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

RAG’N’BONE MAN Odetta

And you were always tryna fill the void of my brother

Habits, oh, tryna find that something new

Never stare in the eyes of a lover

Seeking darkness wherever lightning shine through

Alone came a morning of another

Blind sided by your sweet surprise

Odetta, don’t you know

That you save this young man’s soul?

And he go watch you getting wise

And you go watch him growing old

You’re always searching for destruction

Now you bare the scars of a path in which you chose

Takes a brave and a stronger kind of woman

It’s far away such a broken man can go

Alone came a morning of another

Blind sided by your sweet surprise

Odetta, don’t you know

That you save this young man’s soul?

And he go watch you getting wise

And you go watch him growing old

You got to hold him close

Odetta, don’t you never let him go

Might be a long wild road

Although we may need you there

We need you now more than ever

Odetta, don’t you know

That you save this young man soul?

And he go watch you getting wise

And you go watch him growing old

Odetta

RAG’N’BONE MAN Hell Yeah

Pray before I drift into sleep

Salvation is a gift and a curse

Knees down on the steps of the church

Hell bound as I step through the earth

Old folks begging for redemption

Lost souls scratching at a stained glass window

Where the grease players touch where the young souls sing about happy days

Cold hands clutching on a lifeline

Hung by a man that preaches from a page given by another man that was looking for a rope or a reason

You and I don’t feel obliged oh good Lord

But maybe I’m going to hell, yeah

Maybe you’re going to hell yeah

For all our wicked crimes

But if we’re already going to hell yeah, hell we might as well get stoned and crucified

Stoned and crucified

Pray before I drift into sleep

Salvation is a gift and a curse

Knees down on the steps of the church

Hell bound as I step through the earth

Sales man pitching from a soap box

Look at you pushing all ya sons and daughters like lambs to the slaughter keep feeding that book of revelation

If forgiveness is only for the privileged does the light shine brighter on a saint or a sinner

who’s praying to the sky keep looking for a chance of salvation

You and I don’t feel obliged oh good Lord

But maybe I’m going to hell yeah

Maybe you’re going to hell yeah

For all our wicked crimes

But if we’re already going to hell yeah

Hell we might as well get stoned and crucified

Stoned and crucified

Letter to my heavenly father

Would you worry ’bout me drowning or just walking on water

Always felt that you would grab me ‘fore I dearly departed

Loved you dearly but despair’s all I feel when I frolic around the weary word is bad but it was broken by preachers, pay my offerings

But officers was living like leeches, I’m feelin’ lost in me

Church but my apartment is the smokers hangout

Behind my building is the dealers crib

They smoke and hangout

I go to school with all the dealer’s kids

They love to bang out

They know it’s wrong but they don’t feel the need to open their mouth

I thought you said the truth was taught by those who go in your house

But all I see is liars lying on my grandmomma’s couch

You made a kingdom out of solomon, I see you disregard the sin

But what about the sodom and gomorrah shit is hopeless it’s the crap

I hope you’re not offended by the thoughts inside my mind

But hell it’s hard to admit it’s all you got I’ll take my side

RAG’N’BONE MAN Die Easy

When it comes to bury me

Put a fifth of rum in my hand

Might as well come and take my soul

‘Cause I can’t take it to the promised land

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

The devil’s gonna make up my dying bed

Meet me, brother, meet me

For I have so much to say

Might as well come and take my soul

Cause I won’t need it on my dying day

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

The devil’s gonna make up my dying bed

In my time of dying

I don’t want nobody to mourn

All I want for my friends to do

Is to hold my dying arms

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

So I can die easy

The devil’s gonna make up my dying bed

RAG’N’BONE MAN Ego

Runnin’ wild, round a roundabout

Got it figured out, why you only go in circles

You can lie, all your walls around

All them building blocks

No exit, no exit

Baby I know my gospel but I ain’t a preacher

Sorry to burst your bubble, but somebody needs to

We’re-a feed your ego

Ego

Bang bang baby, down you fall

Ain’t you mister know it all?

Ego

Ego

Bang bang baby, down you fall

Ain’t you mister know it all?

Sing it loud just like you believe

Everything you said was perfect

Livin’ life so delusional

You could lose it all

No question, no question

Baby I know my gospel but I ain’t a preacher

Sorry to burst your bubble but somebody needs to

We’re-a feed your ego

Ego

Bang bang baby, down you fall

Ain’t you mister know it all?

Ego

Bang bang baby, down you fall

Ain’t you mister know it all?

I bet you stopped to see the car crash didn’t you?

You told yourself that it’s a rotten world didn’t you?

Personified the greatness and reap the rewards

Convinced the words are something real ’til they’re strikin’ a chord

You musta been

Pushing your way so your headpiece is so big

You so rotten my brother, what a way to live

Top of the food chain, trucking the loose chains

But who are they to say you got no taste

You got no hold bars, mister know it all

A noble star, he don’t know that he won’t go far

Cuz he ain’t no fool, but he’s tucked up at night

With a belly full of “I’m so cold”, and that’s life

Baby I know my gospel but I ain’t a preacher (I ain’t a preacher)

Sorry to burst your bubble but somebody needs to

We’re-a feed your ego

RAG’N’BONE MAN Fade To Nothing

Don’t you be so foolish

Think that I’ll be around

When you made your mind up

With your feed on solid ground

I could be anyone, anyone

As long as you are every single thing you want

Think you can run in there

Sure all along

That’s where you got me wrong

How many times can we put ourselves through this world

Like all the lovers that been here before

How many times can we watch this fade into nothing

No nothing, no nothing at all

Don’t ask for my opinion

You can face the truth

Everytime I leave myself open

You lie on me to lose

I could be anyone, anyone

As long as you are every single thing you want

Think you can run in there

Sure all along

That’s where you got me wrong

How many times can we put ourselves through this world

Like all the lovers that been here before

How many times can we watch this fade into nothing

No nothing, no nothing at all

Why do we sit and suffer

Through our darkest days

It’s time we play it over

We make the same mistakes

And that’s where we got this wrong

How many times can we put ourselves through this world

Like all the lovers that been here before

How many times can we watch this fade into nothing

No nothing, no nothing at all
