You're Only Human (Second Wind) by Billy Joel

You're having a hard time and

Lately you don't feel so good

You're getting a bad reputation in your neighborhood

It's alright

It's alright

Sometimes that's what it takes

You're only human

You're allowed to make your share of mistakes

You better believe there will be times in your life

When you'll be feeling like a stumbling fool

So take it from me you'll learn

More from your accidents

Than anything that you could ever learn at school


Don't forget your second wind

Sooner of later you'll get your second wind


It's not always easy to be living

In this world of pain

You're gonna be crashing into

Stone walls again and again

It's alright

It's alright

Though you feel your heart break

You're only human

You're gonna have to deal with heartache

Lyrics provided by

Just like a boxer in a title fight

You got to walk in that ring all alone

You're not the only one who's made mistakes

But they're the only thing that you

Can truly call your own


Don't forget your second wind

Wait in that corner until that breeze blows in


You've been keeping to yourself these days

Cause you're thinking everything's gone wrong

Sometimes you just want to lay down and die

That emotion can be so strong

But hold on

Till that old second wind comes along


You probably don't want to hear

Advice from someone else

But I wouldn't be telling you if I

Hadn't been there myself

It's alright

It's alright

Sometimes that's all it takes

We're only human

We're supposed to make mistakes

But I survived all those long lonely days

When it seemed I did not have a friend

Cause all I needed was a little faith

So I could catch my breath and face the world again


Don't forget your second wind

Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in

Don't forget your second wind

Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in
