lyrics

Suddenly it all felt clear to me
I can't believe I didn't used to like to dance
I've got ideas about how this should be
But I can't compete with the committee of your friends

So tell me what did they say about me?
What did they say about us?
Is it a big mistake
Or could it maybe just be love?

Didn't work out the last time
But I feel I'm changing
We're not better now
But I think we're more ourselves

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human, won't you

Do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do
Do do do do

Is it a coincidence that geniuses end up alone?
Their massive thoughts get sadder
As they grow and grow and grow

And push down paths to secret places
No one else has ever gone
Til they've been gone too long
And don't know right from wrong

So when their thoughts catch on
Naturally they're used wrong
Think about atomic bombs, well, they're not evil
Atomic power helps people but

Maybe there's things we're not ready to handle
That come from obsession and loss
And we should question the cost
Of looking up to Steve Jobs and Elon Musk

I don't trust when the answer comes
From the bottom of a deep dark hole
How can they know what people above want
With withered hearts of coal?

So I would rather be happy and smart
Than have a brain that glows in the dark and
I bet what I make will be better art, ah
That look in your face makes me want to start
Please help me

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human

Let's write, let's write a love song
Let's write, let's write a love song
To keep me human, won't you
Keep me human
