REM is calling it a day


Mijn favoriete band stopt met liedjes maken. Daarom, een van mijn favorieten van REM.
Walk unafraid
as the sun comes up,
as the moon goes down
these heavy notions creep around
it makes me think
long ago I was brought into
this life a little lamb
a little lamb
courageous, stumbling
fearless was my middle name.
but somewhere there I
lost my way
everyone walks the same
Expecting me to step
the narrow path they’ve laid
they claim to
walk unafraid
I’ll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high.
say “keep within the boundaries if you wantto play”.
say “contradiction only makes it harder”.
how can I be
what I want to be?
when all I want to do is strip away
these stilled constraints
and crush this charade
shred this sad masquerade
I don’t need no persuading
I’ll trip, fall, pick myself up and
walk unafraid
I’ll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high.
if I have a bag of rocks to carry as I go
I just want to hold my head up high
I din’t care what I have to step over
I’m prepared to look you in the eye
look me in the eye
and if you see familiarity
then celebrate the contradiction
help me when I fall to
walk unafraidI’ll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high.
walk unafraid
I’ll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high.
