discoverer lyrics – r.e.m.

“discoverer”

hey baby
this is not a challenge
it just means that i don’t love you as much as i always said i did

i was wrong
i have been laughable wrong
sandpaper, paper mache, chalk, and hung out web

of the city and your skin now..
i didn’t have to be afraid
i didn’t have to feel so stupid
i can see myself! i can feel

that’s just the slightest bit of finesse
might have made a little less mess
but it was what it was,
let’s all get on with it, now!

discoverer! [4x]
laughing! [laughing]
discoverer!

floating across houston
this is where i am.
i see the city rise up tall.
the opportunities and possibilities.
well, i have never felt so called.

remember the vodka espresso night of discovery,
remember that?
laughing! discovery!
oh how i look back and reflect
how i felt it, how it set.
i don’t have to feel so wrong
now i wake up dreaming saffron, turmeric and br*ss

just the slightest bit of finesse
might have made a little less mess
but it was what it was,
let’s all get on with it, now!

just the slightest bit of finesse
might have made a little less mess
but it was what it was,
let’s all get on with it, now!

discoverer! [5x]
