Leaving New York Lyrics

It's quiet now, and what it brings, is everything
comes calling back, a brilliant night, I'm still awake
I looked ahead, I'm sure I saw you there.
You don't need me to tell you now, that nothing can compare

(chorus)
You might've laughed if I told you,
You might have hidden you're frown.
You might've succeeded in changing me,
I might've been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
Leaving was never my proud,
Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out.

Now life is sweet, and what it brings
I tried to take.
the loneliness it wears me out,
it lies in wake.
and all I 've lost, you're in my eyes,
shatter a necklace across your thighs
i might've lived my life in a dream
but i swear it, it's real
and you refuse, and it shatters like glass
mercurial future, forget the past,
but it's you, it's what I feel

You might've laughed if I told you,
You might have hidden you're frown.
You might've succeeded in changing me,
I might've been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
Leaving was never my proud,
Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out.

Find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart,
Find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart.

I told you, forever, I love you, forever - continues during
I told you, forever, I love you, forever / last chorus.
I told you, forever, I love you, forever
I told you, forever, I love you, forever

You might've laughed if I told you,
You might have hidden you're frown.
You might've succeeded in changing me,
I might've been turned around.
It's easier to leave than to be left behind,
Leaving was never my proud,
Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out.

Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out

Leaving New York never easy,
I saw the light fading out

In dem Lied geht es vor allem darum, den USA den Rücken zu kehren als Antwort auf die Politik und den Irak-Krieg, die sich aus dem 11. Sept. 2001 entwickelt haben. Es geht nicht um die Wehmut hinsichtlich des Verlassens von Urlaubsorten, vielmehr um die Enttäuschung und die Umwälzungen der eigenen Heimat (New York steht hier als Dreh- und Angelpunkt und stellvertretend für die USA). Das liest sich auch gut in und hinter den Zeilen...

"I told you, forever, I love you, forever - continues during
I told you, forever, I love you, forever / last chorus.
I told you, forever, I love you, forever
I told you, forever, I love you, forever"

Einfach ein toller R.E.M. Song. Meiner Meinung nach einer der allerbesten...
