RAG’N’BONE MAN The Fire

I had a dream, to wash myself

Of this great affliction

So hard to say, I get untied

Speak without conviction

All the weight of my worries

And the fear that surrounds me

Depends on you too

How can I stand here as a man

Place all the blame into your hands

Leave it with you?

I’ve been lost

Lost in the fire of love

I’ve been lost

Lost, lost in the fire of love

You felt the heat of the sunshine

Before I met you

Now reach the side

Pour your heart out

And left you in the shadow

All the weight of my worries

And the fear that surrounds me

Depends on you too

I’ve been lost

Lost in the fire of love

I’ve been lost

Lost, lost in the fire of love

From the days I couldn’t face you sober

To the times that I would raise when you would tip me over

We was always on the edge of never-ending

But hands kept on clenching

This lifestyle’s descending

Why you pretending I was pulling down the bricks?

I was young and you were sick

‘Cause at the time I drained the life

From everything that ever lived

Man of sin, the devil in me

Fire straight from out the pit

But I don’t blame myself now

I see you

I’ve been lost

Lost in the fire of love

I’ve been lost

Lost, lost in the fire of love

All that’s wrong with me

Is wrong with you

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

RAG’N’BONE MAN Life In Her Yet

She still remembers a time that was uncomplicated

But sure as the sun rise she’s seen things that you’ll never see

Losses and heartaches amount to her strength

But oh how they all take their toll

She’s still here fighting

Better know there’s life in her yet

Time will take us all, and turn us into stones

It leaves us with regrets and picks apart the threads

Hung over fragile bones

Let her go

I can’t let her go

I can’t let her go

Her hands tell the story of hardships that we’ll never know

Her face is a map of her lifetime on well traveled roads

But those eyes tell nothing of a soul that is spared

A heart that is longing for death

She’s still here fighting

Better know there’s life in her yet

Time will take us all, and turn us into stones

It leaves us with regret it picks apart the threads

Hung over fragile bones

Let her go

I can’t let her go

I can’t let her go

Let her go

I can’t let her go

I can’t let her go

Let her go

Let her go

Let her go

RAG’N’BONE MAN No Mother

Didn’t I lace her shoes

Just the same as you

And ain’t that my blood in her veins

Didn’t I love her

Didn’t I hold her

Ain’t that my blue in her eyes

She don’t need another heart break

Don’t make it ’bout me

No mother should ever let her child bare the hate that she feels

Please (please)

Please (please)

Please don’t take her from me

I don’t wanna see her grow

Just to be like you

I can’t stand your smile on her face

I didn’t ask for nothing

I never wanted war

You still have a gun to my head

She don’t need another heart break

Don’t make it ’bout me

No mother should ever let her child bare the hate that she feels

Please (please)

Please (please)

Please don’t take her from me

Please (please) (please)

Please (please) (please)

Please don’t take her from me

Didn’t I lace her shoes

Just the same as you

Ain’t that my blood in her veins

Didn’t I love her

Didn’t I hold her

Ain’t that my blue in her eyes

She don’t need another heart break

Don’t make it ’bout me

No mother should ever let her child bare the hate that she feels

She don’t need another heart break

Don’t make it ’bout me

No mother should ever let her child bare the hate that she feels

No mother should

No mother should

Don’t take her from me

RAG’N’BONE MAN Grace

Said I loved you without hesitation

So easy for you to break my foolish heart

Now I wonder if you ever speak my name

Will I always be defined by my mistakes?

In the eyes of a saint I’m a stranger

We’re all trying to find a way

At the death of every darkness there’s a morning

Though we all try

We all try

We’re all one step from grace

I made myself believe

There was no fight left in me

But redemption doesn’t fall down at your feet

In the half light

We raised a hand to my defeat

And I watched the walls fall

And I rebuilt them piece by piece

In the eyes of a saint I’m a stranger

We’re all trying to find a way

At the death of every darkness there’s a morning

Though we all try

We all try

We’re all one step from grace

I wonder why we give up on love

When it’s always within reach

You and I, we suffered this enough

We all try

We all try

We’re all one step from grace

In the eyes of a saint I’m a stranger

We’re all trying to find a way

At the death of every darkness there’s a morning

Though we all try

We all try

We’re all one step from grace

RAG’N’BONE MAN Lay My Body Down

All I’m looking for

Is a little bit more rope

To wrap around my throat

I’m in trouble

I’m in trouble

And all I’m gasping for

Is one last breath of hope

To hear the hearts I broke

I’m in trouble

I’m in trouble

When you lay my body down

When you throw me in the ground

Don’t be sorry

When you lay my body down

When you throw me in the ground

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Turn your heart

To the trail

Of souls behind me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

All the fearful eyes

Stay burned upon my mind

The gift they left behind

I’m all troubles

I’m all troubles

Still they find the words

Ring louder than my thoughts

Lay heavy as a curse

I’m in trouble

I’m in trouble

When you lay my body down

When you throw me in the ground

Don’t be sorry

When you lay my body down

When I’m buried in the ground

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Turn your heart

To the trail

Of souls behind me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

These are my confessions

I’m singing out my dying words

These are my confessions

Make peace before I hit the dirt

These are my confessions

Hear all my sins laid down in verse

These are my confessions

Oh, these are my confessions

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

Turn your heart

To the trail

Of souls behind me

Save your prayers

Don’t shed a tear, don’t shed a tear for me

RAG’N’BONE MAN Sirens

When the siren’s calling out my name

Will I succumb, lose myself again

As the sirens sing aloud their song

Should I sing along, and give myself to sin

(When the siren’s calling)

Jump this ship and crash into the waves

(When the siren’s calling)

Break my back on jagged rocks again

(When the siren’s calling)

Hold my ears to deafen out the sound

(When the siren’s calling)

Ignore these voices that will drag me down

When the siren’s call my name

(When the siren’s calling)

Jump this ship and crash into the waves

(When the siren’s calling)

Break my back on jagged rocks again

(When the siren’s calling)

Hold my ears to deafen out the sound

(When the siren’s calling)

Ignore these voices that will drag me down

When the sirens call my name

RAG’N’BONE MAN Innocent Man

I’ve been a victim of some sorry circumstances

That was committed by somebody else’s hand

And only heaven knows how I’ve ended up so broke

I ain’t guilty but I’m left fearing the stand

It’s not my crime, why do I have to pay?

I’m doing time, this feeling I can’t shake

I’m lost in the suffering for nothing, my heart don’t understand

It’s beating for an innocent man

How was I supposed to know that I’d be fooled

And the sweetest kiss could ever be so cruel

I could always let it go, but it’s out of my control

Now I’m right back here still holding on to you

It’s not my crime, why do I have to pay?

I’m doing time, this feeling I can’t shake

I’m lost in the suffering for nothing, my heart don’t understand

It’s beating for an innocent man

Wanting, to meeting, cut me I’m bleeding, this heart keeps on beating for you

It’s not my crime, why do I have to pay?

I’m doing time, this feeling I can’t shake

I’m lost in the suffering for nothing, my heart don’t understand

It’s beating for an innocent man

It’s not my crime, why do I have to pay?

I’m doing time, this feeling I can’t shake

I’m lost in the suffering for nothing, my heart don’t understand

It’s beating for an innocent man

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 that’s 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

Have we 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

They’ve finally bust us open

As a thousand tiny paper cuts of life

Sweet love, my oldest friend

Have we come to the bitter end?

No made up, no pretend

Have we come to the bitter end?

The bitter end

The bitter end

Have we 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

Have we come to the bitter end?

RAG’N’BONE MAN Skin

When I heard that sound

When the walls came down

I was thinking about you

About you

When my skin grows old

When my breath runs cold

I’ll be thinking about you

About you

Seconds from my heart

A bullet from the dark

Helpless, I surrender

Shackled by your love

Holding me like this

With poison on your lips

Only when it’s over

The silence hits so hard

‘Cause it was almost love, it was almost love

It was almost love, it was almost love

When I heard that sound

When the walls came down

I was thinking about you

About you

When my skin grows old

When my breath runs cold

I’ll be thinking about you

About you

When I run out of air to breathe

It’s your ghost I see

I’ll be thinking about you, about you

It was almost love, it was almost…

We bleed ourselves in vain

How tragic is this game?

Turn around, I’m holding on to someone

But the love is gone

Carrying the load, with wings that feel like stone

Knowing that we nearly fell so far now

It’s hard to tell

Yeah we came so close, it was almost love

It was almost love, it was almost love

When I heard that sound

When the walls came down

I was thinking about you

About you

When my skin grows old

When my breath runs cold

I’ll be thinking about you

About you

When I run out of air to breathe

It’s your ghost I see

I’ll be thinking about you, about you

While I reached out for your hand

When the walls were caving in

When I see you on the other side

We can try all over again

When I heard that sound

When the walls came down

I was thinking about you

About you

When my skin grows old

When my breath runs cold

I’ll be thinking about you

About you

When I run out of air to breathe

It’s your ghost I see

I’ll be thinking about you, about you

‘Cause it was almost love, it was almost love

It was almost love, it was almost love
