Described as “The best AIDS-inspired song in 15 years” by the Village Voice, “Going It Alone,” the hit song from the award-winning off-Broadway musical, THE LAST SESSION, is a song of gratitude to a caregiver. Effective for benefit concerts as a “thank you” to donors; effective as a love song for cabaret and concert settings. Deeply emotional, written from real life. Guitar chords included.

GOING IT ALONE

Music & Lyrics by Steve Schalchlin

Though you’ve been a rock for me to stand on
Beside me every moment of the fight
Even though you make it so much better
When I go to sleep at night

The fight that I am fighting is my own
And it feels as though I’m going it alone

Now and then my friends take me to dinner
And tell me how they’re with me all the way
They lean across the table and they
Say they’re thinking of me
Then they take the bill so
I don’t have to pay

And they tell me they’re so proud of how I’ve grown
And they say they know I’m going it alone

But is it such a lonely battle?
Have I been so wrapped up in myself?
What about what you’ve been through as well?
Do you lie awake and worry
Never falling back to sleep
Are you going through some private kind of hell?

Do you also feel you’re out there on your own?
Do you feel as though you’re going it alone?

Do you lie awake and worry never falling back to sleep?
Have I put you through some private kind of hell?
I’d have to read your mind to even tell

Just before I turn to go to sleep
I brush a little hair back from your eye
Suddenly the loneliness I felt just melts away
And I smile because I know the reason why

Can we really say we’re out there on our own
Can we really say we’re out there on our own
When together we’ve been going it alone
When together we’ve been going it alone
