R.E.M. Let Me In Lyrics

Last updated: 08/09/2011 11:00:00 AM


Yeah, all those stars drip down like butter,
And promises are sweet,
We hold out our pans with our hands to catch them
We eat them up, drink them up, up, up, up

Hey, let me in
Hey, let me in

I only wish that I could hear you whisper down,
Mister fisher moved to a less peculiar ground
He gathered up his loved ones and he brought them all around
To say goodbye, nice try

Hey, let me in. Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, let me in, let me in

I had a mind to try to stop you. Let me in, let me in
But I've got tar on my feet and I can't see
All the birds look down and laugh at me
Clumsy, crawling out of my skin

Hey, let me in. Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, let me in
Hey, let me in. Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey, let me in

There will only ever be one Kurt | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/8/11

Kurt given had very many issues he struggled with. However he was loved and cherished regardless of that. he put more into his lyrics than most have in their heart. we can all agree on this. Ironically for me his lyrics have kept me from from suicide and drug use. He wasn't murdered it was his time we just weren't ready to let go. What he needed was a Kurt of his own. Rest in peace kurt.

song for a friend | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/11/11

kurt was not murdered. he was ill. he had been suffering a long, long time. the whole idolatry was not what he had wanted. he could not handle being that idolised. he would have way preferred to have had a solid career to enjoy, keep his family fed and comfortable. music was his life but he rejected the whole falseness of stardom. i understand that! michael was his friend and they had song collaborations in the works and this song is by stipe, to his friend, whom he lost too soon, before they could make somethin kurt would have loved.

It's about Kurt | Reviewer: Dimitris from Greece | 11/7/08

This song is dedicated by Stipe to Kurt Cobain.Stipe and Kurt arranged to make a song just a few days before kurt was murdered(yes he WAS MURDERED).Just understand it.for those who believe he killed himself just visit to and and you will understand that he was murdered.So Stipe told about a song they would write days after Cobain's death.It's A lovely song to hear and just to think of Kurt.Kurt we luv u and we miss u soooo would be better if you were here with us.and for those hip hop guys that tell bad things about rock music just stay and listen these craps and don't speak about rock music.rock music it's about TALENT.and unknown word for just SHUT UP!Kurt Cobain 20-2-1967--forever....a 17 year old fan of Kurt from Greece...<3

Michael Stipes tribute to Kurt Cobain....his friend and fellow rocker who he wished to collaborate with...Cobain was a big REM fan, and envied their music for falling away from the mainstream music

RIP Kurt D. Cobain | Reviewer: Mulej | 6/4/07

Michael wrote this song after his friend Cobaine died..
