Texarkana Lyrics - R.E.M.

Review The Song (4)



(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)



20,000 miles to an oasis
20,000 years will I burn
20,000 chances I wasted
Waiting for the moment to turn
I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

Walking through the woods I have faced it
Looking for something to learn
30,000 thoughts have replaced it,
Never in my time to return
I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

All alone

Waiting to fall

40,000 stars in the evening
Look at them fall from the sky
40,000 reasons for living
40,000 tears in your eye

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall

If you listen to the original demo of the song, it's Stipe rather than Mills singing. The lyrics are completely different and are about "Texarkana". So, even though the singer and lyrics were changed - it seems that REM kept the song title the same.



Canticle | Reviewer: Blake | 12/8/07

I also feel this is a great song. The book "A Canticle for Leibowitz" follows a Roman-Catholic abby and the monks quest to preserve knowledge after the Cold War destroys most of civilization. The abby is in the center of the desert of Utah (I think) and the story takes place over several thousand years. The book is out of print, but you can find it if you know where to look. Also, if you like this song, buy more REM albums. The band is amazing.



re: Texarkana | Reviewer: Will | 9/12/07

I may be wrong, but I was told by someone that the lyrics are a nod to the book "A Canticle for Leibowitz", in which Texarkana is the centre of the Texark empire, which rules the western hemisphere.



"Texarkana" R-E-M Great Song, but what does it mean?! | Reviewer: Mark Storey | 1/5/07

Great Song. Wonderful bass line ... interesting lyrics, but what does "Texarkana" have to do with this song? !!
