[verse 1]
I know it's kinda late
and I'm sorry I can't wait
But I'm afraid to fall
Feel like a spider on the wall
Another rainy day
This pain won't go away
So I'm calling you, my friend
I just need a helping hand

 

[prechorus]
Don't you ever feel
that living's an ordeal?
Darkness, never sun...
or am I the only one?

 

[chorus]
I'm sorry I haven't been much around
but I'll be there when the sun goes down
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone
They say nobody loves you when you're down and out
But I'm on the rooftops to shout it out loud
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone

 

[verse 2]
A crazy world out there
much more than I can bear
Nobody wants you
when you're down, so what about you?
I know I got to be strong
Losers are always wrong
So I've come to you, God
with all the love I've got

 

[prechorus]
Don't you ever feel
you're slipping off the reel?
Like you're really done?
or am I the only one?

 

[chorus]
I'm sorry I haven't been much around
but I'll be there when the sun goes down
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone
They say nobody loves you when you're down and out
But I'm on the rooftops to shout it out loud
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone

 

[bridge]
And I'd really like to know
Do you turn off the radio
when they play this song?

 

[solo]

 

[prechorus]
Don't you ever feel
that living's an ordeal?
Darkness, never sun...
or am I the only one?

 

[chorus]
I'm sorry I haven't been much around
but I'll be there when the sun goes down
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone
They say nobody loves you when you're down and out
But I'm on the rooftops to shout it out loud
Don't stay in a world of your own
I'm your friend, you know you're not alone

Description:

Loneliness is a stone-cold killer. Without friendship, we are scared creatures lost in our little bubble. We so desperately long to share feelings and experiences. 

"You're not alone" by Eric Geurts revolves around this theme. In a - at least at first hearing - winsome ballad with beautiful guitar lines and a lovely wobbling chorus, the lyrics tell about the need for friendship, love and compassion. In 1974, John Lennon sang: "Nobody loves you when you're down and out". Lennon's soul haunts this song, but unlike the rather cynical Lennon song, "You're not alone" sounds like an ode to friendship, to compassion in these lockdown times when much human suffering takes often strike deep wounds into our very souls. Friendship is a verb, it breaks through self-centeredness.


For those who doubt it all too often: "You're Not Alone"... Somewhere there is someone who cares about you and sings this song for you!

Kemper Testimonies


Suseguitar from Kemper forum:
I had a chance to play one of the profiles (037508) yesterday in our rehearsal room, played my Strat with Quarterpounds ;) - the solosound is just awesome, assertive, supporting and inspiring. Great work!

Ibot39 from Kemper forum:
After testing the profiles my conclusion is: The pack does exactly what the author is advertising. You get the Blackmore sound from the mentioned era. Humbuckers are possible, other 70s rock-sounds with a little tweaking. But the real soul of this pack is authentic Blackmore-tone! For this it was created with an ear for details and this is were the rigs shine! Thanks for the nice pictures that complement this special pack. I have to highlight the pdf that comes with the profiles offering very detailed information. Great!

Laker from Kemper forum:
These profiles are the real deal IMHO.

Riddlescott from Kemper Forum:
I like it the better the longer i play it. What i also appreciate is the tasty effects settings. Highly recommended for the real Marshall Bluesy Staccato Strat Sound.

raiellojr from Kemper forum:
I like the pack a lot...a little tweaking and I can get real close to your sound samples.

Laker from Kemper forum:
Only the one amp a Marshall Major but it sounds like the real deal. These profiles are outstanding. Everything they make sounds great. What I really like about them is their sound samples sound just like what you download. IMHO a lot of other profilers do not sound the same.

Acolbourn from Kemper forum:
For Frusciante profiles I tried flying snowman's more black pack listed above and they sound great!

Razorpig55 from Kemper forum:
I spent a ton of time searching for the right “blues” tones and happened on your site.  I really love the pack ('60 Pack) I downloaded, especially the FS ’60 B1001pa......nice, crunchy and just a bit mellow.  I’m going to post your site on the reddit site for Kemper.......have a great one thanks for the great tones.
