Barry Gibb debuts THE HOME TRUTH SONG

Barry Gibb debuts THE HOME TRUTH SONG March 26, 2015, Miami Beach Centennial

Verse 1:

I ain’t the poster boy you made me
You won’t ever chain me down
I’ve been to heaven and I’ve been to hell
And I’ve been livin’ underground

You want me to be the man
You know I never wanna be
Everybody changes with the wind
Set my spirit free

Pre-Chorus 1:

Let me tell me where I should not go
Off together in a one-man show
I need somebody to hold me When the night is long

Chorus 1:
I am the man who does it all or nothing
I am the one who will not fade away
I am the man who puts his hand in the fire
Bein’ forever young

Back where I belong
Singing a home truth song
Singing a home truth song

Verse 2:

With the weight of the world on my shoulders
Always been that way
This runaway train keeps on rollin’
Someone gotta pay
I take what my God has given me
I can’t tell you why
There must be a reason for livin’
Sometimes I’d rather die

Pre-Chorus 2: With a storm on the ocean at the river’s end
I won’t be lonely, it’s my only friend
I need somebody to hold me When it all goes wrong

Chorus 2:

I am the one who does it all or nothin’
I am the one who will not fade away
I will be standin’ with my hand in the fire
Bein’ forever young
Back where I belong
Singin’ a home truth song
Singin’ a home truth song

Verse 1: I ain’t the poster boy you made me
You won’t ever chain me down
I’ve been to heaven and I’ve been to hell
And I’ve been livin’ underground
You want me to be the man
You know I never wanna be
Everybody changes with the wind
Set my spirit free

Chorus 3: I am the man who does it all or nothing
I am the one who will not fade away
I will be standin’ with my hand in the fire
Bein’ forever young
Back where I belong
Singin’ a home truth song
Singin’ a home truth song

Meaning of Songs

Clos
THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.

“New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones)”
Written by Barry and Robin Gibb (1967)
Performed by Bee Gees


The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…
