Lyrically – Human Nature

I haven’t posted any lyrics in a while, maybe I’m a little weary about posting lyrics after the lyrics binge of May. Music has always been one of the major ingredients that makes up my lifeforce, not writing about music has actually been hurting me. 

Today’s song was my favourite song for a long time, it’s still one of my top five songs and is my favourite song for this month. I remember sitting on the window and listening to the song with tears staining my cheeks, I was about five years old. Like Easy by Lionel Richie and It’s my life by Dr Alban, Human Nature seemed to express my angst, my desire to live life on my terms even as a five year old (when I was five, I was very highly strung). Besides the lyrics, I love the production and the lustrous beauty that is MJ’s voice- it was and is his voice that makes me cry when I listen to this song, yes I still cry.

Human Nature
[1st Verse]
Looking Out
Across The Night-Time
The City Winks A Sleepless Eye
Hear Her Voice
Shake My Window
Sweet Seducing Sighs

[2nd Verse]
Get Me Out
Into The Night-Time
Four Walls Won’t Hold Me Tonight
If This Town
Is Just An Apple
Then Let Me Take A Bite

[Chorus]
If They Say –
Why, Why, Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
If They Say – Why, Why,
Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way

[3rd Verse]
Reaching Out
To Touch A Stranger
Electric Eyes Are Ev’rywhere
See That Girl
She Knows I’m Watching
She Likes The Way I Stare

[Chorus]
If They Say –
Why, Why, Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
If They Say – Why, Why,
Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
I Like Livin’ This Way
I Like Lovin’ This Way

[4th Verse]
Looking Out
Across The Morning
The City’s Heart Begins To Beat
Reaching Out
I Touch Her Shoulder
I’m Dreaming Of The Street

[Chorus]
If They Say –
Why, Why, Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
If They Say – Why, Why,
Tell ‘Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
I Like Livin’ This Way
[Repeat Chorus – Ad-Lib/Fade-Out]
