Just A Touch - Lyrics by REM


Lyrics

Well what in the world? Women in black
Don't you remember send us back
A day in the life well nobody laughed
Look to the days how long can this last

Kevin heard it on the radio
Hugh informed word of mouth
Carla read it in the news
Caught it all just a touch

You set the pace of what was to come
I have to carry on now that you're gone
A day in the life well nobody laughed
Look to the days how long can this last

There's someone in our dreams
In our preassembled dream

Well what in the world? Women in black
Don't you remember send us back
A day in the life well nobody laughed
Look to the days how long can this last

I can't see where to worship Popeye, love Al Green,
I can't see, I'm so young, I'm so god damn young
