  • Lyrics
  • "Hurts 2B Human" is a strumming ballad which finds Pink linking up with Khalid to sing about the pains of everyday life.

    God, it hurts to be human
    Without you, I'd be losin'

    Pink and Khalid take on two different roles during this track. Pink's character is plagued by negative thoughts. She is feeling fed up with life but shields herself from the pain with the help of a loved one.

    Sometimes, I get so tired of getting tied up in my thoughts
    You're the only one that ever makes it stop

    Khalid is more optimistic and offers some words of encouragement. He assures Pink that she can count on him and he "has her back."
  • Pink and Khalid wrote the song along with:

    New York songwriter Teddy Geiger. He is best known for his collaborations with Shawn Mendes, including the 2017 BMI Song of the Year "Stitches."

    Alexander Izquierdo from the Miami production and songwriting team Monsters & Strangerz. His other credits include Fifth Harmony's "Work from Home."

    Miami-born, Paris-based electro artist Anna-Catherine Hartley, who is known professionally as Uffie. She is best known for her 2010 collaboration with Pharrell Williams "ADD SUV."
  • The song was helmed by pop producer Jorgen Odegard, who also collaborated with Imagine Dragons on their hit single "Bad Liar."
