Christina Perri – Human lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want

Be your number one
I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am


I can do it
I can do it
I can do it


[Chorus]
But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human
And I crash and I break down

Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart

I'm only human, yeah

[Verse 2]
I can turn it on
Be a good machine

I can hold the weight of worlds
If that's what you need
Be your everything


I can do it
I can do it
I'll get through it


[Chorus]
But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human
And I crash and I break down

Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
I'm only human, yeah


[Bridge]
I'm only human
I'm only human
Just a little human


I can take so much
Until I've had enough


[Chorus]
‘Cause I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I'm only human, yeah

    I think what she is saying is that she can do it all of these things and not complaining but she's only human I think this is about self respect them telling her to be perfect be nice but she can't take it any more she is done she can only take a certain amount like when it say I bleed when I fall down she can't help that all of this gets to her so she crashes and falls and hits the floor I fell all of this pressure for whatever I do and I crash and fall I Need help please and human gave me so much help and empowerment we are all human we can only take so much and we reach our limit we bust or hit the floor and she says she and how he build he up then knocks her back down is happening in society now all the time critics and parents for ball or music grades anything there kids do all they do is push and we can take it I gets stuck and we think we aren't good enough I'm twelve I get pushed and push thanks to her for this song because I'm only human.

    She can only go to a certain level before you falls. She makes mistakes but trys to do her best to make them happy. She feels that she can do it if there is no pressure on her but she won't ever be perfect that's why she's human. That's what makes her unique, she's saying to them, and that she will mess up because of who she is. Feels like it would hurt her so she states that she can only take so much. I'm twelve and I am only human. Do not force me to be perfect because I"M not. Nobody is. So don't say anything about me that's rude and unknown to you because your just as bad.
