Song lyrics: You’re not the only one

By MattReilly

Verse


Don’t look down, lift your chin


It feels tough at the moment


Things get under your skin


All feels hopeless and broken


 


[You will see


You’re not the only one.]


 


Verse


Try too hard to fit in


Always left on the outside


Feels like you never win


Nothing in which to feel pride


 


[Believe me


You’re not the only one.]


 


Verse


And you hold it all in


Find it too hard to confide


But don’t fear, I am here


Standing always by your side


 


Chorus


Oooh ohh ohh


When you feel like you’re done


You should know


You’re not the only one


 


You will see


When it all comes undone


Believe me


You’re not the only one


 


Verse


We’ll stand tall, face it all


Take the hard days in our stride


Me and you ‘gainst the world


Together we’ll have pride


 


Chorus


Oooh ohh ohh


When you feel like you’re done


You should know


You’re not the only one


 


You will see


When it all comes undone


You’re with me


You’re not the only one


 


We are free


We’ve only just begun


You’re with me


You’re not the only one


 


We are free


We’ve only just begun


You’re with me


You’re not the only one

So ... This is the first time I've ever consciously written lyrics for a song!


I've written poems before and thought: "Hmm, parts of that could work in a song."


But this is the first time I've ever sat down to write a song.


I had a very basic melody in my head for this as I was writing it, but that was mostly just to help me get the rhythm of it.


I'm not a musician, I'm a writer; and there are so many talented musicians here on HitRECord that I'd rather leave the music side to those who do it best.


I'd love to hear this turned into something more, so please feel free to use all or part of it to create a Hit RECord for HitRECord! ;D


All the best


Matt :)


p.s. As I'm a songwriting newbie, I've cobbled together verses and choruses in the way a child might. No feckin idea. Feel free to REmix into a proper song structure. And the bits in brackets, I hear those in my head sung by the backing choir (oh yeah, there's a full-on gospel-style choir in my head singing ... Don't know how they got in. They also sing the chorus, whereas the verses are solo.) Not sure if this postscript has helped or confused things even more ...
