George Ezra - Blame It On Me

Song

"Blame It on Me" is a song by British singer-songwriter George Ezra. It was released as the fourth single from his debut studio album, Wanted on Voyage (2014). The song was released in the United Kingdom as a digital download on 11 August 2014 through Columbia Records. It debuted at number 6 on the UK Singles Chart, marking Ezra's second consecutive top 10 hit.

Background

Ezra explained the song to InStyle. "I wrote it when I was 18 and had just moved to Bristol. I was saddled with student loans, and I realised there were so many opportunities to play music, so unless I got busy, I could only blame myself."

Music video

An official lyric video to accompany the release of "Blame It on Me" was also issued on 20 June, with Ezra holding an old-fashioned TV with the lyrics appearing on it; at the same time, he is sitting on the seat of a dunk tank while several tennis balls are thrown towards it from off-screen. At the end of the bridge, a ball hits the button and Ezra falls into the water.

Ezra then holds the TV above his head for a while, whilst his face is barely visible. As the song ends, tennis balls are thrown towards the TV, which finally falls out of Ezra's hands and into the water. The video then ends with him laughing.

The official music video for "Blame It on Me" was directed by Rob Brandon. It was first released onto YouTube on 11 August 2014 at a total length of three minutes and forty-four seconds.

The video begins with a Ford pickup full of criminals driving past Ezra, who is carrying his guitar in its case, and a Japanese man. The man asks Ezra in Japanese, "Are you sure you want to follow the yellow brick road?" and then walks away without Ezra giving a response.

The rest of the video features Ezra having a very bad day, including his guitar case blowing open and the instrument falling out into the road before being run over by a police car; getting tackled by a rugby team; hit with a sucker dart fired from a toy pistol by a child, defecated on by a bird and winding up in the middle of a gunfight between police officers and the aforementioned criminals.

The video has over 54 million views as of December 2018.

Lyrics

The garden was blessed by the Gods of me and you
We headed west to find ourselves some truth, ooh
What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?
We counted all our reasons, excuses that we made
We found ourselves some treasure, and threw it all away
What you waiting for?
...

When I dance alone, and the sun’s bleeding down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil’s overused,
Blame it on me
What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?

Caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival
Your confidence forgotten, I see the gypsies run
What you waiting for?
...

When I dance alone, and the sun’s bleeding down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil’s overused,
Blame it on me
When I dance alone, I know I’ll go
Blame it on me ooh
When I’ll lose control, I know I’ll go
Blame it on me ooh
What you waiting for?
...

Testo

Il giardino è stato benedetto dagli dei di me e te
Ci siamo diretti ad ovest per ritrovarci un po 'di verità, ooh
Cosa stai aspettando?
Cosa stai aspettando?
Abbiamo contato tutte le nostre ragioni, le scuse che abbiamo fatto
Ci siamo trovati un tesoro e l'abbiamo buttato via
Cosa stai aspettando?
...

Quando ballo da solo e il sole sta sanguinando
È colpa mia
Quando perdo il controllo e il velo è abusato,
È colpa mia
Cosa stai aspettando?
Cosa stai aspettando?

Catturato dalla marea dei fiori, catturato nel carnevale
Hai dimenticato la tua fiducia, vedo correre gli zingari
Cosa stai aspettando?
...

Quando ballo da solo e il sole sta sanguinando
È colpa mia
Quando perdo il controllo e il velo è abusato,
È colpa mia
Quando ballo da solo, so che andrò
Dai la colpa a me ooh
Quando perderò il controllo, so che andrò
Dai la colpa a me ooh
Cosa stai aspettando?
...
