About The Release “I guess I am the only one”
The song has a very serious meaning behind it, despite having a cheery melody and a memorable refrain. It is a criticism of the way people live their lives in this day and age, which can be summed up as a “kingdom of egotism.” People seem to care more about material possessions such as money and nice cars than they do about what should really matter in life, and that is love.
It is also the accusation that there is a deep-seated resentment towards the manner in which society appears to exclude diversity rather than welcome it. They do not see it as a source of wealth but rather as a potential threat. Therefore, there is no possibility. Whoever is different is destined to be rejected and left alone, but the song reiterates this message: even if they don’t accept you, even if they neglect you, don’t change who you are, because if you were to accept to change your nature, you would be fooling the only person that you must not fool: yourself. This is a wonderful message for anyone who might be encompassed by the word “Diversity.”
One rarely encounters a melody that simultaneously makes profound social commentary and has a strong message encouraging the listener to love oneself. The world needs more music like Lorenzo’s, which encourages development, self-acceptance, and the discovery of inner strength. Don’t miss out on the self-love anthem of the moment—”I Guess I Am the Only One”
