About the Album

Release of the fifth single from Erik Borelius' fifteenth album. The Humble One – a tribute to the humble. The Humble One He seldom argues, he rarely fights it makes no difference if he’s wrong or right His voice often gentle in a humble approach thoughtful and candid, not to impose I praise modest people the mindful ones I befriend May their ways be defended from the bullies of this world And let them be free from the desire to impress People who listen rather than speak leave the shallow, experience the deep know how the world is not evolving around them It is not about winning or losing, nor to lecture a friend Life is a giant puzzle, man a tiny piece Sharing his wisdom for the humble to seize Contentment and patience, a rare trait these days yet worth all honor, worth all praise —————————— Erik Borelius sings, plays the instruments, and has made the album art.
