about

My son Dallas, who lives with Asperger's (a form of Autism) asked me to write him a song. This is for you sweet Dallas. Unknown and All Alone

lyrics

Unknown and all Alone

I try to tell you what I’m thinking
Feeling, believing

But the sounds that surround me
Push me, pull me
Trick me, fool me
Play tug-o-war
Inside my head
And instead I say things
That are misunderstood

Stuck inside these grey walls
But it’s no safer here
Been inside these same walls
Alone forever here

If you see me
You will free me
I don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be

Will you see me
Will you free me
I don’t wanna be, unknown
And all alone

You always tell me what I’m thinking
Needs fixing, needs changing

Your demands, like quicksand they
Twist me, turn me
Drag me, churn me
My tongue gets tied
Can’t tell it right
And in fright I say things
That are misunderstood

Stuck inside these grey walls
But it’s no safer here
Been inside these same walls
Alone forever here

If you see me
You will free me
I don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be

Will you see me
Will you free me
I don’t wanna be, unknown
And all alone

BR Can you hear what I can’t say
Can you see what I can’t show you
Can you feel my strangling pain
Will you know what I can’t name

Stuck inside these grey walls
But it’s no safer here
Been inside these same walls
Alone forever here

If you see me
You will free me
I don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be

Will you see me
Will you free me
I don’t wanna be, unknown
And all alone

Clarine’s songs are beautifully crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure as to suggest she knows your secrets and your soul.

Elements of jazz, blues, soul and reggae are woven together under Dawnya’s smooth, sultry voice.

Think Jason Mraz meets Norah Jones with a Ruthie Foster kick.
