“Alone” Burnaboy song meaning: What is the song “Alone” about?

In the song “Alone” by Burnaboy, the artist seems to sing about how late American “Black Panther” actor, Chadwick Boseman must have felt separated from others when he was suffering from cancer.

He sings about the lack of support from people, and one’s struggles to survive when suffering from a serious health condition that may lead to death.

Burnaboy is filled with memories and prays to God not to make him suffer downfall and die yet or because they rob him of actualizing his true dreams.

Burnaboy “Alone” Lyrics

Intro

Hmm hmm, hmm hmm

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm hmm

Verse 1

It’s just another night

Just another fight for my life

It’s alright, because everything dies

Nobody know why

Wetin I go do? (What will I do)

Wetin you go do? (What will you do?)

When you feelin’ like you fallin’

And you can’t find nothing to hold on to?

Memories, uh-uh-oh, carry me, go (Memories take me)

Carry me, go, oh-no, yeah (Take me)

Sick and tired of it all, take me far away

Mr. DJ, gbemi trabaye (Mr. DJ, take me high.)

Now man no fit trust anybody (Man can’t trust anybody.)

Na hin make I no fit shout (That’s why I can’t shout.)

Chorus

My body don dey tire, eh (My body is getting tired.)

E make me madder, eh (It makes me angrier.)

My head don scatter, eh (My head is scattered/I am confused.)

My holy father, eh

My body don dey tire, eh (My body is getting tired.)

E make me madder, eh (It makes me angrier.)

When my whole world is set on fire

Don’t leave me alone

Verse 2

Wetin you go do? (What will you do?)

Wetin you go do (What will you do?)

When you’re feelin’ like you’re screaming really loud

But nobody hears you

I see it in your eyes

I see in your eyes the betrayal and the lies

You’ve been pullin’ out knives from your behind

Count every blessing

Count every lesson

You fit no dey tomorrow (You may not be available/alive tomorrow.)

So I count every second

Don’t let them take my head

And dance over my dead

Body, yeah

Body, yeah

I’m weak, I’m blind

Give me the strength

I need for my padi, yeah (That I need for my pal.)

Padi, yeah (Yes, my pal.)

Chorus

My body don dey tire, eh (My body is getting tired.)

E make me madder, eh (It makes me angrier.)

When my whole world is set on fire

Don’t leave me alone

Bridge

Don’t leave me, don’t leave me

Don’t leave me, don’t leave me

Don’t leave me, don’t leave me, oh God

Don’t let me go down, don’t let me go down

As far as I can see, na the memories (So far, it is the memories I can see.)

Dem dey carry me from reality (They are taking me from reality.)

No require visa; I have been (It doesn’t require visa; I have been…)

Very quietly dying

And I need you to remind me why

Give me the strength to keep fightin’

‘Cause I no fit trust anybody (‘Cause I can’t trust anybody.)

Na hin make I no fit shout (That’s why I am unable to shout.)

Chorus

My body don dey tire, eh (My body is getting tired.)

E make me madder, eh (It makes me angrier.)

My head don scatter, eh (My head is scattered/I am confused.)

My holy father, eh

My body don dey tire, eh (My body is getting tired.)

E make me madder, eh (It makes me angrier.)

When my whole world is set on fire

Don’t leave me alone
