The Lyrics

This song was inspired by my friend who looked at the wrong side of her hand and freaked out because she couldn't find her thumb. (TRUE STORY)
Don't know whatever happened to me
Feeling so hopeless
I cannot pick things up
I don't know what your expecting of me
Cause I lost my poor thumb
just the other day
(Only got four fingers, I've only got four fingers)
You know I can't even get
a grip on my pencil
(It would help to have five, it would really help to have five)

I just lost my thumb
I can't feel it there
It just went away
Only yesterday
I can't make a fist
and can't tie my shoe
Lost a part of me
now what can I do

Can't you see what my thumb meant to me
I was holding too tightly
and then it just fell off
And now I need to get surgery
I'm falling apart
right in front of you
(What will come off next, what's gonna come off next)
Every step that I take
I'm afraid that my legs will go too
(Wonder about my toes, startin to wonder about my toes)
And every second I wait
is more than I can take

I just lost my thumb
I can't feel it there
It just went away
Only yesterday
I can't make a fist
and can't tie my shoe
Lost a part of me
now what can I do

And I know
I may end up losing more
And I know
You were just like me
Until I started falling apart

I just lost my thumb
I can't feel it there
It just went away
Only yesterday
I can't make a fist
and can't tie my shoe
Lost a part of me
now what can I do

I just lost my thumb
I can't feel it there
Don't know, maybe I have leprosy
It just went away
Only yesterday
Don't know how much will be left of me
