On my Own

"On my Own" is an eerie and mysterious alternative rock track that breathes the atmosphere of the music that was made in the famous CBGB Club in NYC. 

A place where famous bands like the Talking Heads, Patti Smith Group, Blondie and Tom Verlaine's Television performed. A very arty place. 

Originally Long Tall J created the music for "On my Own" as a tribute to the Dutch rock group "The Scene" who's famous singer "Thé Lau" passed away in June 2015. He tried to locate a Dutch singer who could create vocals to the Dutch lyrics he wrote but it didn't work out. 

Singer "Amariia" came to the rescue as she created the melody for "On my Own" using phonetic singing. Long Tall J wrote the lyrics and fitted the words to the melody and this way the second cooperation between them became a fact. Their first cooperation was for the song "Time" back in January 2019.

The lyrics of "On my Own" are about a strong woman who is breaking free from a for her "too standard" relationship although she is still emotionally attached to her partner. 

The end of the song consists of the sound of a barn door opening and closing and a person running away while we hear thunder and rain. It symbolises the new life that the character of "On my Own" is starting. 

The music was recorded in the home studio of Long Tall J in London and the vocals were recorded, mixed and mastered by producer Ivan Luzan in Kyiv, Ukraine. 

Lyrics:

Keep the lights on
Now and never knowing where to go!
Never wanted to belong

Down the highway
Lightning speed is all that he will know
He never ran

And never fire is to blame
And never find a way to say
And to say

How to find my heart to break
How to kill that burning heart break
Being loving loving loving loving

I can get all the love and fun now that you want
Lot of the likes you want
I can get excited excited how just on my own
I can do all the likes I want
And am getting the likes I want
All on my own

Lies
When will he see what I feel
Falling in love it ain't right
You want to see me falling down baby rise
You the courage
Holds the light up brightly now
Got to see it through

I can get all the love and fun now that you want
Lot of the likes you want
I can get excited excited how just on my own
I can do all the likes I want
And am getting the likes I want
All on my own

Gonna keep on loving living true
Yes I know

I love just all that he wants I want
All that he wants I want
Want to see me loving baby yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah

You're hurting and burning and loving
Hundred times I guess you knew
I guess you knew
Oh baby loving
