Take me in, take me home

So in the midst of all my crazy political blogging I find I am completely, utterly and inordinately in love with Lonely No More from Clay's new album A Thousand Different Ways. His voice on that song just soars! It's the one that's most often in my head when I wake up in the morning, and likely as not it's stll in my head as I go to sleep at night. I crank it up on the stereo at work when everyone else has gone home, and sing along to my heart's content. It's utterly, utterly gorgeous.

If you can handle the sight of homeless puppies and kittens, there's a beautiful (and very sad) montage up on YouTube called Homeless Pets - Lonely No More - bring a hanky - it made me cry. I hope it encourages someone to adopt a homeless pet - and maybe buy a Clay CD while they are at it! Heh. Here it is....



And here are the lyrics:

Lonely No More
From the CD A Thousand Different Ways by Clay Aiken, 2006
Written by Andreas Carlsson, Samuel Waermo, Mimmi Waermo and Clay Aiken
Produced by Andreas Carlsson and Samuel Waermo


Another dream, another day
I've seen too many fade away
So if you wonder how to make it right
Give me everything, everything tonight

'cause I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to feel empty no more
Only you could unbreak this heartache I've carried around
Don't want to be lonely no more, no more

Take me in, take me home
I can't stand to be alone
Help me paint the picture of my life
Don't you disappear and leave me here tonight

'cause I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to feel empty no more
Only you could unbreak this heartache I've carried around
Don't want to be lonely no more, no more

Can't make no sense of life
No matter how I've tried
'cause something's missing in my heart
Tonight

I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to feel empty no more
Only you could unbreak this heartache I've carried around
Don't want to be lonely no more, no more

I don't want to be lonely no more
I don't want to feel empty no more
Only you could unbreak this heartache I've carried around
Don't want to be lonely no more, no more
No more

You're right, it's a beautiful song. But have you heard the song he wrote the lyrics to that *isn't* on the CD? It's called LOVER ALL ALONE, and it's only available from iTunes download. It's absolutely gorgeous. Here are the lyrics:

Composer: Clay Aiken & David Foster - 2006


LOVER ALL ALONE

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 its all just a waiting game
wanna share my everything

And on my own
its 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
its 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 ok

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

And on my own
its 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
its harder still it seems
to be a lover all alone without love

And on my own
its 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
its 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
