"Human" as written by Blake Colin Lewis, Dave Katz, Samuel Hollander and Chris Richardson....
Come on, baby, dry your eyes
Wipe your tears
Never like to see you cry
Won't you please forgive me?

I wouldn't ever try to hurt you
I just needed someone to hold me
To fill the void while you were gone
To fill this space of emptiness

I'm only human of flesh and blood I'm made
Human, born to make mistakes

So many nights I longed to hold you
So many times I looked and saw your face
Nothing could change the way I feel
No one else could ever take your place

I'm only human of flesh and blood I'm made
Human, born to make mistakes (I am just a man, human)

Please forgive me

The tears I cry aren't tears of pain
They're only to hide my guilt and shame
I forgive you, now I ask the same of you
While we were apart I was human too

I'm only human of flesh and blood I'm made (I am just a man)
Human, born to make mistakes

    General Commentwhen you are in a long-distance relationship, especially as a teenager, its almost impossible to stay faithful. this seems to be the guilt of cheating on someone and trying to make them know that you love them more than everyone, but being cheated on is the worst feeling

    General CommentAgree with above comments. Obvious lyrics. About cheating. And best part is "While we were apart I was human too ". Nice song.

    General CommentThis song obviously is about the guilt of cheating on someone while being in a long-distance relationship and trying to make him or her know that your love for the person never ended.

    General CommentNope. Sorry. I could forgive infidelity....

    But rhyming "You" with "you" is indefensible.

    Get out.

    Go on.

    OUT !

    I mean it.

    Go ON !

    And i copied his hair !

    Sadly for us both, i still do.

    I bet nobody ever said to him though... "You were the one with the Tears For Fears hair weren't you"?

    No. I seethed. It's Human League, not Tears For Fears.

    Even Orzabal would object to the suggestion that he had Tears For Fears hair.

    Could be worse i suppose.
