Texarkana
R.E.M. Lyrics


Twenty-thousand miles to an oasis
Twenty-thousand years will I burn
Twenty-thousand chances I've wasted
Waiting for the moment to turn

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

Walking through the woods, I have faced it
Looking for something to learn
Forty-thousand thoughts have been wasted
Never in my time to return

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

All my life
Waiting to find

Forty-thousand stars in the evening
Look at them fall from the sky
Forty-thousand reasons for living
Forty-thousand tears in your eyes

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall

My favorite R.E.M. song, It turns out that sometimes the best music is among the unadvertised (on radio) songs on an album that you stumble across, If this makes any sense.

Abel Montalvo

Deep cuts

Monkeys Uncle

HOLY FUCK IS THIS OVER COMPRESSED. It sounds like absolute shit! PHENOMENAL song, but the SQ is SHIT.

c amusten

My favorite too since I been 19

James Tepera

I recall this Tune actually got some airplay back in the day. I also believed they performed it on Saturday night live to promote the Out of time record years ago

Marc Bolinger Deep cuts are almost always better than what they send to radio! Totally agree.
