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

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.

Beautifully put , I'm going to an open mic sometime soon and this is one of my choices in spoken word , it's gonna go one of two ways , an absolute crowd winner which heavily depends on how I deliver it or half way through im completely bombing and resort to comedy 🤣🤣

Mr. chilll

I agree man!

Otto the Smartass

Easily one of the best REM songs. Those vocal melodies are out of this world

allan gobey

vocally, i don't think REM ever sounded more beautiful

I have been wanting to hear this song for a long time. I remember I had the cassette for "Out of Time" growing up in the 90s. I just remembered how heartfelt the song was and especially the chorus. So simple but so full of meaning.
