    When you are alone do you think about him
    Waiting by the phone to see if he's called you now
    Has he called you now?
    I've been by your side for ten years and counting
    Dealing with your lies inside I am dying now, I'm dying now
    Remember remember all of the lies you
    All of the lies that you say
    Remember, remember all of the lies you
    All of the lies you say
    Look into my eyes and say you don't need me
    When I walk away into the darkness now
    The darkness now
    Remember, remember all of the lies you
    All of the lies that you say
    Remember, remember all of the lies you
    All of the lies you say now
    You threw all this away
    I'm left in ruin and pain
    I can't fix your mistakes
    You threw…

      Yes! Thank all that is good in this world that American Idol had the wisdom not to contract this prodigy. They chose a talented country music artist instead. The nicest, country young man. He was deserving to enter into a recording contract and push forward in the US. Hallelujah! Our Homie is a different kind of artist. He is a mathematical genius in music like the masters of the past. Do you guys notice those choices?! OMG. His money maker that will give him the financial security for his true artistry is motion picture soundtracks. Everybody, shout out to Ang Lee! Wow, can you imagine? A true human experience director and the Alejandro Aranda experience? Homie! If your agent or anyone who has committed to helping you isn't bringing you soundtrack deals, Stop, Drop & Roll! Shake them off! I keep thinking of the pairing of our homie and director Ang Lee. Ang Lee chose Mychael Danna for Life of Pi. His wife is Indian I think. Regardless, he was adding electronics into soundtracks before they had a name for it I think. He beat out major league contenders at the Oscars. He deserved it. Have you guys experienced our homies electronics? Holy Vibes and genius! Alejandro on tour live in Nashville. Nashville?! Brave! I think the pairing on an Ang Lee project would be Our homie is not just a musician, he is a prodigy. A prodigy of the people. Not an aristocrat composer. One of us. A home schooled, lower middle classed, California brown boy unknown to the motion picture directors and producers. Timeless, special, genius. Sold out tours of pubs. Really? I know Alejandro is delighted. I see him light up when we sing along. Keep moving forward homie. The scores are your calling genius boy. Don't settle. I guarantee you that auditoriums of A-listers will be singing along if you allow yourself to realize your gift. Really realize, and move forward accordingly. Pubs aren't it lovely. Industry recognition for brilliance, and composer opportunities are not reserved for Canadian gentleman, or men named Ludwig. Bradley Cooper was genius and deserved every accolade for A Star is Born title soundtrack last Oscars. Lady Gaga is beloved. They moved us. But put Alejandro in the same category..Shout out Ang Lee!..and on the same stage, it would be no contest for the people. Remember, remember, all of the lies that you say....Oscars. No band. Auditorium of celebs transported to a human place as they sing in unison without accompaniment.

                                This is such a special performance! I loved it on the finale and I love it more all these months later. Alejandro is a star. In his career, he will have so many more titles and accolades than AI could have ever given him. What a wonder to behold.

                                            The orchestras awesome but can barely hear Alejandro’s guitar. Once again THE BAND IS TOO LOUD! They’ve been too loud for all the contestants the whole season!

They should pay him next year to perform each week. He was the reason for me watching that show (mostly his clips) every week.
