Human (Deluxe) Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Run

When I was a young boy living in the city
All I did was run, run, run, run, run
Staring at the lights, they look so pretty
Momma said "Son, son, son, son, son
You're gonna grow up, you're gonna get old
All that glitters don't turn to gold
But until then just have your fun
Boy, run, run, run, run, run"

Yeah, run, run, run
Run, run, run

When I was a young kid living in the city
All I did was pay, pay, pay, pay, pay
And every single dime that good Lord gave me
I could make it last three, four, five days
Living it up but living down low
Chasing that luck before I get old
And looking back, oh, we had some fun
Boy, run, run, run, run, run

They tell you that the sky might fall
They'll say that you might lose it all
So I run until I hit that wall
Yeah, I learned my lesson, count my blessings
Look to the rising sun and run, run, run
Yeah, one day well the sky might fall
Yеah, one day I could lose it all
So I run until I hit that wall
If I learnеd one lesson, count your blessings
Look to the rising sun and run, run, run

Run, run, run

Didn't get everything that I wanted
But I got what I need, yeah, yeah
I see that light in the morning
Shining down on me
So take me up high, take me down low
Where it all ends nobody knows
But until then let's have some fun
Yeah, run, run, run, run, run

They tell you that the sky might fall
They'll say that you might lose it all
So I run until I hit that wall
Yeah, I learned my lesson, count my blessings
Look to the rising sun and run, run, run
Yeah, one day well the sky might fall
Yeah, one day I could lose it all
So I run until I hit that wall
If I learned one lesson, count your blessings
Look to the rising sun and run, run, run

Run, run, run
Yeah, run, run, run

Distance

I don't wanna only call your name when I'm brokenhearted, yeah
I already know how much I've got to lose, oh, ooh-oh, oh
I don't wanna have to crash and burn to be where we started, yeah
I don't wanna ever need a map to you, oh

I've run so far, been so high
I'll chase the sun 'til our time

But I ain't gonna keep my distance from you
Yeah, I already know what distance can do
If I let you get away, bury me today
Yeah, I ain't gonna keep my distance from you (Oh, yeah)

I'm so good at walls, good at lies, putting up my fences, oh, yeah
I'm human as it gets when it comes to you, oh, yeah
Looking in the mirror, seeing a man with a million faces, ooh, no
But every single one, they know the truth

But I ain't gonna keep my distance from you
Yeah, I already know what distance can do
If I let you get away, bury me today
Yeah, I ain't gonna keep my distance from you

[Instrumental Break]

I've run so far, been so high
I'll chase the sun 'til our time

But I ain't gonna keep my distance from you
Yeah, I already know what distance can do
If I let you get away, bury me today
Yeah, I ain't gonna keep my distance from you (Oh, yeah)

Someday

Some days, I'm treadin' the water
And feel like it's gettin' deep
Some nights, I drown in the weight
Of the things that I think I need
Sometimes, I feel incomplete, yeah
But you always say to me, say to me

Oh, you say someday, when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold
Yeah, won't we? (Won't we?) Won't we? (Won't we?)
Yeah, someday, when we're older
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Babe, happy (Happy), happy
Oh, you say someday, when we're older
We won't worry 'bout the things
That we don't need (We don't need), we don't need (Oh)
Yeah, one day, down the line
Before we both run out of time, you're gonna see
That someday, we'll be all that we need

Someday, we'll be all that we need

I've been the best, been the worst
Been a ghost in a crowded room (Oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)
I took a chance, took a turn
Took a dive, and it led to you (Oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)
So many times that I wish
We could be anywhere but here
So many times that I wish
I could see what you see so clear, so clear

Oh, you say someday, when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold
Yeah, won't we? (Won't we?) Won't we? (Won't we?) Yeah
Yeah, someday, when we're older
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Babe, happy (Happy), happy
Oh, you say someday, when we're older
We won't worry 'bout the things
That we don't need (We don't need), we don't need (Oh)
Yeah, one day, down the line
Before we both run out of time, you're gonna see
That someday, we'll be all that we need

Someday, we'll be all that we need

Oh, you say someday, when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold
Yeah, won't we? Won't we?
Mm, someday, down the line
Before we both run out of time, you're gonna see
That someday, we'll be all that we need

Didn't I

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we fly?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
But didn't we, didn't we say goodbye?

Swear that I saw your face
At a coffee shop on 8th
Or maybe it was in my mind?
And I swear that I heard your laugh
From a person that walked past me
At a party the other night

Never thought we'd ever have to go without
Take you over anybody else, hands down
We're the type of melody that don't fade out
Don't fade out, can't fade out

[Chorus]
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we fly?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
But didn't we, didn't we say goodbye?
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we try?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
Tell me why good things have to die

Do you remember all those plans
That we made after too many drinks
In the kitchen of your brother's apartment?
When life was like a wishin' well
4:00 AM and raisin' hell
Damn, I knew you oh-so well

Never thought we'd ever have to go without
Take you over anybody else, hands down
We're the type of melody that don't fade out
Don't fade out, can't fade out

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we fly?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
But didn't we, didn't we say goodbye?
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we try?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
Tell me why good things have to die

We had our moments, didn't we? (Oh)
So much that we will never be (Oh)

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we fly?
Know that I, know that I still care for you
But didn't we, didn't we say goodbye?
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I love you?
Didn't we, didn't we, didn't we try? (Try)
Know that I, know that I still care for you (For)
Tell me why good things have to die (To die)

Rescue Me

Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I'm by myself?
When I need your love? If I need your help?
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?

We don't talk much, not anymore
Broken bottles and slammin' doors
But we still care about each other
Say we care about each other
I know life took us far away
But I still dream 'bout the good old days
When we took care of each other
We were livin' for each other

But I start to wonder, wonder
If I'm slipping under, under (Oh, oh)

Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I'm by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Ah
Would you rescue me? (Would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me when I'm by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?

Yeah, I miss all the times we had
Can't forget what you can't get back
And you can't find it in another
Man, time, it ain't your lover
I don't care what you thought before
I'll be there anytime you call
Don't you ever call another
No need to call another

And I start to wonder, wonder
If I'm slipping under, under (Oh, oh)

Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Ah
Would you rescue me? (Would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me when I'm by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me? (Yeah)

Would you rescue me?
Oh, rescue me (Would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me? (When I'm by myself?)
(When I need your love, if I need your help)
Oh, rescue me
(Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?)


Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I'm by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Ah, would you rescue me?

Savior

I don't feel like I'm myself today
Something in me just let go
Took some medicine to numb the pain
Went so dark, you'd never know

I'm being honest with you now
Hangin' by a thread, am I?
Don't excuse this bad behavior

But tonight, I need a savior (Oh-oh)

Sometimes you need someone to save ya (Ooh-ooh)
Hoping you could be my savior (Oh, ooh-ooh, savior)

Forgot About You

I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you
I forgot about you
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you

I would run through fire for you even if it tore me up
Kill myself to satisfy you, but it was never good enough
Every time I needed you to catch me, you would always let me fall
So love me, hate me, burn me, blame me
I don't really care at all

I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you ('Bout you)
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you (Yeah, yeah)
I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you ('Bout you)
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you, 'bout you, 'bout you, 'bout you

I thought that I would die without you
But now I'm feeling more alive
I hope you're out there dancing somewhere
But that would be another lie
And I feel like maybe I should thank you if you ever try to call
So love me, hate me, burn me, blame me
I don't really care at all (I don't really care)

I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you ('Bout you)
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you (Yeah, yeah)
I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you ('Bout you)
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you, 'bout you, 'bout you, 'bout you

I finally see the things I used to never see before
Thought you were everything until I knew I needed more
I wished you well, I walked away, so what you waiting for?
What you waiting for?

I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you (You, you, you)
I forgot about you
I forgot about what you said
I forgot about what you did
I forgot about you ('Bout you)
I forgot about you (Woo)
I forgot about everything
And I ain't lookin' back your way
I forgot about you, 'bout you, 'bout you, 'bout you

(You)
Forgot about you, 'bout you, 'bout you

Somebody to Love

Never could imagine the way the story happened
You with someone new
I used to be your focus, now you don't even notice
When I leave the room

You weren't even tryin' to make me jealous
But you can't help it, you can't help it

And it kills me to know that you found
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Tell me how can I go on without
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Somebody to love
Somebody to love
Somebody to

They say that love comes easy
Whenever it comes easy and I see it on your face
I don't want you to be lonely
But right now, I'm the only one who feels this way

And I ain't even tryin' to make you miss me, make you miss me
I know we're history

But it kills me to know that you found
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Tell me how can I go on without
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Somebody to love
Somebody to love

[Interlude]
Somebody to
(Some-bo-dy-to-love-some-bo)
Somebody to
(Wooo)

You weren't even tryin' to make me jealous
But you can't help it, you can't help it

And it kills me to know that you found
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Tell me how can I go on without
Somebody to love, somebody to love
Somebody to love
Somebody to love

I used to be your focus, now you don't even notice
When I leave the room

Wanted

She said, "Every time I close my eyes I feel like I could disappear
I could overflow an ocean with the cavalcade of all my tears
And I know I sound dramatic, but that's just how it feels"
She said, "I'm holdin' to the notion that I'll find something real"

Yeah, I just want to be wanted, oh
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed, oh
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind
I just want to be someone that somebody needs
I just want to be more than a drop in the sea
I just want to be

She said, "I'm countin' up my karma and I think it's time to cash it in (Cash it in)
So tired of livin' in a shadow of a mountain of what might've been (Might've been)
And I know I sound dramatic, but that's just how it feels
I've been looking for somebody to tell me that I'm real"

I just want to be wanted (Oh)
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed (Oh)
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind
I just want to be someone that somebody needs
I just want to be more than a drop in the sea

I just want to be wanted
Oh yeah
We just want to be wanted
Ooh

I just want to be wanted
I could use a little love sometimes
I just need to be needed
Like to know I'm crossin' someone's mind

Take It Out On Me

Tell me about your day
Tell me everything that made you so angry
If I don't know what to say
Then I'll find some words to say

Just this one time
I won't put in my two cents
Just this one time
I'll just shut up and listen
Only if you
Promise that you'll do the same
When you've had a bad day, oh

Take it out on me
Take it out on me, yeah
'Cause I'm strong enough to not break
And I know that you'd do the same
Take it out on me

Would you take it out on me? (On me)
Take it out on me? (On me)
Would you take it out on me? (On me)
Take it out on mе?

One day, I'm gonna break
Oh, when that day comеs, you gotta accept it
If you don't know what to say
Then I'll find some words to say

Just this one time
I won't put in my two cents
Just this one time
I'll just shut up and listen
Only if you
Promise that you'll do the same
When you've had a bad day, oh

Take it out on me
Take it out on me, yeah
'Cause I'm strong enough to not break
And I know that you'd do the same
Take it out on me

Would you take it out on me? (On me)
Take it out on me? (On me)
Would you take it out on me? (On me)

Better Days

Oh, I know that there'll be better days
Oh, that sunshine 'bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days

Waking up in California
But these clouds, they won't go away
Every day is like another storm, yeah
I'm just trying not to go insane
Yeah, and the city's shining so bright
So many dark nights, so many dark days
But any time I feel the paranoia
I close my eyes and I pray

Oh, I know that there'll be better days
Oh, that sunshine 'bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days

Been waking up to a new year
Got the past million miles away
I been waking up with a new fear (New fear)
But I know it'll wash away
Whatever you do, don't worry 'bout me
I'm thinking 'bout you, don't worry 'bout us
'Cause in the morning everything can change, yeah
And time will tell you it does

Oh, I know that there'll be better days
Oh, that sunshine 'bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days

Better days (Better days)
Better days (Better days)
May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days

May we never ever shed another tear for today
'Cause oh, I know that there'll be better days

Wild Life

I'm staring at the sudden waterfalls
Tears that don't make sense to me at all
This life's what happens when you're making plans
Don't know what happens next or where I stand

Wanna live this wild life wild every day, woo
Wanna say the things people never say, woo
I'll take all the love and all the pain, yeah
Wanna live this wild life wild today

Oh, woo-ooh
Woo-ooh
Give me all your love and all your pain
Gon' live this wild life wild today

I'm staring at these faded signs ahead
But all these turns just fill me up with dread
But life's what happens when you're making plans, ooh
Dive or step right in, but please don't stand, oh

Wanna live this wild life wild every day, woo
Wanna say the things people never say, woo
I'll take all the love and all the pain, yeah
Wanna live this wild life wild today

Oh, woo-ooh
Woo-ooh
Give me all your love and all your pain
Gon' live this wild life wild today

Ships Tides

I just lost the feeling that I had today
Do all these good times come and go away?
Tell me something that I could say
Sometimes I just want to walk away

And I begin to understand
Ships can sink or rise

But I'm standing here tonight
And I'm knocking on your door
I'll be anything you like
If you can tell me what I'm here for
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on?
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on?

I just asked some questions that I've never had
Does who we are fade out like a photograph?
'Cause if I could, I'd do it all again
The good times, bad times, sink or swim

And, yes, I finally realized
Ships can sink or rise

But I'm standing here tonight
And I'm knocking on your door
I'll be anything you like
If you can tell me what I'm here for
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on?
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on?

[Interlude]
(Oh-oh)
(Oh-oh)

But I'm standing here tonight
And I'm knocking on your door
I'll be anything you like
If you can tell me what I'm here for
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on? (Oh-oh)
Do we go on, and on, and on, and on? (Oh-oh)

I just lost the feeling that I had today
Do all these good times come and go away?

Someday (Acoustic)

Somedays I'm treadin' the water and feel like it's getting deep
Some nights I drown in the weight of the things that I think I need
Sometimes I feel incomplete, yeah
But you always say to me, say to me

Oh, you say, "Someday when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold, yeah, won't we? Won't we?
And someday when we're older
I'll be yours and you'll be mine, be happy, happy"
Oh, you say, "Someday when we're older
We won't worry 'bout the things that we don't need" (We don't need)
We don't need
"And one day down the line
Before we both run out of time, we're gonna see
That someday we'll be all that we need"
Someday we'll be all that we need

I've been the best, been the worst, been a ghost in a crowded room (Oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)
I took a chance, took a turn, took a dive, and it led to you (Oh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)
So many times that I wish we could be anywhere but here
So many times that I wish I could see what you see so clear, so clear

Oh, you say, "Someday when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold, yeah, won't we?" (Won't we?)
Won't we? (Won't we?)
"Yeah and someday when we're older

Oh, you say, "Someday when we're older
We won't worry 'bout the things that we don't need" (We don't need)
We don't need

Before we both run out of time, we're gonna see
That someday we'll be all that we need"
Someday we'll be all that we need

Oh, you say someday when we're older
We'll be shinin' like we're gold, yeah, won't we? Won't we?
Yeah, someday down the line
Before we both run out of time, we're gonna see
That someday we'll be all that we need

Lose Somebody

It's a classic me mistake
Someone gives me love, and I throw it all away
Tell me, have I gone insane?
Talkin' to myself, but I don't know what to say

'Cause you let go
And now I'm holdin' on
I guess you don't know what you got
Until it's gone

Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody
Just to find out you really love someone
Oh, and I do, and I do, and I do, yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody
Just to find out you really love someone
Oh, yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody

So don't tell me it's too late
Hearts are made to bend
Baby, please don't let me break, yeah
I knew I should've stayed
'Cause now, you're movin' on
And I don't know what to say

'Cause you let go (Yeah, you let go)
And now I'm holdin' on (I'm holdin' on)
I guess you don't know what you got
Until it's gone

Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody
Just to find out you really love someone
Oh, and I do, and I do, and I do, yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody (Somebody)
Just to find out you really love someone
Oh, yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody

Hey yeah, hey yeah, hey yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody, yeah

Just to find out you really love someone
Oh, yeah
Sometimes, you gotta lose somebody
