BELLY – ‘Human Child’ – Rockwood Music Hall NEW YORK 2018…

Ecstatic live performances

A stirring vox and a heart-touching pop pearl. Need no more to create magic…

We hold life tight to our chests
Slip it on like a dress
We’re oh so faithfully possessed
We let ourselves be owned by things long gone
Old photographs, old songs
Wrap us in ghosts

Oh human child
Your face to the wind, your back to the sun
Oh human child
You’re digging up bones and miss all the fun

I’m not here to save you I’m just trying to get you outside
Get yourself out of your way and pull your head out of the shade

A bird takes off into above
We follow with our eyes but never grab hold, never own it
That’s as it should be, as it was and ever will be
So let’s stop moaning, stop your sobbing

Oh human child
Your face to the wind, your back to the sun
Oh human child
You’re digging up bones and miss all the fun

I’m not here to save you I’m just trying to get you outside
Get yourself out of your way and pull your head out of the shade

Nothing ever dies but we still gotta let it go
Let your beauty sing across time and stop tryin’ oh no no
Nothing ever dies but we still gotta let it go

Some trick of the light pulls me upright
Makes me laugh out loud into the emptiness
Some pull on the hair, somebody there
Makes me stare wide eyes into the emptiness

Oh human child
Your face to the wind, your back to the sun
Oh human child
You’re digging up bones and miss every point

It’s a beautiful night, I’m here to drag you outside
Pull your head out of the shade, my sun-blessed babe
It’s a beautiful night, I’m here to drag you outside
Pull your ass out of the shade, my sun-blessed baby
