AND THEN IMEDIATELY BACK TO MAIN RIFF 1 (make sure you're on tempo)

Note: All Chords are Bar Chords!

(Repeat Main Riff 1 through all of this)
A squirrel in the tree is he watching me
Does he give a damn?
Does he care who I am?
I'm just a man, is that all I am
Are my manners misinterpreted words or only human?
I'm human
Murderous crow, hey what you know
What you reading about, what you hold in your toes
Is that a twig, are you a dove of peace
A black dove undercover, with another puzzle piece
Are you a riddle to solve all along?
Or am I over thinking thoughts of human after all
Only human
Made of flesh, made of sand, made of you and me

F G
The planet's talking about a revolution
Em Am
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
Dm
They've got a right to live their own life
Amaj
But we keep paving over paradise

Main Riff 1 (Only do it once)
'Cause we're only human
Fm (Bar Chord on the 8th Fret)
Yes we are
Gm
only human
A# A
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being
Main Riff 1 (Only do it once)
Only human
Fm
Yes we are, yes we are
Gm
Only human, only human, only human
A# A
So far...

(Repeat Main Riff 1 through all of this)
Up in the major's tree, the one he planted back when he was just a boy
Thinking 1923
Thirty meters and a foot, take a look, take a climb
What you'll find is the product of a seed
The seed is sown, all alone
It grows above, with a heart of love
Sharp and shelter of the animals of land and cold weather breathing
We're all breathing in

F G
The planet's talking about a revolution
Em Am
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
Dm
They've got a right to live their own life
Amaj
But we keep paving over paradise

Riff 1
'Cause we're only human
Riff 2
Yes we are
Riff 1
only human
A# A
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being
Riff 1
Only human
Riff2
Yes we are, yes we are
Riff1
Only human, only human, only human
A# A
So far...



A# A
And this place it will outlive me
C G
Before I get to heaven I'll climb that tree
F# F
And I will have to give my thanks
F# A#
For giving me the branch to swing on
A G# G
If I ever fall in love
F# F
I'll have to give myself a baby
F# G#
I will let my children have their way

Main Riff 1 (Repeat 4x without singing)

Riff 1
'Cause we're only human,
Riff2
yes we are
Riff1
Only human,
A# A
so far, so far

Outro: Main Riff 1 2x
