Southern Central Rain Lyrics

by REM

Did you never call? I waited for your call
As rivers of suggestion were driving me away
The trees were bent, the cities washed away
There sitting by the river is a girl without a dream

(chorus)
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

Eastern to Mountain, third party call, the lines are down
The wise man built his words upon the rocks
But I'm not bound to follow suit
The trees were bent, the conversation dimmed
Go build yourself another hope, this choice it isn't mine

I'm sorry, I'm sorry

Did you never call? I waited for your call
As rivers of suggestion were driving me away
The ocean sang, the conversation dimmed
Go build yourself another dream, this choice it isn't mine

(repeat chorus)
