Jason MrazOnly Human (From The Casa Nova Sessions)

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 overthinking 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 Oh yes we are, only human If it’s our only excuse, do you think we’ll keep on being only human? Oh 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 A sharpened 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 Oh yes we are, only human If it’s our only excuse, do you think we’ll keep on being only human? Oh 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 hope to give myself a baby I will let my children have their way Because we’re only human Oh yes we are, only human, so far, so far So far, so far
