REM - Leaving New York Lyrics


It's quiet now

And what it brings

Is everything



Comes calling back

A brilliant night

I'm still awake



I looked ahead

I'm sure I saw you there



You don't need me

To tell you now

That nothing can compare



You might have laughed if I told you

You might have hidden A frown

You might have succeeded in changing me

I might have been turned around



It's easier to leave than to be left behind

Leaving was never my proud

Leaving New York, never easy

I saw the light fading out



Now life is sweet

And what it brings

I tried to take

But loneliness

It wears me out

It lies in wait



And I've lost

Still in my eyes

The shadow of necklace

Across your thigh

I might've lived my life in a dream, but I swear

This is real

Memory fuses and shatters like glass

Mercurial future, forget the past

It's you, it's what I feel.



You might have laughed if I told you (it's pulling me apart)

You might have hidden a frown (change)

You might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)

I might have been turned around (change)



It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)

Leaving was never my proud (change)

Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)

I saw the light fading out

You find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart

You find it in your heart, change...



I told you, forever

I love you, forever

I told you, I love you

I love you, forever

I told you, forever

You never, you never

You told me forever



You might have laughed if I told you

You might have hidden the frown

You might have succeeded in changing me

I might have been turned around



It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)

Leaving was never my proud (change)

Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)

I saw the life fading out (change)

Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)

I saw the light fading out (change)

Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)

I saw the life fading out (change)
