Kohoutek Lyrics

by REM

Who will stand alone?

She carried ribbons, she wore them out
Courage built a bridge, jealous tore it down
At least it's something you've left behind
Like Kohoutek you were gone

We sat in the garden
We stood on the porch
We fooled around ourselves
We never talked

She wore bangles, she wore bells
On her toes and she jumped like a fish
Like a flyin' fish you were gone
Like Kohoutek I can't forget that

Fever built a bridge
Reason tore it down
If I'm wrong to follow
Who will stand alone?

Maybe you're not the problem
Scissors, paper, stone
If you stand and holler
Foolish proves the talk

She carried ribbons, she wore them out
Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down
At least it's something you've left behind
Like Kohoutek you were gone

Michael built a bridge
Michael tore it down
If I stand and holler
Will I stand alone?
