ONCE THERE WAS A CARPENTER WHO HAD A CROSS TO BEAR 
HE ASKED US TO FORGIVE ALL THOSE WHO PUT HIM THERE
SOME PEOPLE HEARD HIS MESSAGE SOME PEOPLE SAW HIM FALL
FOR HE WAS ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

I CAN TELL YOU OF A WOMAN WHO WAS BORN TO GO TO WAR
TO NURSE THE FALLEN SOLDIERS SO FAR FROM FRIENDLY SHORES
SOME SAY SHE HAD A DUTY SOME SAY SHE HAD A CALL
FOR SHE WAS ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

CHORUS:

THEY WERE ONLY HUMAN AND THEY LIVE INSIDE US ALL
FOR WE ARE ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

THERE WAS A POLITICIAN A STATESMAN AND SO BRAVE
HE USED A CONSTITUTION TO FREE THE SOUTHERN SLAVES
SOME PEOPLE HEARD HIS MESSAGE SOME PEOPLE SAW HIM FALL
FOR HE WAS ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

I CAN TELL YOU OF A WRITER OF SONGS AND POETRY
WHO ASKED US TO IMAGINE HOW PEACEFUL LIFE COULD BE
BUT ON A BUSY STREET IN NEW YORK THE DEVIL PAID A CALL
FOR HE WAS ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

THERE WAS A YOUNG FIRE-FIGHTER WHO KISSED HIS WIFE GOODBYE
HE LEFT TO FACE A TOWER THAT WAS BURNING IN THE SKY
HE WALKED INTO THE BUILDING THAT WAS JUST ABOUT TO FALL
FOR HE WAS ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL

CHORUS:

THEY WERE ONLY HUMAN AND THEY LIVE INSIDE US ALL
FOR WE ARE ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL
