Bonobo - The Plug Lyrics

Didn't mean to tell you,
But I guess you got to know.
Didn't mean to tell you
But I guess you're a part of it
Still no way from what I've got to do
Broke me down, what you did
But you were never there
But I guess you've got to know..

    "The Plug"

    Didn't mean to tell you,
    But I guess you got to know.
    Didn't mean to tell you
    But I guess you got to know...

    Didn't mean to tell you
    But I guess you got to know.
    Didn't mean to tell you
    But I guess you got to know.

    Stole me away from your backdoor,
    Brought me down with shame,
    But you'll never bare my name,
    But I guess you got to know...

    Didn't mean to tell you
    But I guess you got to know.
    Didn't mean to tell you
    But I guess you got to know.

  7. jeffrey mbugua

  11. Tab McLain

    Tonight I was walking through a remote village in Sapa, Vietnam and this song was playing inside a shack called the Color Bar. I immediately recognized it and thought I'd come here to share with everyone how neat I thought that was.


    i know this was posted three years ago, but i love this. its so cool how music can connect people from completely different places.

    Alexander Walker

    It's always great to catch people listening to exciting music in out-of-the-way places. Some people are undeterred.

  12. dom b

    Bonobo you sexy bitch

  13. Astroboter

  16. Real hip hop is consciousness


    Tom Jacobs


    Didn't mean to tell you,
    But I guess you've got to know

    Stole me away from your backdoor
    Brought me down with shame

    But you'll never ??
    But I guess you've got to know


    it's a lot clearer if you listen to it on cd or vinyl


    Didn't mean to tell you, but I guess you got to me... Stole them away from your backdoor...Broke me down with shame.

  17. dinesh bhat

    This kind of explainable, unrealistic, mesmerizing  music should not exist on this planet.!! it is too much to take.. i don't know what to do with life anymore after listening to this.!! respects.!!

    Paul Tondera

    Well said. But it lets us learn to love life and ourselves in its imperfecction :) And this love is probably the strongest thing there is.




    awake in heaven

  18. TheSinisterPress

    I can't find my glasses. I've searched all throughout the house. I even went back to the car to look for them.
    They seem to be gone. I must find them or else I can't see.
    They are not just any glasses.  When you look through them you can see the world more clearly.
    Possibilities which have previously been invisible start to become obvious.
    I gotta get in the car. Drive down that long road through the woods until I finally arrive at the beach only like two people know about.
    I sit in the sand and stare at the horizon. When the boat is finished I shall travel that ocean and find her..

  19. Mp3

    What's the original song on 1:10 ?! That saxophone makes this song perfect.

    Bradley Pham

    I wanna know this, too. It's somewhere from my childhood and so familiar my friend and I both recognize it but can't put a finger on it.

  20. chekoblaster

    this has become an anthem for me, like I go through everyday life ..subconsciously hearing this linger into ears

  21. Manu Petibon

    although it is difficult to identify with certainty what is your favorite song, for 4 years now, this song has been mine. and it will remain for several years, if it is not for the rest of my life. bonobo is a Genius. 

    Manu Petibon

    the time you've been listening to it doesnt matter at all, im sure we are feeling the same for this song: i remember those incomprehensible tears on the first times i heard it, and i feel like still today i could cry, just by closing my eyes and singing it. this is not happiness or sorrow or anything descriptible whit words, just this is what this song makes me feel, every cell from my hair to my feet send me the message: this is the one, dude. and make cry. im not ashamed by this point, cause in my opinion this feeling is so strong n huge n imperious, it would litteraly  hurt to keep it inside when it occurs. and this feeling doesnt disappear, even after hearing more than 500 times.  and will remain the same in 500 listens more  (i guess)

  23. dolphinika

    Thank you! Didn't know that...

    Ansley Dunbar - Double Lovin'

  25. Hiandbye95

    Sure, it's called Double Lovin'.

  26. Daniel Bjorndahl

    do you know the song name the lyrics are from?

  27. WeWantHxC

    Does anyone know where the violin sample is from ?

  28. MOHAMED ALI Khlifi

    you made my day XD

  29. Hiandbye95

    Wow, the samples are from the little known (but really great) blues/soul band "The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation.

    That's really cool.


    I don't think they are little known, but I agree they're good :D

  30. VPD

    you have so amazing artists in Greece similar to Bonobo (feel free to check out Mononome, Somehowart, Kill Emil, Apanemic, GDaddy, Ntlisten, Daidalosone...)

  31. Jaurus Alexander

    I can hear this song playing at the beginning of GTA 5

  32. Tania de la Combe

    Animal magic...

  33. MrCockSlut

    Ive been looking for that sick tune off that nokia advert since about 2002

  34. Sow The ARToon

    ^.^ COLD SONG ^.^

  35. CephalopodsRock

    Down tempo and trip hop

  36. Anda Z

    and this goes for all Bonobo's masterpieces :)

  37. KnifeThrowingPanda

    Bonobo style is Down-tempo, or something like that I think.

  38. BlackThoven

    Yeah, this could be considered trip-hop, but I'd say it's more downbeat electronic music. They're pretty similar, anyhow.

  39. Señor Coperfield

    an amazing piece of real art!! this is trip-hop right? or just instrumental?

  40. Poseidon's Playground

    Simply Amazing!

    I've named my parrot Bonobo about three years ago, out of respect for this man and what he does with sounds. I like to ride my bycicle while listening to his creations and when i do a smile comes to my face without my knoledge.
    Thank you Bonobo!

  87. SanDiego

    @RAHdub1 So many people feel the exact same way... That's what happens when you do not follow the flock.. Bonobo is pure magic; if you are in Seattle on the 30th of Nov 2010, you should be at the Showbox.

  88. thereaper2110

    this is emotionally exquisite

  89. Patrick Bailey

    @RAHdub1 this isnt party music man. listen to this in a relaxed envrioment.

    @RetroSpecsify true : )

  91. Rich Gaskill

    I've really gotten into this artist a lot as of late...I catch them on the Buzzoutroom every now and then, on Groove Salad too. This is one song that moves me much like it does others here commenting. BTW - Simon' new album "Black Sands" is a great find too! Check it out. ~Thank You Senor for the wonderful music!

  92. dolphinika

    @RUDIE110 You've expressed the essence of Bonobo's art so beautifully... I greet your intelligence...

  93. Danni Rudie

    Bonobo you have not only summed up my soul but refreshed my inner self as well as hundreds of beautiful human beings out there that have felt the emotions through your art. Thank you- you beautiful, intelligent person.

  94. D B

    I wish more people could appreciate this kind of stuff. This is what I want to jam to at parties.
