Stand Lyrics

by REM

Stand in the place where you live, now face north
Think about direction wonder why you haven't
Now stand in the place where you work, now face west
Think about the place where you live wonder why you haven't before

If you are confused check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around, so

Stand in the place where you live, now face north
Think about direction wonder why you haven't
Now stand in the place where you work, now face west
Think about the place where you live wonder why you haven't before

Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason, season is calling

Stand in the place where you live, now face north
Think about direction wonder why you haven't
Now stand in the place where you work, now face west
Think about the place where you live wonder why you haven't before

If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason, the reason is calling
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So stand
(Stand)
Now face North
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven't

Now stand
(Stand)
Now face West
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't

Stand in the place where you live, now face north
Think about direction wonder why you haven't
Now stand in the place where you work, now face west
Think about the place where you live wonder why you haven't before

Stand in the place where you are
(Now face North)
Stand in the place where you are
(Now face West)
(Your feet are going to be on the ground)
Stand in the place where you are
(Now face North)
(Your head is there to move you around, so stand)
Stand in the place where you are
(Now face West)
