James Blunt - Someone Singing Along Lyrics

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

  23. Acton Jackson

    Thank you🌈🌻

  24. Doctrine Ridge

    should have be titled Anti-Trump

  25. Alla Derzhavina

    Could you please consider posting karaoke version for all these beautiful songs which sometimes have less attention but so meaningful? That would be a great tradition to post the karaoke versions not by the different karaoke channels, but by artists themselves... on their channels. At least for those who write their song by themselves... Why not?

  26. Horse girl 1-2-3

    This is soo sad i,m thinking now how lucky i am and i want to help those peolpe they have soo Bad 😭😭😭😭😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

  27. Tracey Lee sam

    Donald trump needs to listen to this.

    rek tel

    This is the reason why we supported Donald Trump, he helped ending the war in Syria. What about you get your facts right?

  28. Crosh Perry

    Legend says, James Blunt may not have fans like other artists but the little he has are the ones that have true feelings and a beautiful soul💙.

  29. Asadul Hossain

    Love from Bangladesh 😭🇧🇩🇧🇩🇧🇩

  30. Hemant Sahu

  31. bali meg

    i love it

  32. Super Al

    2019 but so sad that this song doesn't get more attention...what's wrong with this world

  33. Jen D

    If the news showed footage like this, I would hope people would understand better. All we see is a few seconds showing the bombing of ruins. This shows what those ruins are. They're homes and there's thousands of them in pieces. The people who live there are in pieces too or seeking sanctuary in other countries. My thoughts, prayers and love are with all Syrians who want their homes, families, communities and nation back. x

  34. Sheekha Beerta

    I, m sorry Syria people always i will be pry 🇸🇾🙏😔😔

  35. Reem Abbas

    Lyrical masterpiece, most probably that's why it was never a massive hit but these words will stay and someone will sing it along - even after many decades!

    This commemt is in spanish because my inglish is not perfect, ok? No entiendo cómo un ser humano puede soportar tanta carga como para llegar a matar a gente inocente, esta guerra le está costando la vida a miles de soldados y civiles, desde España espero que se pase pronto y que Siria vuelva a ser como antes 😍😥

  68. Alejandro Eder

    A song that impacts in the depths of my emotions.

    "Life is very dangerous, not for people who do evil,
    But for those who sit down to see what happens. "
    Albert Einstein

    "I'm going to tell God everything"
    To the memory of the little Syrian boy Mushtad ",
    His innocent life was quenched by a war.
    I invoke his last words ...
    To the memory also of all children.
    Who have been victims of this atrocity.

    On the other side of these turbid rivers

    On the other side of these turbid rivers where the stars are camped.
    where the awakening of hope turns into magic
    In a place where the sentinel colors do not paint dividing lines.
    Where storms become a breeze, they calm down.
    in a place where I can hold my enemy strongly
    Where dreams are built without sunsets or somber suns.
    On the other side of these muddy rivers, where the trenches do not exist
    Where there is no sound that terrifies and deafen my ears.
    On the other side of these murky rivers, where the soldier becomes a missionary.
    Where there are no blue lips or gray sunsets.
    Where there are no bloody fields or cold or eternal nights.
    On the other side of these muddy rivers where hunger and misery are silenced
    where the fear dies and the skin does not feel cold,
    where a gesture of anger does not become a challenge and the enemy is not shot,
    where the shadow of a gun does not cling to the innocence of a child.
    In a place where the rags do not taste like steel or lament ...
    On the other side of these murky rivers ...
    where the soul is torn when hearing the cry of the open wound of the earth ...
    You, who look at the sins of the world.
    You, who look at the sins of the world.
    You who nailed your body on the cross.
    have mercy, have mercy
    You, who look at the sins of the world,
    Give us peace, give us peace.

    Te respice in vobis peccata mundi
    Affixus cruci qui corpus
    Miserere, miserere.
    Te respice in vobis peccata mundi
    dona nobis pacem, dona nobis pacem.

  69. peter sharma

  72. Lora Omar

    When you love a singer for years and he sings a song about your country, the one nobody care about or give attention for ..
    James blunt..
    i hear this song since it was published alot.
    I hear it often.
    I hear it everyday.
    And i cry everyday.
    All the love to your heart and love and healing to all those who still suffer from war and loss..

  73. Master Bates

    Absolutely terrible meaning, but a catchy tune. That makes the song even worse.
