lyrics

Oh, I was truly made of tin
To let no human beings in
It was only ever abstract things that pulled my strings
They told me if I had a heart
I could tell real life and love apart
But I’ve always been a bit too smart to play that part

CHORUS:
So tonight, I will return to the Land of Oz
To remind myself of who I was

Oh, I was truly made of straw
Love came through the barn and out the door
There was nothing that I worshipped more than Freedom’s Law
They told me if I had a brain
I could see the light and feel the rain
But the roses always smell the same by any other name

CHORUS

Oh, I was truly made of fear
To hold no-one close and no-one dear
And I learned with every passing year to hide those tears
They say if I had courage now
I could find the strength to tell you how
But I’ve always been a bit too proud to love out loud

CHORUS

Oh, if I truly had a home
I could tap my heels and fly along
I suppose I really shouldn’t moan, cos...
God bless the child that’s got his own
That’s got his own

And I got my own
I got my own
I got my own
