Human
Sevdaliza Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 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 human
I am human
Human
Human

Overall Meaning

Sevdaliza's "Human" is a beautiful and introspective exploration of the human experience. At its core, the song speaks to the inherent vulnerability of existence and the struggle to find meaning and purpose in a world that can often feel cold and unforgiving. The opening lines, "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," set the tone for the rest of the song - a contemplation of what it means to be alive in this world, with all its beauty and pain.


Throughout the song, Sevdaliza speaks to various aspects of the human experience, from our tendency to judge ourselves and others ("Been in and out / And in front of my judgmental eyes / My precious disguise") to the struggle to cope with the harsh realities of life ("Business so cold / Can't cope with my own / How to not fail"). But despite these challenges, the chorus serves as a reminder that we are all human, with all the flaws and imperfections that come with it: "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."


As a whole, "Human" is a poignant and introspective examination of the human experience, inviting listeners to embrace their own humanity and find beauty in the imperfection and vulnerability that come with it.

Shes dancing inside what looks
very much to me like indoor arena used for horses. When horses are shown
often they are lead out in their show rugs and the rug is taken off
once in there, like an 'unveiling' but mainly its kept on to keep them
clean because days go into washing and grooming presenting them for
shows, certain breeds are shown in flashy head collars and 'jewels'.
They then 'perform' whilst people watch them, watching them for all
different kinds of reasons, for their sheer beauty, because its their
job and they are interested in purchasing or to relax, entertainment all
different reasons.  She has horse legs which for me only adds to that
meaning, especially when the camera swings down and you see nothing but
horse legs.

There are so many meanings that could be pulled from
this but personally to draw from the quote under the vid also could go so deep.
But I see the comparison of some people to animals, animals get watched a lot, we put them in zoos, show them etc. When
an artist performs people watch them for many reasons, people are put
on pedestals, especially those involved in art/entertainment and many
people see illusions seeing them as more than 'human', hence the lyrics.
Especially women in flashy underwear, make up, nice bodies dancing,
people get mesmerised, the same with dressage horses. Some people see
more beauty in dressage horse for example than an obese laminitic pony
stuck in a muddy field, some people see both.    People don't often see
the hours of work that goes into things think these airbrushed ' gods'
or 'goddesses' just appear

Those who are seeing 'evil' would you care to explain why please? which parts are you seeing this?

This song is based on a mythology of women that will be so irresistible above the waist that men will not see the hooves n legs n they’ll lure the men into a cave n eat them. She’s my hero!
