Half A World Away - R.E.M.

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 is 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.

This 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 it along
To go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along and hold it

Blackbirds backwards forwards and fall and hold, hold.
And 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.
