Half A World Away Lyrics

by REM

This could be the saddest dusk
I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle
High alive

My mind is racing as it always will
My hand is tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away here
My head sworn

To go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone
Hold it along and hol' hol' hol'

Oh, lonely deep sit hollow
I'm half a world
Half the world away
My shoes are gone, my life spent

I had too much to drink
I didn't think
And I didn't think of you
I guess that's all I needed

To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall and hol' hol' hol'

Oh, this lonely world is wasted
Pathetic eyes high alive
Blind the tide that's turning the sea
This storm it came up strong

It shook the trees
And blew away our fear
I couldn't even hear

To go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
To go it alone
And hold it along, hol' hol hol'

To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards, and fall and hol' hol' hol'

Oh, this could be the saddest dusk
I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle
High alive

My mind is racing as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away, go
