Belong
R.E.M. Lyrics


Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She got up from the kitchen table
Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, sea

Ooh
Ooh
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea
She began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of such freedom
Stood and whispered to her child, "belong"
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm, "belong"

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
She stood and whispered to her child, "belong"
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm, "belong"

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Those barricades can only hold for so long
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She took the child held tight
Opened the window
A breath, this song, how long
And knew, knew, "belong"
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She got up from the kitchen table
Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, sea

Those creatures jumped the barricades
and have headed for the sea
She began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of such freedom
Stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm; belong

Stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm; belong

These barricades can only hold for so long
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She took the child held tight
Opened the window
A breath, this song, how long
and knew, knew; belong

Easter 1991, I was 11 years old, my Granddad was a professor at the Smithsonian in Washington DC and my Gran took me out there for a holiday. I'm English, I'd never been further than France. We went to some picturesque town in Maryland - I think it must've been Annapolis - and I heard this music that just drew me in and I wandered into the record shop where it was coming from. The posters for Out of Time were on the walls and Belong was playing. So this was the first R.E.M. song I ever heard, in America on this awesome holiday with my wonderful grandparents. Just thought I'd share that with you.

What an impression on you!

Oliver Ann Hinson

Lovely story. Thanks for sharing. I remember with fondness some events that happened around that time.

There's something about REM. You revisit an old track, an old album, and it sounds so fresh and new and there's something in there you can't say you noticed before. Never tire of them.

Francesco Perra

That's perfectly true. There's some sort of eternal freshness in their music that few bands can boast.

@VinylViper I'd say it depends on the crowd. Hope it went well.

I agree man!
