A Girl Like You – REM

I get so disturbed…I’m all alone
I feel so funny t-t-t-talking on the phone

I fall apart when I hear you speak
Believe me girl, I just feel weak

I wonder how I got involved with a girl like…
You want to tell me that I’m not you’re kind of guy
You break the news and I break down and cry…I cry

You’re having fun…well that’s all right
I’m too weak to put up a fight
I wish you’d just tell what was wrong
instead of leading my on

I get so disturbed when I’m all alone
I feel so funny t-t-t-talking on the phone
I fall apart when I hear your speak
Believe me girl…I just feel weak
I wish you’d just tell me what was wrong
Instead of leading me on

I try to call
(call on the phone)
I try to call
(but nobody’s home)
I wonder why
(you lead my along)

I wonder how I got involved with a girl like you

9-9 – REM

Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced.
Now what does that mean?
Is there a just contradiction?
Nothing much.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord, hesitate.

Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down his back
all nine yards down her back

Give me a couple,
Don’t give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear

Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down his back
all nine yards down her back

Give me a couple,
Don’t give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear

What is in my mind?
What is in my mind?

Steady repetition is a compulsion mutually reenforced.
Now what does that mean?
Is there a just contradiction?
Nothing much.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, oh come on, hesitate, hesitate.

Got to punch
Right on target
Twisting tongues
Gotta stripe down her back
all nine yards down his back

Give me a couple,
Don’t give me a couple of pointers,
Turn to lies and conversation fear

Conversation fear. Conversation fear. Conversation fear

1,000,000 – REM

Secluded in a marker stone
Not only deadlier but smarter too, smarter too
All along the tomb, secret in the ruin
Secluded in a marker stone
Not only deadlier but smarter too, smarter too

I could live a million, I could live a million, I could live a million,
I could live a million years.

(repeat 1st verse and chorus)

All along, all along, all along the tomb
Secret in, secret in, secret in the ruin
Secluded in a marker stone
Not only deadlier but smarter too smarter too

You – REM

Let the sun beat through the clouds,
Let me kiss you on the mouth.
All my childhood toys with chew marks in your smile.
Let me hold your syrup close to mine.
Let me watch you, Hollywood and Vine.
And I want you like the movies, touch me now.
I love you crazy, just keep on.
I love you madly, just keep watch.
You wipe my lips,
You turn me on.
My attentions are turned to you.

Did I dream you were a tourist
in the Arizona sun?
I can see you there with luna moths
and watermelon gum.
I woke up in the sleeping bag,
With nowhere else to run.
You’re standing in the bathroom
telling me its all in fun.
I love you crazy, just keep on.
I love you madly, just keep watch.
You wipe my lips,
You turn me on.
My attentions are turned to you.

I can whisper in your ear.
I can write a calendar year
I can wing around your Saturn smile, shout at the moon
I walked the tension wire line.
And I learned to disrespect the signs.
And I want you like a Pisces rising, even though
I love you crazy, just keep on.
I love you madly, just keep watch.
You wipe my lips,
You turn me on.
My attentions are turned to you

Pale Blue Eyes – REM

Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel just about everything
Lately I’m just feeling bad
Lately I’m just feeling bad

Linger on your pale blue eyes

I thought of you as my mountain top
I thought of you as my peak
I thought of you as just about everything
I had but couldn’t keep
I had but couldn’t keep

Narrator – REM

When I was watching TV back in ’73
A skinny old man sure appealed to me
His name by now, I’m sure you know
The man who played a starring role in Jacques Cousteau

And ever since then I’ve written the dude
Dreaming of swimming around the
coral reef
I’d even bought my camera and my scuba gear
If only Jacques had called to stop a career

I wanna be a narrator
For the Jacques Cousteau show

Swimming under water with my microphone
I’d record noises in the aqua-zone
Chasing down the killer whale that’s eating our crew
Just to bring the story (facts) back to you

I wanna be a narrator
For the Jacques Cousteau show

I’ve written the networks, sent my picture too
Done everything I could possibly do
I’ve given up trying to get through to him
Maybe he knows I don’t know how to swim

I wanna be a narrator
For the Jacques Cousteau show

Half A World Away – REM

This could be the saddest dusk
I’ve ever seen
Turn to a miracle
high alive
My mind is racing
As it always will
My hand is tired my heart aches
I’m half a world away here
my head sworn
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Go it alone
Hold it along and hold, hold.

This lonely deep sit hollow
I’m half a world
Half the world away
My shoes are gone
My life spent
I had too much to drink
I didn’t think
and I I didn’t think of you
I guess that’s all I needed
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Blackbirds backwards forwards and fall and hold hold.

Oh this lonely world is wasted
Pathetic eyes high alive
blind to the tide that turns the sea
This storm it came up strong
it shook the trees
And blew away our fear
I couldn’t even hear

To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Blackbirds backwards forwards and fall and hold hold.

This could be the saddest dusk
I’ve ever seen
Turn to a miracle
high alive
My mind is racing
As it always will
My hands tired my heart aches
I’m half a world away and go.

Hairshirt – REM

I am not the type of dog
That could keep you waiting
For no good reason
Run a carbon-black test on my jaw
And you will find it’s all been said before

I can swing my megaphone and long arm the rest
It’s easier and better
To just beat it from the chest
Of desire

I could walk into this room
And the waves of conversation are enough
To knock you down in the undertow
So alone so alone in my life
Feed me banks of light
And hang your hairshirt on the lowest rung
It’s a beautiful life
And I can hang my hairshirt
Away up high in the attic of the wrong dog’s life chest
Or bury it at sea
All my life I’ve searched for this

Here I am here I am in your life
It’s a beautiful life
My life
It’s a beautiful life
Your life

REM – E-Bow The Letter

Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise

The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m.
This letter
Fields of poppies, little pearls
All the boys and all the girls sweet-toothed
Each and every one a little scary
I said your name

I wore it like a badge of teenage film stars
Hash bars, cherry mash and tinfoil tiaras
Dreaming of Maria Callas
Whoever she is
This fame thing, I don’t get it
I wrap my hand in plastic to try to look through it
Maybelline eyes and girl-as-boy moves
I can take you far
This star thing, I don’t get it

I’ll take you over, there
I’ll take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I’ll take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I’ll take you over

Will you live to 83?
Will you ever welcome me?
Will you show me something that nobody else has seen?
Smoke it, drink
Here comes the flood
Anything to thin the blood
These corrosives do their magic slowly and sweet
Phone, eat it, drink
Just another chink
Cuts and dents, they catch the light
Aluminum, the weakest link

I don’t want to disappoint you
I’m not here to anoint you
I would lick your feet
But is that the sickest move?
I wear my own crown and sadness and sorrow
And who’d have thought tomorrow could be so strange?
My loss, and here we go again

I’ll take you over, there
I’ll take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I’ll take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I’ll take you over

Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise

I can’t look it in the eyes
Seconal, spanish fly, absinthe, kerosene
Cherry-flavored neck and collar
I can smell the sorrow on your breath
The sweat, the victory and sorrow
The smell of fear, I got it

I’ll take you over, there
I’ll take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I’ll take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I’ll take you over

Pulls us near
Tastes like fear..

Nearer, nearer
over, over, over, over
Yeah, look over
I’ll take you there, oh, yeah
I’ll take you there
Oh, over
I’ll take you there
Over, let me
I’ll take you there..
There, there, baby, yeahCheck out more Lyrics from REM.

Baby Baby – REM

Mmmm…You’re so pretty
Not to talk to you would be a crime
Let me put my arms around you
Just wanna use up a little of your time

And I’m going…
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Won’t you be my girl?

You’re eyes, they’re so pretty
The clothes you wear, so fine
Won’t you come around to my place
Just wanna use up a little of your time

And I’m going…
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Won’t you be my girl?

Come on, come on, come on

[SOLO]

Baby baby baby
Won’t you be my girl?

(repeat above six times)
