Only Human
by Jason Mraz



A squirrel in the tree is he watching me?
Does he give a damn? Does he care who I am?
I'm just a man, is that all I am?
Are my manners misinterpreted words or only human?
I'm human

Murderous crow, hey what you know
What you reading about, what you hold in your toes
Is that a twig, are you a dove of peace
Black dove undercover, with another puzzle piece
Are you a riddle to solve all along?
Or am I over thinking thoughts
I'm human after all, only human
Made of flesh, made of sand, made of human

The planet's talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
They've got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

'Cause we're only human
Yes we are, only human
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being only human
Yes we are, only human
So far, so far

Up in the Major's tree, the one he planted back when he was just a boy
Back in 1923
Thirty meters and a foot, take a look, take a climb
What you'll find is the product of a seed
The seed is sown, all alone
It grows above, with a heart of love
Sharp and shelter of the animals of land and cold weather breathing
We're all breathing

The planet's talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
They've got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

'Cause we're only human
Yes we are, only human
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being only human
Yes we are, only human, so far, so far

And this place it will outlive me
Before I get to heaven I'll climb that tree
And I will have to give my thanks
For giving me the branch to swing on
If I ever fall in love
I'll love to give myself a baby
I will let my children have their way

Because we're only human, yes we are
Only human, so far, so far
So far, so far
