Half a World Away
R.E.M. Lyrics


This could be the saddest dusk I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle
High alive
My mind is racing
As it always will
My hand's tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away here
My head sworn
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Go it alone
Hold it along and hold, hold

Oh, lonely deep sit hollow
I'm half a world
Half the world away
My shoes are gone
My life spent
I had too much to drink
I didn't think
And I didn't think of you
I guess that's all I needed
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall and hold, hold

Oh, this lonely world is wasted
Pathetic eyes high alive
Blind to the tide that turns the sea
This storm it came up strong
It shook the trees
And blew away our fear
I couldn't even hear

To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul
To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards, and fall and hold hold

This could be the saddest dusk
I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle
High alive
My mind is racing
As it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away and go

This could be the saddest dusk I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away here
And I had sworn to go it alone, hold it along
And haul it along and hold it
Go it alone 'n hold it along
Hold

Oh, this lonely deeps and holy way
Half a world, half a world away
My shoes are gone, my life spent
I've had too much to drink
I didn't think, I didn't think of you
I guess that's all I needed
To go it alone and hold it along
And haul it along and hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall
Hold

Oh, this lonely world is wasted
Pathetic eyes, high-alive
Blind eye that turns to see
The storm it came up strong
It shook the trees and blew away our fear
I couldn't leave it here
To go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone hold it along
Hold

Go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along 'n hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall
Hold

Oh, this could be the saddest dusk I've ever seen
Turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away to go



Open Serrure

Cela pourrait être le crépuscule le plus triste
Jamais vu
Se changer en miracle
En alerte
Mon esprit court
Comme il le fera toujours
Ma main est fatiguée, mon cœur douloureux
Je suis au bout du monde
Ma tête a promis


D'y aller seul
Et l emporter
Le traîner
Le tenir
Y aller seul
L'emporter et tenir
Oh, le village reculé et solitaire
Je suis au bout du monde
Au bout du monde

Mes chaussures sont parties

Ma vie fichue
J'ai trop bu
Je n'ai pas pensé
Je n'ai pas pensé à toi
Je crois que c'est tout ce dont j'avais besoin

D'y aller seul
Et l emporter
Le traîner
Le tenir
Des oiseaux noirs, reculent, avancent, tombent et s'immobilisent

Oh, ce monde solitaire est gâché
Les yeux pathétiques, en alerte
Aveugle à la marée qui retourne la mer
Cette tempête est arrivée , forte
À secoué les arbres et balayé nos peurs
Je ne pouvais même pas entendre

D'y aller seul
Et l emporter
Le traîner
Le tenir
D'y aller seul
Et l emporter
Traîner
D'y aller seul
Et l emporter
Le traîner
Le tenir
Des oiseaux noirs, reculent, avancent, tombent et s'immobilisent

Oh ce pourrait être le crépuscule le plus triste
Jamais vu
Se changer en miracle
En alerte
Mon esprit court
Comme il le fera toujours
Ma main est fatiguée, mon cœur douloureux
I'm half a world away
Allons y

The harpsichord in this song adds something truly magical

Vendipatri

Mike Mills plays it. Apart from bass, keyboard and background vocals, all in this song. The guy is a monster.

Gary ODonnell

Michael Stipe is a genuis.

Steve

As is Mike Mills. The entire band was simply amazing.

Loved this gem since '91. Ouch, my back.

Bud Evans

43 now and my back is in rough shape but what a beautiful song from our youth

Jack McGinn

Absolute classic

Daria Wells

This feels like a companion song to "You Are The Everything" off of "Green".

Simple Jack

Was trying to recommend a REM song to a friend. Was going to use YATE but ended up using this.

Filipe Coelho

Best song ever. What a masterpiece!
