"Human" as written by Jonathan Michael Mclaughlin and Kevin Griffiths....
Can you tell me how we got in this situation,
I can't seem to get you off my mind,
All these ups and downs,
They trip up our good intentions,
Nobody said this was easy right?

after all we're only human,
Always fighting what we're feeling,
Hurt instead of healing,
After all we're only human,
Is there any other reason why we stay instead of leavin' after all

can we get back to the point of this conversation,
When we saw things through each others eyes,
Cause now all I see is ruin and devastation,
We all need some place we can hide inside and

after all we're only human,
Always fighting what we're feeling,
Hurt instead of healing,
After all we're only human,
Is there any other reason why we stay instead of leavin'

I'm smart enought to know,
That life goes by,
And it leaves a trail of broken bones behind,
If you feel I'm letting go,
Just give me time,
Ill come running to your side,

can you tell me how we got in this situation,
I can't seem to get you off my mind cause

(x3)
After all we're only human,
Always fighting what we're feeling,
Hurt instead of healing,
After all we're only human,
Is there any other reason why we stay instead of leavin' after all

any other reason
To stay instead of leavin'
After all, yeah

    General CommentScrubs always has the best songs!! Seriously, love the show...
    Anyways. This song's meaning is pretty obvious: we're all human and a lot of times we do the wrong things because...we're only human.

    General CommentI found this song because someone sent it to me, thinking I would love it which i do.
    Me and my guy always send each other lyrics and I sent him the first verse. Its beautiful, Scrubs has great taste in music.

    General CommentI think that it's about sin. "All these ups and down they trip up our good intentions" is something that I can relate to in that I often have good intentions, I want to do the right thing, but the fact is that I sin, and there's no way I can avoid that because "after all, we're only human." I do agree scrubs is awesome btw. anyway that's my take on it.
