Song Analysis ‘Human” By: Sevdaliza

I am very excited for today’s song analysis because I have recently discovered Sevdaliza, an Iranian-Dutch singer and songwriter who creates music you want to dance to, sing along with and often gives you something to think about as well. I chose this song in particular because it was the first of her songs I heard but also because for the shorter amount of lyrics that it has it still is one of my favorites of hers. In blue is the link to the music video which I urge you to watch but after reading through this post and composing your own mental idea of what you think it would be like because I assure you it will be a very interesting music video.



I am, I have
I breathe in and out
I own a heart
An ear and an eye
I’ve only been here one time

It’s passing me by
Been in and out
And in front of my judgmental eyes
My precious disguise
Business so cold
Can’t cope with my own
How to not fail

I only have a few brief comments to share with you on the lyrics to this song because I think it is very hard to do a deep, interpretative reading of this song but I do think something needs to be said. The raw language she uses creates this very earthy, simple, we exist attitude. We are here. We are. We have these things. Simply put, we live. We are human. Yet, as the lyrics above begin to delve into we also have lie and disguises and we pass judgement. Ultimately we ask ourselves: how to not fail?In short, we are human.

I am flesh, bones
I am skin, soul
I am human
Nothing more than human
I am sweat, flaws
I am veins, scars
I am human
Nothing more than human

I am flesh, bones
I am skin, soul
I am human
Nothing more than human

I am human
I am human

Thank you for reading and checking out this artist. I hope you

will come to enjoy her music as much as I do.
