Story Behind the Song

Another version of my tune All of the Above. An unashamed bash at appealing to the lovers of simple tunes that concern Love or situations centered around Love.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very touching, soulful and unique approach to this topic. Instrumentation is ideal for this piece. All in all a very good and original work.

    - MGB

Every now and then you hear something that is so starkly original, you just want to say WOW. This is one of those songs. It's a story; it's a ballad inspired by a picture on the wall of a lounge (great entry point) and the songwriter goes on to tell a poignant tale of loneliness and longing in such a creative way. I love the "all of the above" hook. I appplaud the honesty of the song and the surprise twist in the end when the guy takes his turn. The vocals are flawless; the effect on the voice was well-chosen...it added an ethereal element that was effective, but not overdone. This songwriter has the ability to paint a picture, tell a story that is instantly understandable, very believable and totally awesome. Great job!

Lyrics

On the lounge wall there hangs a picture
With too many tales to tell
and the eyes they will deceive you
For on a lonely night in May she found
the arms of another
Found someone to take away her pain

He said are you lonely are you longing
He said do you cry when you go to sleep at night
She said I am many things I am in need of love
I am just a woman I am all of the above

The children's voices they tell a story
He gets home late every night
with the scent of another
Broken dreams they drift away to a place
out of reach
too late to save the day too late

He said are you lonely are you longing
He said do you cry when you go to sleep at night
She said I am many things I am in need of love
I am just a woman I am all of the above

She asked him if he's guilty
She asked him if he cared
She asked him if he cheated
She asked him whose bed he's shared
She asked him if he's in love
She said she'd had enough

He said I am lonely I am longing
He said that he cries when he goes to sleep at night
He said I am many things I'm in need of love
I am just a man I am all of the above

He said I am lonely I am longing
He said that he cries when he goes to sleep at night
He said I am many things I'm in need of love
I am just a man I am all of the above
