Some say the world is spinning faster
Some say it isn't fast enough
Some people say they've got the answer
And some are scared to say they can't keep up
I read the paper but it still isn't clear
The bombs are falling but I'm still here
I know all the figures and I know all the facts
But all I can do is keep trying...
To look for the human touch
Life is hard when you've got nothing
Life can be hard when you've got too much
Sometimes I wonder what's the difference
It's only better with someone to touch
I got the telephone stuck to my ear
I keep yelling but you don't hear
In all the universe I'm just a speck of dust
But all I can do is keep trying...
To give you the human touch
You know we're nothing in the scheme of things
Just microchips in big machines
And the world is spinning round and round
But I know that we can slow it down
And I know that I can make you see
I'm on the side of you and me
And all I want to do
Listen to me...
Is give you...give you
Give you the human touch
