Traveling Wilburys - Not Alone Anymore (Roy Orbison)




"Not Alone Any More" is a song by the British–American supergroup the Traveling Wilburys from their 1988 album Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1. It was sung by Roy Orbison and serves as his main contribution to the album. The song was written mainly by Jeff Lynne, although all five members of the Wilburys are credited as songwriters. A longtime admirer of Orbison, Lynne wrote "Not Alone Any More" as a vehicle for the singer's operatic vocal style. The song's lyrical theme of loneliness similarly recalls Orbison's dark ballads of the early 1960s. On release, the song was much admired by music critics. With the commercial success of the Wilburys, and the recognition afforded Orbison following his death in December 1988, it marked his full return from the career downturn he had experienced since the mid 1960s.







Lyrics


You always said that I'd be back again That I'd come running to you in the end I thought that you were on your own And now I find you're not alone

I'll see you through the rain Through the heartache and pain It hurts like never before You're not alone any more

You always said that I would know someday Just how it feels when your love walks away I let you down I let you go I lost you, how was I to know

I'll see you through the rain Through the heartache and pain It hurts like never before You're not alone any more

I never knew I could feel this way I never could see past yesterday You feel that everything is gone I feel it too, you're not alone

I'll see you through the rain Every heartache and pain It hurts like never before You're not alone You're not alone You're not alone, any more, any more, any more
