i remember california lyrics – r.e.m.

“i remember california”

i remember redwood trees, b*mper cars and wolverines
the ocean’s trident submarines
lemons, limes and tangerines
i remember this

i remember traffic jams
motor boys and girls with tans
nearly was and almost rans
i remember this

history is made
history is made to seem unfair

i recall that you were there
golden smile and shining hair
i recall it wasn’t fair
recollect it wasn’t fair
remembering it wasn’t fair outside

low ebb, high tide
the lowest ebb and highest tide
a symbol wave i must confide
i guess we took us for a ride
i guess it’s just a gesture

i remember this defense
progress fails pacific sense
all those sweet conspiracies
i remember all these things

i remember traffic jams
motor boys and girls with tans
nearly was and almost rans
i remember this, this

low ebb, high tide
the lowest ebb and highest tide
i guess we took us for a ride
i guess its just a gesture.

at the end of the continent
at the edge of the continent
