Song Lyric Sunday ~ Rag'n Bone Man

Standard

I have been out of Song Lyric Sunday for a while but today I just have to share with you my first music discovery in 2017.

We were watching Jools Hollands Hootenanny* as we were pretty tired of seeing the same fireworks early in the morning on January 1st, 2017. One of his guests was the above mentioned Rag’n Bone Man.

If you have a look at the video you can imagine what I thought when he went to the stage. None of us expected some deep soulful blues but rather a Hip Hop act. But man then he started singing and he blew me away.

Apparently, the young man does perform music for a few years but has brought out his debut hit single last year in July and it has been number one of the charts in countries like Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

His debut album will come out in March 2017 and I certainly will buy it. I have listened to a few more of his songs on YouTube and they are of similar intensity.

But I do not want to keep you longer from listening to the song and reading the lyrics. Enjoy!

*please don’t ask me what a “Hootenanny” is. I have no idea whatsoever. However, the one Jools Holland does is rather entertaining and certainly offers a vast variety of music!

Lyrics thanks to A-Z Lyrics

“Human”

(I’m only human
I’m only, I’m only
I’m only human, human)Maybe I’m foolish, maybe I’m blind
Thinking I can see through this and see what’s behind
Got no way to prove it so maybe I’m lied

But I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me

Take a look in the mirror and what do you see
Do you see it clearer or are you deceived in what you believe

Cause I’m only human after all, you’re only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me

Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me

Don’t ask my opinion, don’t ask me to lie
Then beg for forgiveness for making you cry, making you cry

Cause I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me, don’t put the blame on me

Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human I make mistakes
I’m only human that’s all it takes to put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me

‘Cause I’m no prophet or messiah
You should go looking somewhere higher

I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me, don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human I do what I can
I’m just a man, I do what I can
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me
