Where the heck is Athens, GA?


Since Sunday I've been greedily watching REM's videos on youtube whenever I open a new browser. Omgosh, these guys have some great songs/videos. Guess that I'm missing some of my own words and grabbing some lyrics for thought even though I'm fully aware that I shouldn't be using song lyrics like advice...


Life is bigger


It's bigger than you

And you are not me

The lengths that I will go to

The distance in your eyes

Oh no I've said too much

I set it up



That's me in the corner

That's me in the spotlight

Losing my religion

Trying to keep up with you

And I don't know if I can do it

Oh no I've said too much

I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing

I thought that I heard you sing

I think I thought I saw you try



Every whisper

Of every waking hour I'm

Choosing my confessions

Trying to keep an eye on you

Like a hurt lost and blinded fool

Oh no I've said too much

I set it up



Consider this

The hint of the century

Consider this

The slip that brought me

To my knees failed

What if all these fantasies

Come flailing around

Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing

I thought that I heard you sing

I think I thought I saw you try



But that was just a dream

That was just a dream
