All of this Time

Lyrics by Steven Garone

The Song

Recorded at First Wave Digital Studios in Hempstead, NY and Cow Pilot Studios in Gilbert, Arizona.

This is yer basic love song - what else can I say?

The Recording Process

This song has had more permutations than any song I have written to date. It started out as a simple love song with some vague lyric for the chorus (brilliantly re-written by my son Steven).

Before sending the tracks to William, I suggested (something I rarely do) that I would like the song to have a Bruce Hornsby style piano part, which PJ brilliantly provided. However, after William added his electric guitar, Kenny's stick part and Casey's drums, it became a big, awesome and heavy rock song. This of course, is the beauty of long-distance recording - you never know what will happen when you get the song back!

While William had been working on the song, I re-recorded it yet again as a more keyboardy, spacey, drifty version (hence the spacey keyboard opening to the song). Upon hearing what William had done, I was in a state of confusion. My problem here was that I liked ALL the recorded versions.

Not knowing what to do because it had already gone through a myriad of permutations within my head, I gave all the tracks to Anthony, who volunteered to remix it, and who shocked me with the mix you hear on this CD. This mix is an incredible combination of multiple stages of development - what you hear is what I call the "Archaeological mix" of the song, with varying layers of the song within the context of the music. It boggles my mind each time I hear it.

The Lyrics

I see you every day
But you don't look my way
I don't know what to think
Your smile is everything!

All of this time, I've loved you
Deep in my heart lies the truth

There's so much pain inside my heart
And I don't know why
And do you notice me at all?
Look at me at all?
Love me at all?

I saw you yesterday
And did you look my way?
Why did I even think
That you would look at me?

All of this time, I've loved you
Deep in my heart lies the truth

There's so much pain inside my heart
And I don't know why
And do you notice me at all?
Look at me at all?
Love me at all?

I know it's in my mind
But I still need a sign
Sometimes I almost think
That you might care for me!

All of this time I've loved you
Why do I hide from the truth?
