Losing My Religion


by R.E.M.
I:	( F - - - /   / Am - - - /   / F - - - /   / Am - - - / G - - - //)

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

Am - - - /   / Em - - - /   /  x4  /  x4  / Dm - - - /   / G - - - /   //

That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight 
Losing my religion, trying to keep an eye on you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said to much, I haven't said enough

 C1:	I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

F - - - / - - G - / Am - - - /   / F - - - / Dm - - - / Am - - - / G - - - //

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?
And now, I've said too much

 C1:	I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

  B:	But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

( Am - - - / G - - - / F - - - / G - - - /) C - - - / Dm - - - /  x2  //

That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion, trying to keep an eye on you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said to much, I haven't said enough

 C2:	I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

F - - - / - - G - / Am - - - /   / F - - - / Dm - - - / Am - - - /     //	

But that was just a dream.  Try.  Cry.  Why?  Try.
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream, dream

F - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / G - - - / 
F - - - / Dm - - - / Am - - - / G - - - / ( Am - - - /   /   /   //)
