R.E.M. - She Just Wants To Be Lyrics




It's not that she walked away
Her world got smaller
All the usual places
The same destinations
Only something's changed.

It's not that she wasn't rewarded
With pomegranate afternoons
And Mingus, Chet Baker and chess
It's not stampede and fortune
Of prim affectations
She's off on a riot(?)
And she knows now
Is greater than the whole
Of the past
Is greater and now she knows

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.

It's not that the transparency
Of her earlier incarnations
Now looked back on
Were rich and loaded
With beautiful vulnerability
But now she knows
Now is greater
And she knows that.

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.

Now is greater
Now is greater
And she knows that.

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
She just wants to be.

It's not like if angels
Could truly look down
Stir up the trappings
A light on the ground
Remind us of what, when, why or who
The how's up to us
Me and you
And now is greater than the whole
Of the past
Is greater and now she knows that.

Now she knows.

    It's not that she wasn't rewarded

    And Mingus, Chet Baker and chess
    It's not stampede and fortune

    She's off on a riot
    But she knows now
    Is greater than the whole
    Of the past
    Is greater and now she knows


    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be
    She just wants to be somewhere

    It's not that she walked away
    Her road grew smaller
    All the same destinations
    Only something's changed.

    It's not that she wasn't rewarded
    With pomegranate afternoons
    Mingus, Chet Baker and chess
    It's not stamped in fortune
    A prim affectations
    She's off on the run
    And she knows now
    Is greater than the whole
    Of the past
    Is greater and now she knows

    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be
    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be

    It's not that the transparency
    Of her earlier incarnations
    Now look back on
    Were rich and loaded
    With beautiful vulnerability
    But now she knows
    Now is greater
    And she knows that.

    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be
    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be.

    Now is greater
    Now is greater
    And she knows that.

    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be
    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be

    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be.
    She just wants to be somewhere
    She just wants to be.

    It's not like if angels
    Could truly look down
    Stir up the trappings
    And light on the ground
    Remind us of what, when, why or who
    The how's up to us
    Me and you
    And now is greater than the whole
    Of the past
    Is greater and now she knows that.

    Now she knows.
