She Just Wants To Be Lyrics

by REM

It's not that she walked away
Her world got smaller
All the usual places, the same destinations
Only something's changed

It's not that she wasn't rewarded
With pomegranate afternoons
And Mingus, Chet baker and chess

It's not the stampede and fortune of prim affectations
She's off on a right but she knows now
It's greater than the whole of the past
It's greater and now she knows

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be

It's not that the transparency of earlier incarnations
Now we're back on, we're enriched
And loaded with beautiful vulnerability
And now she knows
Now is greater and she knows that

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be

Now is greater, now is greater
And she knows that

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be

It's not like the Angels could truly look down
Stir up the trappings and light on the ground
Remind us of what, when, why or who?
The how's up to us, me and you
And now is greater than the whole of the past
Is greater and now she knows that
Now she knows
