The Human Touch Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Some say the world is spinning faster
Some say it isn't fast enough
Some people say they've got the answer
And some are scared to say they can't keep up

I read the paper but it still isn't clear
The bombs are falling but I'm still here
I know the figures and I know all of the facts
But all I can do is keep trying

To look for the human touch
To look for the human touch

Life is hard when you've got nothing
Life can be hard when you've got too much
Sometimes I wonder what's the difference
It's only better with someone to touch

I got the telephone stuck to my ear
I keep yelling but you don't hear
In all the universe I'm just a speck of dust
But all I can do is keep trying

To give you the human touch
To give you the human touch

You know we're nothing in the scheme of things
Just microchips in big machines
And the world is spinning round and round
But I know that we can slow it down

And I know that I can make you see
I'm on the side of you and me
And all I want to do, listen to me
(All I want to do, all I want to do)

Is give you
(Give you)
Give you
(Give you)
Give you
Give you the human touch

Give you the human touch
To give you the human touch
To give you the human touch
