you are the everything lyrics – r.e.m.

“you are the everything”

sometimes i feel like i can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
i’m very scared for this world
i’m very scared for me
eviscerate your memory
here’s a scene
you’re in the back seat laying down
the windows wrap around
to sound of the travel and the engine

all you hear is time stand still in travel
and feel such peace and absolute
the stillness still that doesn’t end
but slowly drifts into sleep
the stars are the greatest thing you’ve ever seen
and they’re there for you
for you alone you are the everything

i think about this world a lot and i cry
and i’ve seen the films and the eyes
but i’m in this kitchen
everything is beautiful
and she is so beautiful
she is so young and old
i look at her and i see the beauty
of the light of music

the voices talking somewhere in the house
late spring and you’re drifting off to sleep
with your teeth in your mouth
you are here with me
you are here with me
you have been here and you are everything

sometimes i feel like i can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
i’m very scared for this world
i’m very scared for me
eviscerate your memory
here’s a scene
you’re in the back seat laying down
the windows wrap around (say, say, the light)
to sound of the travel and the engine

all you hear is time stand still in travel
and feel such peace and absolute
the stillness still that doesn’t end
but slowly drifts into sleep
the greatest thing you’ve ever seen
and they’re there for you
for you alone you are the everything
