I AM HUMAN

INTRO:

I was sick and tired

Of living to be mad

Now I am rewired

To feel good, not bad

 

I took all the beatings

From myself the “Chosen One”

Then with much undoing

I said, “Enough. I’m done.”

Enough. I’m done.

 

VERSE 1:

I find now that growing

At times grows painfully

Still now I’m sowing

Love instead of seeds

 

CHORUS:

Now how can I believe in you

If I do not believe in me

And how can I declare a view

If I have eyes that cannot see

I am human

I am full of err

Love has room to learn

And I am there

 

VERSE 2:

I give my whole heart

Well as much as I receive

Still I keep a part

For myself it’s fair to me

 

CHORUS:

Now how can I believe in you

If I do not believe in me

And how can I declare a view

If I have eyes that cannot see

I am human

I am full of err

Love has room to learn

And I am there

 

BRIDGE:

This life ain’t worth pain and grief

Feel the earth beneath your feet

Love too can heal despair

For love is everywhere

 

VERSE 3:

I was sick and tired

Of living to be sad

Now I’m rewired

To feel happy, now and glad

 

CHORUS:

Now how can I believe in you

If I cannot believe in me

And how can I declare a view

If I have eyes that cannot see

I am human

I am full of err

Love has room to learn

And I am there
