Story behind the song
The first of four songs written in a bunch starting in February of 2015. This song was written in a single day as an uptempo piano piece. Later during the recording sessions, a reggae guitar was added and the song came alive after that. The accordion and backup singers introduced a new element into the song as well, but that wasn't planned when the song was written.
Lyrics
Look at me tonight, here I am on my own (Well) That’s all right, nothing new to be alone I’ll stay up, in case the phone should ring But if it doesn’t, well it don’t mean a thing Look at me tonight, staying in not going out Leaving on the light, so there won’t be any doubt No one needs, to feel sorry for me I’m quite content, without company Look at me tonight, here I am on my own (solo) Don’t have to worry, there’s so much to do I could read, or watch a movie or two Look at me tonight, here I am on my own (Well) That’s all right, nothing new to be alone If someone missed me, I’m sure I would know But till then, I’ve got nowhere to go Look at me tonight, here I am on my own Look at me tonight, here I am on my own Look at me tonight, here I am on my own
