Valerie Mendez has bravely fought cancer her entire life, but her love for music has been a source of strength since the beginning. Valerie has always covered other artists music, but with news of her next big surgery, coming up on November 15, she decided to write her own song.

The song, “You Alone”, is amazing!

So amazing, in fact, that the legendary Capitol Studios invited her to record the song in Studio A using Frank Sinatra‘s microphone. That version will be released soon.

Meanwhile, we invite you to learn Valerie’s song and upload a video of YOU performing your own version of it to show Valerie that the universe is filled with love and creative support. Be sure to tag your posts with #OneForValerie

No money is being asked for here. Nothing except your talent and love.

VERSE 1
Have you ever felt so lost
so out of place
So many corners
But I’m still running out of space

Thinking about what I’ve gone through
Maybe it’s time for something new

Everyone just comes and goes and leaves me confused
Talking like they know but could they take a day in my shoes
It’s like there’s nowhere to hide swimming fast against the tide

CHORUS
Your love gives me life hold me so tight
Never ending never failing
They can leave my life stay far behind
You alone will be my guide

1 Instrumental

VERSE 2
Trapped in the cell of my mind
I can’t figure out
Who’s with me by my side and who’s in the crowd
I need someone to put all my trust in

Struggles coming left and right but I need to fight
Cause I know things can’t go perfect in this life
But I know you’re coming oh Lord you’re coming to save me

CHORUS
Your love gives me life holds me so tight
never ending never failing
they can leave my life stay far behind you alone will be my   – –
BRIDGE

F Fm Am
– -Guide To overcome the mountains
G
Up ahead
F Fm Am G
You will give me strength to see the light again

Double Chorus with Counter Melody, Bells and Whistles

Your love gives me life hold me so tight
Never ending never failing
They can leave my life stay far behind
You alone will be my guide

Your love gives me life hold me so tight
Never ending never failing
They can leave my life stay far behind
You alone will be my guide
