Imagini din Siria devastată de război, în cel mai recent videoclip lansat de James Blunt

Someone Singing Along este al treilea single de pe discul The Afterlove, lansat de cântăreţul englez James Blunt în 2017.

Videoclipul piesei reuneşte imagini surprinse cu ajutorul dronei în zonele devastate de războiul sirian, izbucnit în 2011 şi care a ucis mai mult de jumătate de milion de oameni. Alte peste 12 milione de sirieni au fugit din calea armelor.

Scrise de James Blunt, alături Steve Robson şi Emily Warren, versurile invocă tragedia conflictelor şi efectele pe care acestea le au asupra relaţiilor dintre oameni.

Născut James Hillier Blount în 1974, cântăreţul s-a dedicat muzicii după o carieră militară în care a cunoscut ororile războiului.

James Blunt a cunoscut celebritatea cu hituri precum You’re Beautiful şi Goodbye My Lover, incluse pe albumul Back to Bedlam (2003). Au urmat All the Lost Souls (2007), Some Kind of Trouble (2010) şi Moon Landing (2013).

VERSURI:

Somebody’s gonna wave a flag
Somebody’s going to attack
Someone will tell you to take a side
Tell you their version of wrong or right
Somebody’s gonna let you in
Judged on the color of your skin
Slam a door in the face of your friend
Simply because you don’t look like him

And then you gotta find a way that you’re walkin’
Everybody’s walkin’
You gotta find the words to say when you’re talkin’
Everybody’s talkin’

So I built the words into a song
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along
And even if some notes are wrong
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along

‘Cause just one voice is not enough
I need to hear from everyone
And even when I’m dead and gone
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along

Somebody’s gonna build a wall
Then smash it with a cannon ball
Someone who somehow has got a gun
Will tell you who you can’t and you can love
Some people keeping all the cash
They’re gonna get away with that
Just ‘cause some people don’t think like me
Does that really make them the enemy?

And then you gotta find a way that you’re walkin’
Everybody’s walkin’
You gotta find the words to say when you’re talkin’
Everybody’s talkin’

So I built the words into a song
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along
And even if some notes are wrong
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along

‘Cause just one voice is not enough
I need to hear from everyone
And even when I’m dead and gone
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along

Make a noise
I can hear you now
Won’t you raise your voice
Just a little louder
Make a noise
I can hear you now
Won’t you raise your voice
Just a little louder

So I built the words into a song
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along
And even if some notes are wrong
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along

‘Cause just one voice is not enough
I need to hear from everyone
And even when I’m dead and gone
I’m hopin’ someone’s singing along
