"Someone Singing Along"

Somebody's gonna wave a flag
Somebody's going to attack
Someone'll 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 the 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 hoping 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 hoping someone's singing along

Somebody's gonna build a wall
Then smash it with a cannonball
Someone who somehow has got a gun
Will tell you who you can and you can't 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 walking
Everybody's walking
You gotta find the words to say when you're talking
Everybody's talking

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

Written by James Blunt, Steve Robson and Emily Warren



I love this song. Catchy, easy and fun to sing along with. My son and I love singing this in the car. I look demented, I'm sure, but it's so good. .

One of my favourites so far itís thoughtful with a fun melody. It reminds me of the sentiment in I Canít Hear The Music from ATLS

Thank you for the link Aline ! (though I'm still trying to get past the ads...)

I know most of you probably won't care but my colleague at school (who teaches music -- I teach English as a foreign language) agreed to help work on the song with my 14 year olds !

I'm excited to be able to use one of James's songs in class

I really like the video with the song. The imagery is sobering to the reality of this world. With all that's happened recently, this song is more relevant today then ever.

I live in a very diverse city. You see the good and bad in people from every corner. It's easy to see the stereotypes, but also easy to met someone who breaks that stereotypes.

I just hope that decent human beings everywhere can ban together and keep on treating one another with tolerance, compassion, respect. Maybe then, we can be a force to rebuke those who insist we can't get along.

I had the honour to make a video for such a meaningful song by #JamesBlunt and even more of an honour to carry out this message.
This is not a post apocalyptic video set up, this is Syria today... This is what war does to people! Will we ever learn?!

When I knew I'll be making a video for James Blunt, I was like "OMG Mum I'm finally gonna make a video for an artist you like!!" But then when I pitched this idea, I thought there's no way my treatment will get approved. I thought no one in the pop music industry wants to shed light on whats happening in Syria.... Today I'm proud to have done this and respect to James and Warner for producing a project with a cause!
