The kiss that never happened
The call that never came
The hurt you masked by laughin'
The one that got a way
It's all in a day of emotional traffic
Stranded, broken and tragic

Chorus (Together)
Finding out you're only human is hard
I wanna change the world
But I don't know where to start
And I am fool enough to believe
There's hope among the ruin
Finding out you're only human

I tried to touch the sky
Fell right to the ground (and I fell right to the ground)
Did my best to fly
But I just kept falling down
Some hopes and dreams were shattered
Expectations broken and battered


(Tim) Oh human enough to forgive
(Ne-yo) Oh human enough to embrace all there is, whoa
(Tim) And I am fool enough to believe (Ne-yo echoes-to believe)
(Together) There's hope among the ruin


(Ne-yo) Only human
(Tim) Oh, you're only human
(Ne-yo) We're only human
(Tim) Oh, we're only human
(Ne-yo) Yes, we're only human
(Tim) We're only human
(Ne-yo) Only human
(Ne-yo) We're only, we're only
(Tim) We're only human
(Ne-yo) We're only, we're only
(Tim) Oh, we're only human
