R.E.M. Lyrics

Beat A Drum

the sun reflected in
the back of my eye.
I knocked my head against the sky.

the dragonflies are busy buzzing me.
a seahorse as if we were in the sea.

half way from coal
half way to diamond.
my fall knocked a mean chip out of me.
gathering as far as I can reach.
perched up on the precipice
and this is what I've seen.

this is all I want,
it's all I need.
this is all I am.
this is all I want,
it's all I need.

a bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.
doctorate in science and the theologians dream.
the dragonflies are trying to lecture me.
a seahorse as if we were in the sea.

but this is all I want,
it's all I need.
this is all I am,
it's everything.
this is all I want,
it's all I need.

beat a drum for me
like a butterfly wing.
tropical storm across the ocean.

but don't explain I'm sure I'll want to know
but don't forget we're just halfway from home.

this is all I want,
it's all I need.
this is all I am,
it's everything.
this is all I want,
it's all I need.
