‘You’re Not Alone’ single
(Flying Snowman Records)
Loneliness is a stone-cold killer. Without friendship, we are scared creatures lost in our little bubble. We so desperately long to share feelings and experiences.
‘You’re not alone’ by Eric Geurts revolves around this theme. In a—at least at first hearing – winsome ballad with beautiful guitar lines and a lovely wobbling chorus, the lyrics tell about the need for friendship, love and compassion. In 1974, John Lennon sang: ‘Nobody loves you when you’re down and out.’ Lennon’s soul haunts this song, but unlike the rather cynical Lennon song, ‘You’re not alone’ sounds like an ode to friendship, to compassion in these lockdown times when much human suffering takes often strike deep wounds into our very souls. Friendship is a verb, it breaks through self-centeredness. For those who doubt it all too often: ‘You’re Not Alone’… Somewhere there is someone who cares about you and sings this song for you!
