R.E.M. – Losing My Religion


I set it up
Consider this
And I don’t know if I can do it
And you, you are not me
I thought that I heard you sing
That’s me in the corner

Losing my religion
What if all these fantasies
I thought that I heard you laughing
Trying to keep up with you
I thought that I heard you sing

That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
It’s bigger
The distance in your eyes
To my knees failed
The lengths that I will go to
I thought that I heard you laughing

Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
Now I’ve said too much
Come flailing around
I thought that I heard you laughing
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Consider this
I thought that I heard you sing

Dream

I think I thought I saw you try

That’s me in the corner
Oh no I’ve said too much
Oh no, I’ve said too much
Trying to keep up with you
The slip that brought me
But that was just a dream, try, cry, why, try
Life is bigger
That’s me in the spotlight
I haven’t said enough
Losing my religion
Oh no I’ve said too much
Oh no, I’ve said too much
That was just a dream

And I don’t know if I can do it
But that was just a dream

I haven’t said enough
The hint of the century
I think I thought I saw you try
Every whisper
That’s me in the spotlight

I think I thought I saw you try
Of every waking hour
I set it up
