R.E.M. - The Boy In The Well Lyrics




Look at this, it's me, walking away.
Look at you drowning, on display.
Every time I've dropped by, I've tried to say
The water is rising.
You don't want to stay.

It's that sinking feeling. you know what it's bringing on.
You might as well say it,
I see it, I feel it.
This town is going wrong.
It's turning away.

You wanted me to be someone that I could never be
My new friends are offering things I've never dreamed
It's beautiful
I'd like for them to take me on ...

The track mall gang went off
On the Tennessee goth. a lunar moth,
You chrysalis and flail.
The water is rising. you try to rappel.
A rousing cheer for the boy in the well.

It's that sinking feeling. you know what it's bringing on.
You might as well say it,
I see it, I feel it.
This town is going wrong.
It's turning away.

You wanted me to be someone that I could never be
My new friends are offering things I've never dreamed
It's beautiful
I'd like for them to take me on ...

Here is where I look back.
Here is where you fell.
This is where I got up,
Shaking off my tail
This is where your rope trick
Started to look stale.
A greyhound pass for the boy in the well.

It's that sinking feeling
You know what it's bringing on
I might as well say it.
I see it, I feel it
This town is going wrong.
It's turning away.

You wanted me to be someone that I could never be
My new friends are offering things I've never dreamed
It's beautiful
I'd like for them to take me on

You wanted me to be someone that I could never be
My new friends are offering things I've never dreamed
It's beautiful
I'd like for them to take me on

  1. vilma Goncalves

    beautiful : REM of my heart

  2. kiernan thomas

    This is REM's worst album . And this song sucks.

    George Clancy

    Yeah they seemed jaded and uninterested throughout the whole album.

    Fred H

    @George Clancy I wouldn't say quite the whole album. Leaving New York works really well and Aftermath has some energy to it that the others lack. But it's definitely their weakest.

    YoutubSUCKZ

    no, your mother sucks.

  3. guss quezada

    Que atmosfera dramatica ........................ maestros !!!

  4. K.Y.C.B klean

    It's beautiful,
    I'd like for them to take me on

  7. Enrique Moreale

    Great!!! Rem forever

  8. Gianluca Rezzonico

    Perché hanno tolto il video?? Era bellissimo cavolo!

  9. Rodrigo Pereda

    rem!! como quisiera ver esta banda en vivo alguna vez..

  10. Luigifan18

    To me, this is the Bystander Syndrome song. All that's required for needless tragedy to occur is for people to just sit back and do nothing.

    Pete And Billy

    Maybe it is somebody who has given there all to a cause and simply had enough to get personal sanity. As a very hard worker who has given everything to the perpetual ungrateful, I can relate clearly to this great song !

    Darren Walshe

    do nothing is paramount to life, it's were peace is

  11. Paulina Gołębiowska

    one of my fav song by them

  12. Abel Racoviță
