A Lover All Alone


As I was aimlessly browsing the Internet yesterday, trying to mitigate the boredom I was feeling while doing my blunt office work, I bumped into a Clay Aiken-dedicated blog. Reading along the blog's top entry, I found out this new song of Clay entitled "Lover All Alone". The author's blog opined that it's the best song in Clay's latest album, noting that most of the song is written by the artist. Intrigued by such comment, not to mention by the title of the song, I started downloading the song from a reliable source. Soon enough, in minutes, I got a clear copy of it. The song went...

Maybe I've convinced myself
I've really been in love
And I've been wrong
All along

For all I know
The feeling and the picture
That I've tried
So hard to find
Isn't mine

Could be
It's all just a waiting game
Wanna share my everything

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
This love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone
Without love

Picking up the pieces makes me wonder if
I only build it all
To watch it fall
The faster it can go away it means the less of me
Is gone to stay
And I'm okay

But lonesome tomorrow comes anyway
I'm alone for another day,
Another day

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
That this love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone
Without love

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
That this love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone
Without love
A lover all alone
Without love

Maybe I've convinced myself
I've really been in love
But I've been wrong
All along

Listening to it, I was set aback, touched and speechless, as soon as the first line of the song went through my ears and into my psyche, I told myself "This is my song!".

Lover All Alone is truly hauntingly beautiful. Clay remarkably exudes the emotions that the song wants to convey trivially because it's his song.

Clay surprises me a lot. I can't believe I'd be admiring him and his song this much. And I am simply surprised that such song that expresses myself is written by him. Thanks Clay for such a heartfelt meaningful song!

Drake, this is my most favorite Clay song so far. He wrote the lyrics and David Foster wrote the music. I cried the first time I heard it. Glad you can relate.
