I'm Only Human

Songfacts®:

  • This is Ross' most personal and favorite song from Trilla. He told MTV News of this track: "I talked about growing up and overlooking a lot of things. I was reckless, like not having a relationship with my dad when he died of cancer. Now that I'm older, I look at the mistakes I made. Talking about our house being burnt down, having to live in motels. Not being able to bounce back. [I was] just absorbing that and chanelling that and [began] dreaming big."
