"You're Only Human (Second Wind)" is a song written in 1985 and performed by Billy Joel for the express purpose of teenage suicide prevention.

Joel, who had once attempted suicide himself, was asked if he could write a song about suicide in the hopes of promoting its prevention in teenagers. He agreed, but was concerned about his original draft which took a downbeat tone he thought would in fact encourage kids to end it all. In response, Joel created a new song with a bouncy joyous beat and lyrics that stress personal forgiveness and optimism about life.

Joel donated all the royalties from the song to the National Committee for Youth Suicide Prevention.
