Standing Alone | Rejyna' s Looptober Tour | NW LoopFest, Analog Café, Portland, OR | Composed and Performed By Rejyna | Video by Jazmyn Whitman/Jazmyn Marie Video Services

Going it alone, venturing out of your comfort zone? Often you're following a 'voice inside' that encourages you to take the long shot, metaphorically jumping off a cliff.

Go against the grain or take the road less traveled and you may solicit warnings from the world around -- but as the journey progresses, you realize that you are rediscovering yourself perpetually -- a stark contrast to those who live the same day over and over. You will hear the sounds of many calling you home, but like a nomad, you crave that sense of wandering, being unattached to hours and calendars, unfettered by routine and repetitive routes.

There are no pre-recorded backing tracks in this performance, all the parts are created live. "Soft on the edges and metal in the middle..." that's how one audience member described this song...

LYRICS:

Standing alone
A voice is calling me to roam
Whether to wander
away from my home
It's never easy
to stand alone

To stand alone:
On the verge of losing reason
Lost reality
Like the changing of the seasons
Seeking harmony

On the edge of broken mornings
Gaining sanity
Overlooking scattered warnings
Again it's only me
Again it's only me

Standing alone
A voice is calling me back home
Always I ponder
Always to roam
It's never easy
to stand alone

To stand alone
