Losing my religion...


Oh, life is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up.

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour I'm
Choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool.
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up.

Consider this. Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try
But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner.
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion.
Trying to keep up with you.
And I don't know if I can do it.
Oh no, I've said too much.

I haven't said enough.
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing.
I think I thought I saw you try.
That was just a dream.

Try. Cry. Fly. Try.
But that was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream, dream.

If you ever heard Michael Stipes introduction u will realize that the song has nothing to do with religion. It's about a guy who is mad about a girl and she doesn't know it yet and he's losing his mind over the situation
