Brenda Lee performs "All Alone Am I"

"All Alone Am I" is a song from 1962 popularized by the American singer Brenda Lee. The song was originally composed by the Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis and recorded in Greek by Tzeni Karezi for the soundtrack of the film To nisi ton genneon (The Island of the Brave); the original song in Greek is titled "Μην τον ρωτάς τον ουρανό" ("Min ton rotas ton ourano", translation: "Don't ask the heaven"). Later, a new version of the song with English lyrics was produced by Owen Bradley and appeared as the title track on one of Lee's albums. The song is written in the key of F major, but begins on the sub-dominant B-flat Major 7th chord.

 

"All Alone Am I" became a top 10 pop hit in both the US and the UK. The song peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November 1962 and number seven on the UK Singles Chart in February 1963. The song also spent five weeks atop the US Billboard easy listening chart in November and December 1962, Lee's only song to do so. The B-side to the single, "Save All Your Lovin' For Me", reached number 53 on the US pop chart.

Brenda Lee - All Alone Am I Lyrics

 

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
