‘Humbug’ Lyrics

If I only had the brain
I'd ask the wise-man to explain 
Why when I thought to turn around
I left my insides on the ground 

If I only had the heart
I'd ask the wise-man to impart 
Why when love's rain and thunder struck
It left me standing, staring, stuck

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl clicking my heels
Trying to remember how home feels x 3

If I only had what’s on your feet
I’d ask the wise-man to unseat
The powers that have been
And turn a whiter shade of green

If I only had the nerve
I'd ask the wise-man to observe
Me fighting demons I can beat
And lay my skin beneath his feet

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl clicking my heels
Trying to remember how home feels x 2

All I want’s somewhere to hang my coat
I want you to hold me as I hang my head
And I just wanna be inside your arms
But I’m trapped in the grips
Of something else instead
Staring at the desert I fall to the floor
As I see home’s not home anymore

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl kicking my heels

Trying to remember how home x 3
feels
