Fryars – On Your Own (MP3 + Lyrics)

posted by: Lydia New Music Daily
Fryars

Fryars is the the stage name for Benjamin Garrett, a singer from London. I don’t know much more about Fryars other than his name and the links to his sites (website, Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), but I can tell you one thing: I’m hooked. I don’t typically endorse the use of autotone from legitimate singers, but when it’s done artfully, like Fryars has done here, or like Bon Iver has done in the past, it can be quite beautiful.

Something about the lyrics (hit the jump to read all of the lyrics) of this song are really getting to me. Maybe it’s memories of heart break, or maybe it’s the fact that I live by myself, so I come home to little more than an enclosed space with a cat and some plants, but that chorus is breathtaking. on your own, feeling like you don’t belong. Something tells me we’ve all had moments where we feel completely alone and like we don’t belong. It seems dark and heavy, but it’s so common to so many people. We seek out company like it’s paramount to survival and happiness. But really, aren’t we all alone here?

hello it’s only me
i come and go with minimal flare (?)
i’ve been your closest ally
you come alive in waves
i know that you’re unstoppable, babe
i’ll be your hardest critic

on your own
feeling like you don’t belong
on your own
feeling like you don’t belong

you haven’t spoken in days
you’re like my rock in so many ways
i’ll be your greatest heartache
on your own
feeling like you don’t belong
on your own
feeling like you don’t belong

i aint gonna stand on everyone
i can make my own way just for once
i’m healthy
i’m a little different to myself
i’ma make a b-line straight to hell
i’m so healthy
healthy

on your own
feeling like you don’t belong
on your own
feeling like you don’t belong

on your own
feeling like you don’t belong
on your own
feeling like you don’t belong

stay strong, when you’re feeling like you don’t belong
stay strong, when you’re feeling like you don’t belong
