Tuneful Tuesday March 12 – Are We Human?

fantasy woman

Welcome to Tuneful Tuesday – Poetry inspired by some of my favorite songs. Up tonight, “Human” by the killers.

Life of a Human

She lived her life in freedom
her heart was good and kind
til finally she surrendered
unto the ties that bind

Feeling she was trapped
fearful of the open door
take a breath, take a step
you’ve got to cut the cord

She held on to grace and virtue
and let come whatever would
lived a life of soul and romance
and always did the best she could

But the question was yet unanswered
are we human or are we dancers?
The sun was warm but her thoughts were cold
on bended knee praying for answers
am I human or just a dancer?

For as humans we find the light
shining in the darkest night
But as puppets on a string
we’re just dancing to the songs they sing
even dancing with a lover
we’re still alone when the song is over

Let us be human, and not just dancers

Human

The Killers

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was broad but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes
Clear your heart

Cut the cord

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I’m on my knees
Looking for the answer
Are we human?
Or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could
And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye
Wish me well

You got to let me go

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I’m on my knees
Looking for the answer
Are we human?
Or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight?
There is no message we’re receiving
Let me know is your heart still beating?

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I’m on my knees
Looking for the answer

You got to let me know

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I’m on my knees
Looking for the answer
Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
