home: r.e.m ยป r.e.m - beat a drum

Testo beat a drum - r.e.m

The sun reflected in

The back of my eye.

I knocked my head against the sky.



The dragonflies are busy buzzing me.

A seahorse as if we were in the sea.



Half way from coal

Half way from diamond.

My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

Gathering as far as I can reach.

Perched up on a precipice

And this is what I've seen.



This is all I want


It's all I need.

This is all I am.

This is all I want


It's all I need.



A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.

Doctorate in science and a theologians dream



The dragonflies are trying to lecture me.

The seahorses as if we were in the sea.



But this is all I want


It's all I need.

This is all I am


It's everything.

This is all I want


It's all I need.



Beat a drum for me

Like a butterfly wing.

Tropical storm across the ocean.



But don't explain I'm sure I'll want to know

Don't forget we're just half way from coal.



This is all I want


It's all I need.

This is all I am


It's everything.

This is all I want


It's all I need.
