Departure Lyrics

by REM

Just arrived Singapore, San Sebastian, Spain, 26 hour trip
Salt Lake City, coming in spring
Over the salt flats, a hailstorm brought you back to me
Salt Lake City, coming in spring
Over the salt flats, a hailstorm brought you back to me

Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes
(Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh)

Departure, Godspeed, bless his heart, good Lord
What a fuck up, what a fighter
A freak fall, motorcycle, hang glider
Hung on the line like a poison spider
Win a eulogy from William Greider
(Ohh)
Car crash, Ptomaine, disposable lighter
(Ohh)
A bus plunge, avalanche, a vinegar cider
(Ohh)
Freak fall, motorcycle, hang glider
(Ohh)

Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes, back, back

Go, go, go, go, yeah
(Rolling on)
Go, go, go, go, yeah
(Dancing on)
Go, go, go, yeah

Well, everybody is young forever
There's so much to tell you, so little time
I've come a long way since the whatever
Shit, I still see that word, I think of you
There is so much that I can't do, yeah
(Ohh)
You will be young forever
(Ohh)
There's so much that I can't do
(Ohh)
There is so much that I can't do
(Ohh)

Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes, back, back
(Away)

Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes
(I'm carried away)
Here it comes, back, back
(Away)
