Suspicion - Lyrics by REM


now my suspicion's on the rise
i have known i have known your kind
please don't talk don't make me think
order up another drink
let me let imagination drive

can't you see
i need
nothing too deep

come alive
tonight i'll dream tonight

listen to the devils in my ear
tell me what what i want to hear
you're so funny you're so fine
you're so perfect you're so mine
that i never had an opportunity
to hide
no i never had a chance

can't you see
i need
nothing too deep

come alive
tonight i'll dream tonight

look into my eyes
they hypnotize
the lights the drinks
let the music carry you away

my eyes are blurred
my sights are limited
am i sensing a familiar twinge

please don't speak
make me think
it's all too deep

come alive
step down i'll dream tonight

step down i'll dream
you're so naked baby
carry me away
dream dream
