Make It All Okay Lyrics

by REM

You threw away the ballast and you rowed your boat ashore
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
You made your ultimatum too big to ignore
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

So you worked out your excuses
Turned away and shut the door
The world's too vast for us now
And you wanted to explore

It's a long, long long road
And I don't know which way to go
If you offered me your hand again
I'd have to walk away

When I saw you at the street fair, you called out my name
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
You said we could start over, try and make it all okay
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

So our past has been rewritten
And you threw away the pen
You'd said that I was useless
But now you'll take me in again

Well Jesus loves me fine
And your words fall flat this time
Was it my imagination, or did I hear you say
We don't have a prayer between us

Didn't you believe that I have finally turned away?
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
Anything to hold onto to help me through my day
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

Jesus loves me fine
But his words fall flat this time
It's a long, long long road
And I don't know which way to go

If you offered me your world
Did you think I'd really stay?
If you offered me the heavens
I would have to turn away

Was it my imagination, or did I hear you say
We don't have a prayer between us
Didn't you, now? Didn't you, now?
Didn't you?
