Songtekst

I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth
Meeting so many people
Who are trying to be free
And while I'm traveling I hear so many words

Language barriers broken
Now we've found the key
And if you want the wind of change
To blow about you
And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word
Only who is the artist
We got to agree
A thousand miles can lead so many ways

Just to know who is driving
What a help it would be
So if you want this world of yours
To turn about you
And you can see exactly what to do
Please tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

How can we understand
Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you see a frightened
Person who is frightened by the
People who are scorching this earth.

I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth
Meeting so many people
Who are trying to be free
And while I'm traveling I hear so many words

Language barriers broken
Now we've found the key
And if you want the wind of change
To blow about you
And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

How can we understand
Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you see a frightened
Person who is frightened by the
People who are scorching this earth.

Music is the traveller crossing our world
Meeting so many people bridging the seas
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.
We're just the singers in a rock and roll band.
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band...

Trivia

"I'm just a singer (in a rock and roll band)" was de laatste single van de Moody Blues voorafgaand aan hun vijf jaar onderbreking. Er werd afgesproken dat de bandleden elk hun eigen solo carrière konden opstarten of uitbouwen.

"For my lady" (b-kant van de single) werd geschreven door fluitist en zanger Ray Thomas. Vanwege het complexe karakter van het lied speelden The Moody Blues het nummer alleen live wanneer ze werden ondersteund door een live orkest, omdat Ray Thomas niet kan zingen en spelen op de fluit op hetzelfde moment
