Losing My Religion

Day 112 of 365 (Year Two)

 

Week 66, Assignment 3 for Take A Class With Dave and Dave.

 

Inspired by REM. I really lost faith with this band back in the early 90's, but when they come out and say "Yep, we lost our way..." I've got to respect that. Show us something inspired by REM.

 

I'm not the biggest REM fan. I think I might know two songs off the top of my head. Losing My Religion and It's The End Of The World As We Know It (or whatever the title of that song is). In doing research for this assignment, I have come to the conclusion that most of their songs don't make any sense when you read them. Listening might be different, but the lyrics don't make a lick of sense in most of the songs. Maybe it is just me, but I was scratching my head after reading the lyrics to almost every single song.

 

Anyway, I decided to go with what I knew, as limited as that may be.

 

Losing My Religion

 

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
