Lyrics Edit

It's not a family trait,
it's nothing that I ate,
and it didn't come from skating with Holy Rollers,
It's an early warning sign,
it keeps my life in line,
but it's so hard to define,
Never mind...

(Chorus)
It's just a spirit thing,
it's just a holy nudge,
it's like a circuit judge in the brain.
It's just a spirit thing,
it's here to guard my heart,
it's just a little hard to explain.

It pushes when I quit,
it smells a counterfeit,
Sometimes it works a bit like a teleprompter...

When it's telepromting you,
I pray you'll let it through,
And I'll help you with the how,
But for now...

(Chorus)

It's just a spirit thing,
it's just a holy nudge,
it's like a circuit judge in the brain.
It's just a spirit thing,
it's here to guard my heart,
it's just a little hard to explain.



I took the pulpit

then backed down again

some things in heaven cannot be explained



I took the soapbox

then backed down again

some things in heaven cannot be explained


I took the airwaves

then backed down again

some things in heaven cannot be explained



It's just a spirit thing,
it's just a holy nudge,
it's like a circuit judge in the brain.
It's just a spirit thing,
it's here to guard my heart,
it's just a little hard to explain.


It's just a spirit thing,
it's just a holy nudge,
it's like a circuit judge in the brain.
It's just a spirit thing,
it's here to guard my heart,
it's just a little hard to explain.


It's just a spirit thing,
it's just a holy nudge,
it's like a circuit judge in the brain.
It's just a spirit thing,
it's here to guard my heart,
it's just a little hard to explain.
