Brenda Lee All Alone Am I

Brenda Lee All Alone Am I

Pop Music

The song “All Alone Am I” was written in 1962 by Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis and Arthur Altmn who provided the lyrics in English. (Hadjidakis received an Academy Award for Best Original Song in the film Never on Sunday for the song of the same name in 1960.) Brenda was a teen at the time of recording in 1962 and her powerful voice shows maturity far beyond her years.  The song rose to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 later in 1962 and to #7 on the U.K. Singles Chart in 1962.

Here are the lyrics to “All Alone Am I” by Brenda Lee:

“All alone am I ever since your goodbye
All alone with just a beat of my heart
People all around but I don’t hear a sound
Just the lonely beating of my heart

No use in holding other hands
For I’d be holding only emptiness
No use in kissing other lips
For I’d be thinking just of your caress

All alone am I ever since your goodbye
All alone with just a beat of my heart
People all around but I don’t hear a sound
Just the lonely beating of my heart

No other voice can say the words
My heart must hear to ever sing again
The words you used to whisper low
No other love can ever bring again

All alone am I ever since your goodbye
All alone with just a beat of my heart
People all around but I don’t hear a sound
Just the lonely beating of my heart”

For other songs by Brenda Lee: “Sweet Nothin’s,” “I’m Sorry,” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”

    I’ve been playing “The Brenda Lee Story: Her Greatest Hits” (22 songs) quite a bit in the last few months. Alison Krauss does a great job covering Brenda’s “All Alone Am I” and “Losing You” on her recent “Windy City” album.
