You Are Not Alone

about

This song is my heartfelt mission statement of empathy. Recorded remotely in quarantine, sending files back and forth with my producer, Katie Marie, it is part of a larger album project still in progress. However, right at the start it was clear to me that I wanted to release this song as soon as possible in order to offer what comfort I could during these unprecedented times. May you take the message to heart - You are not alone.

lyrics

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

I can see salt water slipping from your eyes
I know the empty hollow in your bones
Your stomach is home to a hundred butterflies
and your chest is a cage full of stone

Today your bed's a prison
or maybe it's your mind
but everything seems useless
like you're running out of time

So if you can't find the stars
listen for the sound of my voice
I will sing you home
When you can't feel the ground beneath your feet
Take my hand
you are not alone, you are not alone
you are not alone, you're not alone

Well I've swum the underwater void, black and cold
and I've felt the devil's laughter grip my heart
I've been shaken so hard by the lies I was told
I thought that I might fall apart

And I have weathered the winters
that never seemed to end
Felt the world on my shoulders
and didn't break but bent

So if you can't find the stars
listen for the sound of my voice
I will sing you home
If you can't feel the ground beneath your feet
Take my hand
you are not alone, you are not alone
you are not alone, you're not alone

Well I've seen the clearest lakes
from the peak of a mountain
felt the sun on my face
as I tossed coins in a fountain
I've held a baby newly born
and I've grown food from seed
joined voices with a choir
taken care of those in need

so

If you can't find the stars
listen for the sound of my voice
I will sing you home
If you can't feel the ground beneath your feet
Take my hand
you are not alone, you are not alone
you are not alone, you're not alone

you are not alone, you are not alone
you are not alone, you're not alone
