R.E.M. Walk Unafraid Lyrics

Last updated: 09/29/2013 01:08:56 PM

As the sun comes up, as the moon goes down
These heavy notions creep around
It makes me think
Long ago I was brought into this life, a little lamb
A little lamb
Courageous, stumbling
Fearless was my middle name
But somewhere there I
Lost my way
Everyone walks the same
Expecting me to step
The narrow path they've laid
They claim to

Walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
Hope might love me or leave me high

Say "keep within the boundaries if you want to play"
Say "contradiction only makes it harder"
How can I be
What I want to be?
When all I want to do is strip away
These stilled constraints
And crush this charade
Shred this sad masquerade
I don't need no persuading
I'll trip, fall, pick myself up and

(repeat chorus)

If I have a bag of rocks to carry as I go
I just want to hold my head up high
I don't care what I have to step over
I'm prepared to look you in the eye
Look me in the eye
And if you see familiarity
Then celebrate the contradiction
Help me when I fall to

(repeat chorus 2x)

Thank god | Reviewer: Squiggly Mittens | 1/20/13

Thank God for "anonymous" and his/her ability to hear properly. I wish that people with no idea whatsoever wouldn't post what they think the lyrics are because OMG this is ridiculous.

"Hold my love me" !???? NOT!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/13/08

Does this make any sense?? No, of course not. Unbelievable how 1 person writes these lyrics and it spreads virally all over the internet.

Try "Hope might love me or leave me high".

Listen again. Now it makes sense, doesn't it?
