LyricsEdit

Now my wisdom teeth are through I feel a little bit older
Jealousy and insecurity won't make the heart grow fonder
I know I shouldn't regret the things that I've said and done to you
But if that's the way that it's meant to be then there's not much I can do
Well I just wish I'd reached out a little bit more
To make my regrets a little less sore

We became like running bones and now we've turned to dust
Destroyed by all the rain that turns the shiny things to rust
Well I just wish you'd reached out a little bit more
Instead of making me feel like this is all my fault

And it takes all my strength not to wind you up
About it, about it
And I know you try hard not to think about it

But what else could we do?
We've both got play for fools

For months I let you see the real me hiding underneath
But now I've kept it buried with my brand new set of teeth
Well I just hope in the future we can straighten things out
Next time we meet I won't even open my mouth

Looking back I realize it was always gonna end
But I got your back and I'm so glad that we can still be friends
Even though I'll miss your voice and the way you sing
When it comes to you and me I don't regret a thing

And it takes all my strength not to wind you up
About it, about it
And I know you try hard not to think about me

But now we've both moved on
And we're finally getting along
And it takes all my strength not to wind you up
And it takes all my strength not to wind you up
And it takes all my strength not to wind you up

TriviaEdit

  • Because of the fact that "Human Behaviour" was removed along with Emma's entire Bandcamp account, the studio version of the song had been considered to be lost. As of May 5, 2018, all of the studio tracks from "Human Behaviour" have been re-uploaded
  • "Wisdom Teeth" was originally going to be remade and put on Emma's fourth EP, Magnetised, however when Emma was asked in a Q&A if she'd ever bring the song back in future releases, she said: "I don't think so, I think that's an old song that I just have to leave behind, it's just not a good song. Fun fact though, it was going to be on the EP. It was between that and "Instead", and I was going to record "Wisdom Teeth" and I sent it to my producer and everything saying "This is what I want as track one" but ultimately everyone decided that "Instead" would've been a better fit. I don't think I'm ever going to bring back "Wisdom Teeth" because my music style is probably going to change."
