There's a country twang to it that I don't care for, most others will  though.

I've heard some of your tracks before. You're so Damn talented!
All the best!

What a great sounding tune @IronKnee . Well written and well recorded. You really do create a specific atmosphere with the way you produced this song.
