Like Humans Do

Album: Look into the Eyeball (2001)
  • For millions of years, in millions of homes
    A man loved a woman, a child it was born
    It learned how to hurt and it learned how to cry
    Like humans do

    I'm breathing in
    I'm breathing out
    So slip inside this funking house
    Dishes in the sink
    The tv's in repair
    Don't look at the floor
    Don't go up the stairs

    I'm achin'
    I'm shakin'
    I'm breakin'
    Like humans do

    I work and I sleep and I dance and I'm dead
    I'm eatin, I'm laughin and I'm lovin myself
    I never watch tv except when I'm stoned
    Like humans do

    I'm breathing in
    I'm breathing out
    So slip inside this funking house
    Dishes in the sink
    The tv's in repair
    Don't look at the floor
    Don't go up the stairs

    I'm achin'
    I'm shakin'
    I'm breakin'
    Like humans do

    I'm breathing in
    I'm breathing out
    So slip inside this funking house
    Wiggle while you work
    Anybody can
    The rain is pourin in on a woman and a man

    I'm achin'
    I'm shakin'
    I'm breakin'
    Like humans do
    I'm breathing in
    I'm breathing out Writer/s: DAVID BYRNE
