Glad You're Lonely Too w/ Alackbass, Paddler, and Scofugate


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I feel that this song speaks for itself, and that, perhaps the best course of action is to allow the listener to come to his or her own conclusions regarding what this song is about by listening with their heart.

Briefly, this song came about as a result of Andrew sending me an acoustic guitar track several months ago and asking me to have a go at writing lyrics for it. What poured out of me is likely my favorite of all of my lyrical works. Thank you, Andrew, for letting me be a part of this.

Thanks to Paddler and to Scofugate for their contributions of piano and drums respectively. Your parts made this song a production success.

Thank you to Andrew for the production. Andrew hunted down all performers and mixed the instrumental track. I mixed my vocals into his mix (after help from Sig) and did the final mastering of the track through Ozone.
Special thanks to Sigmund for his late night help in terms of the mess of a vocal track I almost posted. This was recorded back in the grasshopper days when I didn't even have a pop filter.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Lyrics
Lyrics

I feel ugly when you don't call
Sometimes I feel stupid for no good reason at all
so I'll sit here like a stone
'cause it feels good to be alone
and I'll wait for that phone to ring

'Cause I'm lonely
so lonely I can't breathe
and you told me that I was your queen
and I love you
more than I've a right to do, and that's why
I'm glad you're lonely too

I feel cheated when you're not home
sometimes I get so down that I can feel it in my bones
and it shouldn't mean that much to me
but I can feel you touching me
and it makes me feel like I'm home

CHORUS

Hold it in, hold it in, hold it in
my love, I'm gonna fall apart
hold it in, hold it in, hold it in,
my love, I'm gonna fall apart

And your silence hurts most of all
sometimes I feel useless and helpless and small
and I'd give everything I own
If you'd just come back home
so I'll wait for that phone to ring

Chorus

Stunning
What a performance this is. Powerful lyrics, beautiful melody and all the instruments are clean, clear and expertly played. Outstanding mix. But the vocal with all its velvety soft power is the outstanding element - as it should be. Congratulations to all involved!

On my third listen
and it is a beauty. Your heartfelt vocals are sweetly vulnerable and the lyrics are superb. The musicians backing you are, as usual for them, excellent, and the production is, again as usual, top notch. This SHOULD be on the radio: it makes my heart ache for you. (I hope he calls soon.)

Glad you're lonely too
Ahh you've come a long way, grasshopper! I'll not say how this song interprets to me as it's kinda personal but let's just say it provoked a response. Not sure it was a positive one but that's to do with me, not you. I think that's the mark of a truly great song when it affects you so much. Great work and you can't go wrong with the contributors you've got here! And stellar vocals as always. Really enjoyed this.

Strong structure. I like the parallel formatting of the verses (I feel ugly, I feel cheated). The chorus provides the emotional payoff for the verses which builds towards the hook in the last line. The bridge is a strong contrast both lyrically and musically to the rest of the song. Lovely vocal, and strong performances by the band. Polished production.

Thank you
To everyone who has listened and commented. I apologize for the lateness of my reply, but I've been working a lot and sleeping the rest of the time.

I really appreciate your kind words, and I'm so glad that this song resonated with people. That is the best part about being a musician: knowing that you've touched another person's heart.

Another dream band
There's a tender restraint in your voice like you don't want the entire flood of emotions to pour out all at once, trying to hang on to what keeps you going while still acknowledging your feelings. This to me makes your performance all the more endearing to me, making the emotional impact all the more human and something that touches each of us deeply from our own experience.

Performances on this one all round are again top notch, and Andrew's production (along with your mastering and Sig's emergency skills) shine in how it brings forth the best from each artist. Scott's drum work and Andrew on piano almost get missed since their work is so good it just works in supporting the vocal brilliantly. A second listen reveals the countless 'right' choices they each made and both are in the same head space as you are - like a shared emotion.

Thanks for the download! Be well,

Doug
