Sweetness Follows Lyrics

by REM

Readying to bury your father and your mother
What did you think when you lost another?
I used to wonder, why did you bother?
Distanced from one, blind to the other

Listen here, my sister and my brother
What would you care if you lost the other?
I always wonder, why did we bother?
Distanced from one, deaf to the other

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows

It's these little things, they can pull you under
Live your life filled with joy and wonder
I always knew this altogether thunder
Was lost in our little lives

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows
Oh, oh, but sweetness follows

It's these little things, they can pull you under
Live your life filled with joy and thunder
Yeah, yeah, we were altogether
Lost in our little lives

Oh, oh, ah
Oh, oh, but sweetness follows
Oh, oh, oh, but sweetness follows
