    We're Only Human

Moments of weakness + physical attraction causes pain 
A chance meeting not planned look out for the rain 
It shouldn't be done but so many people do
I was once a coward, but that's long past, I am somewhat new 

This age old problem, what humans know & see 
not content with one love, don't want 2 set free
Another arises one should do the right thing
But no cowards we are, so heartache it brings

Sneaking around, making that excuse for a moment of pleasure
Connection is worse, just sex is much better
Cos to meet on a level,to connect with ones mind 
Arises to complications, something one will find

Cheating is cheating, well yes all the same
But different reasons one finds to get into this game 
Neglecting from him, makes her lonely & insecure
So attention from another, is so hard to ignore

He wants to empty his loins, it is said mans aim is spreading his seed
So different to women, another they're less inclined to need
So it's more a mans sin, hmmmm! is it natures way?
Or is that an excuse for a bit of play

Well as I said once I was a coward, but that now ain't me 
I'm glad for who I've become and how I'll always be
