Houston Lyrics

by REM

If the storm doesn't kill me the government will
I've gotta get that out of my head
Its a new day today and the coffee is strong
Ive finally got some rest

So a mans put to task and challenges
I was taught to hold my head high
Collect what is mine
Make the best of what today has

Houston is filled with promise
Laredo is a beautiful place
And Galveston sings like that song that I loved
Its meaning has not been erased

And so there are claims forgiven
And so there are things that are gone

Houston is filled with promise
Laredo is a beautiful place
And Galveston sings like that song that I loved
Its meaning has not been erased

And some things, they fall to the wayside
Their memory is yet to be still
Belief has not filled me
And so I am put to the test
