MILZERU – Usai sebelumnya telah merilis single berjudul “Champions”, tidak butuh waktu lama bagi James Blunt untuk kembali merilis single terbarunya yang berjudul “I Told You”. Penuh akan makna, single ini merupakan single ketiga yang akan masuk kedalam album studio keenam terbaru miliknya berjudul “Once Upon A Mind”.

Musisi asal Negeri Ratu Elizabeth ini telah menyatakan pendapat tentang album barunya dalam sebuah wawancara. Ia mengatakan kepada seluruh penggemarnya bahwa album ini sangat dekat dengan hatinya karena dia telah menulis lagu ini untuk waktu yang lama.

…Baby, take care of your heart

Every day that I'm not with you

If you're ever scared of the dark

Remember, I told you

Darling, I will never be far

Wherever you go I'll do too

Baby, I was there from the start

Remember, I told you…” Berikut adalah penggalan reff yang ada pada lagu terbaru James Blunt. Bait-bait yang cukup puitis.

Blunt secara langsung mendeskripsikan lagu “I Told You” sebagai “Hymn (Lagu yang dipersembahkan) bagi anaknya. Lagu “I Told You” merupakan lagu yang mengesankan dan sangat menyentuh sehingga sangat cocok dibawakan oleh seorang ayah kepada anak-anaknya yang dirasa tumbuh terlalu cepat. Jadi tidak heran, jika kalian merasakan nuansa kegembiraan dengan sedikit kemurungan disaat mendengarkan lagu ini. Secara musik, sesungguhnya keseluruhan dari single ini cukup enak didengar. Ritme yang ada dirasa cukup pas dan melebur bersama dengan suara khas dari Blunt.

 

Berikut lirik lengkap dari lagu “I Told You – James Blunt” :

Smiling all along but I was fakin'

Each and every second I was breakin'

I said that I was numb but I was achin' in my bones

The panic in my heart is hard to breathe through

This the kinda thing they never teach you

I never thought I'd ever have to leave you on your own

 

Baby, take care of your heart

Every day that I'm not with you

If you're ever scared of the dark

Remember, I told you

Darling, I will never be far

Wherever you go I'll do too

Baby, I was there from the start

Remember, I told you

 

Honestly it hurts too much to say this

So I will write it down and you can save it

And read it when I'm not around to say it for myself, yeah

Savor every moment 'cause they go fast

The fireworks are bright because they don't last

But promise me you'll walk along your own path, no one else's

 

Baby, take care of your heart

Every day that I'm not with you

If you're ever scared of the dark

Remember, I told you

Darling, I will never be far

Wherever you go I'll do too

Baby, I was there from the start

Remember, I told you

 

When you bump your head

And then you lose your thread

Darlin', I'll be there

Remember, I told you

From when it's all just plain

To your wedding day

Even when the pictures fade

Remember, I told you

 

So, baby, take care of your heart

Every day that I'm not with you

If you're ever scared of the dark

Remember, I told you

Darling, I will never be far

Wherever you go I'll do too

Baby, I was there from the start

Remember, I told you

 

So, baby, take care of your heart

Every day that I'm not with you

If you're ever scared of the dark

Remember, I told you

Darling, I will never be far

Wherever you go I'll do too

Baby, I was there from the start

Remember, I told you
