Alison Krauss - 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 ev'r 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!...

    I'm only 31 & I remember going to stay with my grandmother over the summer's growing up .
    I remember hearing this song by sang Brenda lee because of her record collection that I fell in love with. I haven't personally heard anyone even. Alison krauss sing this song and make me feel the way Brenda Lee did...it's still a great cover of this song....

    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

    Should I stay, or should I go?

  13. Chuck Hinkle

    I Love Alison Krauss's Music, both Bluegrass and Country. She sings like I would think an Angel would sing. I only listen to music I like through my 5000 plus songs on iTunes and my iPod. I refuse to listen to Country Radio(it's not Country Music), except "Willie's Roadhouse" on Sirius Satellite Radio. That's where I heard of Alison Krauss's new Country CD "Windy City" from DJ Charlie Monk. I love the entire "Windy City" album. I can't forget about the Musicians who gave it a real Country Music sound. And Buddy Cannon for selecting the songs, musicians and putting all of the pieces together to form a real Masterpiece. I've already listened to the entire CD 85 times me being starved for some new Country Music.

  14. Brynn Chester

    I love this song it reminds me of me and my sweet precious puppy.

  15. Mhi kl

    This has to be the greatest Tear Jerker ever; and I do not mean this in any rude or disparaging way, for sure.
    It is so moving. I go into a trans-like pause whenever I listen to it,
    But I have to admit, lovely, truly gorgeous as this fine lady sings this song, Brenda Lee owns it.

  16. Ελένη Ιωάννου

    Alison Krauss this is not your song. Composer is Manos Hatzidakis! Ο Μάνος Χατζιδάκης ζει και βασιλεύει στις καρδιές μας!

    Tj Passig

    Ελένη Ιωάννου this wasn’t Alison’s doing! 😓 She sang the song! everything else was the people who
    Posted it! kindest regards Tj Passig. 😁

  17. carl perkins

    Alison recorded this song one key high than the original Brenda Lee single, i noticed Alison is using nasal voice in the bridge 0.44 ,while Brenda version at one key below in this part is using combination of chest ,head voice and is very solid voice.

  18. Peggy Kline

    Love her voice. What a beautiful song.

  19. robert philips

    nice version, but Brenda singing it is quite magical

  20. Φάνης Αθανασίου

    Εε ρε τι την Περιμενει την ελληνικη αγορα τωρα που ο δοξας το ετοιμασε σε διασκευη με την Παπαριζου...😍

  21. Merrie Graham

    I luv this song Alison. 😙

  22. Cece Ruth

    This is the saddest song of all time lol. Gee wiz LOL. Think I'll go crawl in a hole somewhere

  23. Gavin Swanepoel

    Stunningly beautiful

  24. DORI D

    it's so beautiful song

  25. Tony X

    How can anyone dislike this? Brilliant

  26. ATHANASIUS DITSIAS

    Brilliant piece of purist recording... Enjoy this people; disliking such a pure audio, just for the absence of Hadjidakis' name, is a plain pathetic attitude. So, don't be miserable. Just mention the composer, and it's over. 99% of artists, would kill, in order to fit in a high class recording.

  27. Gilbrox1

    For fuck sake someone mention the composer!!! Who cares!

    Florin Mihai

    10 he are aproud for his origin.no problem

  28. Melinda Campbell

    Alison ur the cute girl ever I wish ur was my girlfriend

  29. Bob Hill

    This is beautifully powerful, I've always loved her voice. I love the Steele guitar and how long she holds the notes. This is painful and thought-provoking.

  30. reddragonready

    Who knew Manos Hadjidakis had this many fans?
    But just fyi to his fans here...first of all he only wrote the music, do any of you fans even know the name of the one writing the English lyrics?
    Second: rarely is the composer mentioned under youtube videos.
    Third.:Alison Krauss is one of the least deserving artists to be accused of lack of respect for composers or original artists.

     All in all I am rather impressed with Manos's fandom. Few composers, many with actually many more great songs to their name, garner such avid a following who deem it necessary to 22 times under the same video point out he wrote this melody.

  31. Αργυρη Σ

    That brakes my heart...Manos for ever!

  32. For Liberty

    I'd love to hear her do a Broadway album.

  33. don john

    ρε μαλακες μπηκα μονο και μονο για να σχολιασω οτι το τραγουδι ειναι του Χατζιδακη και δεν τον ανεφεραν παραπανω και βλεπω ελληνικα σχολια παντου. μα καλα, δουλειες δεν εχετε;

  39. Chrys Gnt

    The one and only, the composer of magical music, Manos Hadjidakis.

  40. Nicos Terzis

    "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 sky"). 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.

  41. Rafaella Adamou

    No reference to Hadjidakis out of respect is purely upsetting and rather disrespectful..

  42. Angiet76

    Music by the one and only Manos Hadjidakis from the movie "Το νησί των γενναίων" ...best known performance by Jenny Karezi in Greek...first English version if I am correct by Brenda Lee.. very nice version and please mention the composer!

    Please mention the composer of our hearts in your video description, it's Manos Hadjidakis. Mentioning the composer is an act of justice, a true artist must be fair. Wonderful interpretation.

    George Artopoulos

    Μπες στο Billboard να το δεις.. Είναι το Νο 9 αυτή τη βδομάδα. Φυσικά όχι το κομμάτι μόνο του αλλά ολόκληρο το άλμπουμ που το περιέχει.

  54. André Mecklenburg

    What a Voice!!! I love his Music so much! It´s a new GREAT SONG

    Petros Sesontis

    It is not a new song. It is a song written by a Greek composer Manos Hatzidakis in the 60's. The english version of the Greek song was performed by Brenda Lee an American singer in 1963.
    But yes, it a GREAT SONG!!!

  55. Dimitris Konitsiotis

    Music by Manos Hadjidakis, original version from Brenda Lee @ 1962 - #3 @ US (Nov 1962) & #7 @ UK (Feb 1963)

    Manos Hatzidakis !

  57. michael taylor

    she deserves every grammy!

    Frank Hames

    Windy City Alison Krause

  58. Konstantinos Pap

    There isn't any mention to composer. Is just unfair.

    Dionysis Boukouvalas

    Unfortunatelly it is the fate of the composer, many, many times. If you check out her other songs, there is no mention of composer either.

  59. Panagiotis Kan

    Music by Greek composer MANOS HADJIDAKIS, OSCAR Academy Award for Best Original Song 1960
    "Children of Piraeus"
    from the film NEVER ON SUNDAY.note
    This song "All Alone Am I "is not from the film never on Sunday

    Constantinos Lapiotis

    Φίλε Παναγιώτη. Το τραγούδι είναι μεν του Χατζηδάκη αλλά καμία σχέση με τα Παιδιά του Πειραιά. Το πρωτοείπε η Τζένυ Καρέζη στο Νησί των Γενναίων,

    Panagiotis Kan

    Αυτο το ξερω,δεν εγραψα οτι αυτο το τραγουδι,ειναι τα παιδια του πειραια,2 λογια για τον Χατζηδακη,εγραψα,παντως προσθεσα και μια επεξηγηση,και ολα αυτα βεβαια για τους ξενους που δεν γνωριζουν τον Χατζηδακη

  60. Renelle Everett

    My favorite song on the album ❤

  61. Gary Hendrix

    Powerful song. Wonderful. Alison's voice is unmatched in many ways. Yet, on this song no one can match Brenda Lee. Still, I enjoy it very much.

  62. reddragonready

    Brilliant!
