                             Human - Orla Gartland
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Emilyeatstoast

Tuning: Standard. No capo.

Loving this tune by Gartl. The general shape is F - C - G - Am for those who just 
want to strum it.
Watch this video of the song for timing/general enjoyment:

Verse 2: Same deal.
I'm the face in the clock nothing comes as a shock
Inner workings are hidden away
Keep on serving my time til the hour arrives

Pre-Chorus: Same as above.
I don't need DNA 
For a radioactive display
Am I lost in the day? 

CHORUS: Same as above
A skeleton can't bruise
No blood for me to lose
Where is the life I knew
Wish that I could be human

Bridge: Strumming these chords, all downward.

F                      G
Starting to feel like a robot
F (bar)          C     G
Living without an identity
F                      G
I wonder if ill have permission
F                  C        G
I wonder if I am allowed to be


CHORUS: Back to fingerpicking.

A skeleton can't bruise

No blood for me to lose
Where is the life I knew
Wish that I could be human (you always remind me)

CHORUS repeat: Strumming

F          C           G  Am
A skeleton can't bruise
F          C          G Am
No blood for me to lose
F          C            G Am
Where is the life I knew
F          C         G Am
Wish that I could be human


Wish that I could be human

I don't want to be a dick but I kinda feels like in the beginning there are too many notes to pick? I can't get the rhythm right, I always end up with like 2 notes to much or something, I can't hear her picking all those notes as well.. Could just be me though, great tab! :)
