All The Time Lyrics

Artist: Barry Manilow
Album: All The Time

All The Time

-Artist: Barry Manilow as sung on "Greatest Hits" -Arista A2L 8601
-did NOT chart on Billboard
-Words and Lyrics by Barry Manilow and Marty Panzer


All the time I thought there's only me
Crazy in a way that no one else could be
I would have given everything I own
If someone would have said "you're not alone"

All the time I thought that I was wrong
Wanting to believe but needing to belong
If I'd've just believed in all I had
If someone would have said "you're not so bad"


CHORUS
All the time, all the wasted time
All the years waiting for a sign
To think I had it all
All the time


All the time I thought there's only me
Crazy in a way that no one else could be
I can't believe that you were somewhere, too
Thinking all the time there's only you

CHORUS

The second time he sings the chorus, "to think I had it all" becomes "to think we had it all". Very helpful. =D

"Wanting to BELIEVE but needing to belong" is supposed to be "Wanting to BE ME but needing to belong."

I have always enjoyed performing this song but today it has new meaning for me and I truly know that " I had it all the time".

I have played the song many times on my tape plsyer, and I am convinced that the song can be compaired with ones born sexuality, it really describes my being gay. I wish that I had known earlier in my life, but had to be satisfied with learning at age 25!

Knowing Manilow is gay makes it understandable one would interpret this ballad that way. Being very spiritual but not gay, I've always considered this song about finding the truth about oneself in any sense of it then realizing as human beings we are all sharing the experience. No matter what it ie, you are not alone. Rejoice once you realize that. Gotta love interpretive art...it all depends where you're standing as you look at it.

This song has always invoked a feeling of "sadness" in me. Although, 35 or so years ago, I was so young that I had not experianced anough life to compare what I had VS. had not, at 52, it's TOTALLY differtent story for me.
