Incorporating a Feel Good vibe…

Here at GFM, one hobby we love is crate-digging, reaching all the way back in the stash. Fam, it’s all for your listening pleasure. All throughout February we’ve been bringing #Growns the most love-filled, throwback jamz we could find. Here, we feel it would only be right to top it off with this classic soul ballad from a very distinguished gentleman just right for the occasion.

 

Jeffrey Osborne has delivered passionate soul into several performances throughout the decades. Fans of Osborne have followed him from his days in the 70s R&B band L.T.D (Love. Togetherness. Devotion).  Devoted listeners his music has defined his balladeer style as ‘real music’. Released in 1990, his album Only Human was one of his two final albums for the rest of the decade. The romantic, titled-track became a hit for Osborne, exclaiming one’s capability of imperfect characteristics. Mr. Osborne can make it plain for us, it’s #ForGrownsOnly now. Enjoy!

 

Sensitive, that’s what I am

Make no mistake about it
Cause little things

Certainly mean so much to me
Maybe I should tell you

That I have my faults
And there are no gaurantees

Oh Baby, can’t you see
I’m only human

Don’t ask me for too much too fast.
