Journal Entry: Thu Apr 7, 2011, 5:10 AM
For given occasion, I decided to update this older journal feature.
Bye for now, R.E.M.!
remhq.com/news_story.php?id=14…



Nothing could be bring me closer
Nothing could be bring me near
Where is the road I follow
To leave, leave?



It's under, under, under my feet
The sea spread out there before me
Where do I go when the land touches sea?
There is my trust in what I believe



That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me down
To leave, believe it
Leave it all behind



Shifting the dream
Nothing could bring me further from my old friend time
Shifting the dream
It's charging the scene
I know where I marked the signs



I suffer the dreams of a world gone mad
I like it like that and I know it
I know it well, ugly and sweet
I temper madness with an even extreme



That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me down
I say that I'm a bantam lightweight
I say that I'm a phantom airplane
That never left the ground



That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me down
To leave it, believe it
Leave it all behind



Lift me, lift me
I attain my dream
I lost myself, I lost the heartache calling me
I lost myself in sorrow, I lost myself in pain.
I lost myself in gravity
Memory, leave, leave



That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me
That's what keeps me down
To leave it, believe it
Leave it all behind



Lift my hands, my eyes are still
I'll walk into the sea
Shoot myself in a different place
And leave it



I've longed for this to take me
I've longed for my release
I've waited for the callin'
To leave, leave



(R.E.M., Leave)
[Album Version]
[Live at "Rock am Ring" 2005]

Probably one of their best songs, if not their very best.

I perfectly understood, but a journal is not necessarily a printed magazine. ;) I know that this term can be confusing in German, so let's call this journal a kind of blog. :hug:
