It is only love I feel
That will give us peace of heart
In my hour of desperate need
I feel closer to the one
Oh but why

Please human being
If you bleed they will say that it is destined
They'll be punching tickets by the minute
If you fall out of line

Desperate, desperate

Tell me is it death you feel
That will bring you peace of life
Tell me who won last, tell me who won
Tell me who won last, tell me who won
When you lose your self-esteem
That's when love dies
Oh

Please human being
If you bleed they will say that it's destined
They'll be punching tickets by the minute
If you butt out of life
We're mere human beings
We die, so desperate, desperate

Well I feel when you reach number one
You look like you're bluffing
But really you'll be blocking the sun
Blocking the sun
Blocking the sun

We're mere human beings
We die
It's destined
They'll be punching tickets by the minute
If you fall out of line
We're mere human beings, we're mere human beings
We die,
Desperate, it's destined
We're mere human beings, we die
Destined, it's destined, destined

    General CommentThis is my favorite Seal song
    from my favorite album ever (I'm serious)
    though I think it's kinda wierd that this song is about B.I.G.'s and Tupac's deaths. Neither the lyrics nor the music video alludes to them, and I doubt Seal was that close to them

    whatever, this song is very special to me, and I love it.=)
