about

One Cure for Man has given us another piece of musical gold with “Humble.” Fantastic to listen to, a tender and thought-provoking tribute to those dear to him who are no longer with us, and yet another track we can all learn something from." - Music Talkers

"A song that possesses the unique ability to make you feel so uplifted and optimistic about the future yet so perfectly reflective about the past" - Unison Music & Events

"Humble is a beautifully bittersweet track that showcases poetic prowess and a real human compassion" - RGM Magazine

"Beautiful lyrics, an immediately addictive melody, superb vocals and a guitar solo I played through about five times it really is that gorgeous." - Leo Sigh Reviews

"Humble is a meaningful and smart piece of music that does an excellent job of tugging on the heartstrings of most who will hear it." - The Sounds Won't Stop

"Rich, warm and insatiable, his dulcet tones encase you in a warm blanket of awesomeness but without distracting from the poignancy of the track. Beautifully crafted with a natural talent for music, One Cure For Man is hypnotic, emotional and soul-stirring." - The Other Side Reviews

"It is a brilliant song with a big heart. Lyrically, ‘Humble’ is relatable and reaches out to touch the listener. A wonderful composition." - FV Music Blog

“Humble” is a soft-rock/Country pop song with rocking guitars and James’ superb multi-toned vocals layering each element of the soundtrack and once again telling a very human story as James is more than able to offer." - Talk About Pop Music

lyrics

Humble Lyrics (c)James Parkinson 2020

Painting over
The tea-stains of time
While music plays at the back of our minds

The smell of change
And future lives
Time fading slowly like a child

People move on
Change their lives
Take the very thing that breathes
And dies
We can still be humble
So can I
Humble
All those lives

Memories are old
Like forgotten lives
Self-love clings to the end of time

If we only could
Change the rust of life
Paint over the cracks and seal the lies

We can move on
Take our time
Take the very thing that breathes
And dies
We can still be humble
So can I
Humble
You and I

Guitar Solo

People move on
Change their lives
Take the very thing that breathes
And dies
We can move on
Take our time
Take the very thing that breathes
And dies
We can still be humble
So can I
Humble
You and I
We can still be humble
So can I
Humble
All those lives
