Rag’n’Bone Man – 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 blind
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

Oh, 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

I’m no prophet or Messiah
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


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

Rag’n’Bone Man – As You Are

You raised the lights when it was frightening
You calmed the storm when it was rising
You found me there where I was hiding
All I have is here and now

If the ground beneath our feet has disappeared
I’ll be here beside you, always be right near you
Remember me, won’t you?

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

When I was reaching out in the dark
When the streets below just looked so far
When I forgot everything that I was
All I needed was your love

If the earth beneath our feet is old and caves in
For a second we will fight, when it’s late in the evening
Don’t let me go, dear

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
As you are

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise (I promise)
I promise to take you, take you as you are

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man – Bitter End

You swear to God but I’m a non-believer
You’re losing faith while I’ve been holding on
Trying to find the root of all this come between us
Trying to save what’s left before everything is gone

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end?
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end
The bitter end
The bitter end

Too many years of battle scars and now
We’re broken
And all the words you said
Been hanging over my head for time
And all of the lines we’ve crossed
The finally bars that’s open
As a thousand tiny pain because the light

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end
The bitter end
The bitter end
How we’ve come to the bitter end
Oh, the bitter end

The higher we rise
The further we fall
When we crash down
Through all of these years
I can’t accept it’s over now
I won’t let go

Sweet love, my oldest friend
Have we come to the bitter end
No made up, no pretend
How we’ve come to the bitter end


A few hours ago I learned that an American colleague of mine had passed away. I am still shocked – 37 is not an age to go. RIP Shavon – this one’s for you.
