All You Need to Know

Home Lyrics All You Need to Know

Good old Phil came through with a tune.  This is different from his usual piano and instrumentation style.  It's more of a beat.  I was living in Vegas and he sent it to me; said I could have it.  To him the tune was about "journey" or something like that.  I did just move to Vegas, so it was nice that he thought of me.  Most of my family was a little buzzed out at the idea of me leaving Connecticut.  And Vegas was so far.  Not like I stayed on the East Coast and went downward - I moved across the entire country just about.

 

So anyway, I took a shot at the tune and laid down some vocals and sent it back.  Apparently the melody I chose didn't vibe with him (or the tune for that matter).  He hummed a melody and sent it back to me.  I was a little dismayed because I thought I nailed it with the vocals and lyrics I had done originally.  But, no.  Haha!  I worked on it a little and slowly eased it onto the back burner.  I don't know why.  I guess in Vegas I was busy looking for singing work opportunities that I would enjoy.

 

Okay - flash forward and here we are, the end of 2019. I did it. I came up with some lyrics, sang it and sent it back to him. Then, more instructions came - make it more sultry, like a whisper, except on the chorus, get rid of the word "developed"....   What?!!!   No problem.  Follow the chief.  Plus, he changed a few things in the lyrics that were awesome, awesome statements.  I sang it as instructed and it works - and well.  Philip always believed in me and my voice.  He was one of my earliest supporters and always had good things to say and encouragement to offer.  Thank you for that.

 

All You Need to Know is inside of you.  Already.  You don't have to search for it, travel to find it, dig for it... it's already there.  Still your mind and listen to your heart.  You already know the answers.  They came with you when you were born.  They were implanted in your soul, your heart and your mind.  The people around you - including society - taught you to push it all down and bury it so deep within that you couldn't find it in yourself.  But it's there, waiting for your attention, your light, to ignite the spark and energy that exists within you.  It's who you are and why you are here.

 

Embrace the words in this song and find your joy.

 

 

All You Need to Know

 

Just can't describe this yearning inside

Wanting to find your purpose in life

No longer deny voices in your mind

Really to find out just where you belong

 

You found you were living a lie

You never explored deep inside

You found down deep in your soul

All the things you really need to know

Oh, oh, oh -All you need to know

 

Spent your whole life running away

From everything you need to proclaim

You can't deny what you now feel

the power to love and the power to heal

 

You found you were living a lie

You never explored deep inside

You found down deep in your soul

All the things you really need to know

 

Oh, oh, oh -All you need to know

It's all inside, inside of you, all you need to know

 

Now you found it, explored it, embraced it

Now you love it

 

All you need to know

Everything that you really need to know
