Belong Lyrics

by REM

Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She got up from the kitchen table
Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, sea

Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, she began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of this freedom
Stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered with calm, calm, belong

She stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered with calm, calm, belong

Those barricades can only hold for so long
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She took the child held tight opened the window
A breath, this song, how long
And knew, knew, belong
