R.E.M. - E Bow The Letter lyrics


Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise
The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m.
This letter

Fields of poppies, little pearls
All the boys and all the girls, sweet-toothed
Each and every one a little scary
I said your name

I wore it like a badge of teenage film stars
Hash bars, cherry mash and tinfoil tiaras
Dreaming of Maria Callas
Whoever she is

This fame thing, I don't get it
I wrap my hand in plastic to try to look through it
Maybelline eyes and girl-as-boy moves
It can take you far
This star thing, I don't get it

(I'll take you over, there)
(I'll take you over, there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over)
It tastes like fear, there
(I'll take you over)

Will you live to 83?
Will you ever welcome me?
Will you show me something that nobody else has seen?
Smoke it, drink
Here comes the flood
Anything to thin the blood
These corrosives do their magic slowly and sweet

Phone, eat it, drink
Just another chink
Cuts and dents, they catch the light
Aluminum, the weakest link

I don't want to disappoint you
I'm not here to anoint you
I would lick your feet
But is that the sickest move?
I wear my own crown and sadness and sorrow
And who'd have thought tomorrow could be so strange?
My loss and here we go again

(I'll take you over, there)
(I'll take you over, take you there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over, there)
It tastes like fear, there
(I'll take you over)

Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise

I can't look it in the eyes
Seconal, Spanish fly, absinthe, kerosene
Cherry-flavored neck and collar
I can smell the sorrow on your breath
The sweat, the victory and sorrow
The smell of fear, I got it

(I'll take you over, there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over, take you there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over, take you there)
It tastes like fear
Pulls us near
(I'll take you over, take you there)
It tastes like fear
Pulls us near

(Pulls us near)
It tastes like fear
(Tastes like fear)
It pulls us near
(Pulls us near)
nearer, nearer, nearer, nearer
(over, over, over, over, over, over)
(yeah, look, oh, there)
I'll take you there,
I'll take you there,
I'll take you there
(oh, over)
I'll take you there
(over, baby)
I'll take you there
I'll take you there
(there, there, there, baby, ooh)
