Losing my religion

I ‘ve got the love for you if you were in your teens in the 90s!! the 90s!! :-)( Yup Calvin Harris should have sung it this way eh?)

REM – Rock and Roll love – thanks to Atticus, who danced away in our house annoying Amma to rock music, when I and Vava joined him, which annoyed Amma more. She was always into old Malayam melodies and perhaps Jazz would be the max she could take, in the western music genre.

This song is on my playlist for decades and will be there for keeps I think. A song which people thought will not do well in the charts, shot up like fire, competing with Nirvana who was another sensation that time. Oh, Kurt, the Hunk Kurt, and poor muted soft Stipe. But anyway the song is a sensational song, loved it then and love it now.

Here is it people, for my jukebox 🙂 My jukebox is for people who are fed up with POP music drivel( Yup am old :D, fine ) from Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Shereen, Enrique blah blah! Oh, and people who like Friends won’t like my jukebox I have noticed as well 😀 That somehow makes me happy. Evil grin!

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

But that was just a dream
Try, cry
Why try?
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
Thank you
See ya
Thanks a lot
