Το “You Are The Everything” από το άλμπουμ Green των R.E.M., δεν είναι απ΄τα διάσημα τραγούδια τους.
Έγινε όμως το αγαπημένο μου απ’ την στιγμή που το άκουσα …και εξακολουθεί να είναι. Το ακούμε στη στουντιακή και τη live version [βίντεο]

You Are The Everything’ from R.E.M.’s Green album, is not one of their best known songs.
But it became my favorite from the moment I first heard it … and still is. He hear it on the studio and the live version

❝ Sometimes I feel like I can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
I’m very scared for this world, I’m very scared for me (say, say, the light)
Eviscerate your memory
Here’s a scene
You’re in the backseat laying down, the windows wrap around (say, say, the light)
To sound of the travel and the engine (say, say, the light)
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn’t end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you’ve ever seen
And they’re there for you
For you alone, you are the everything
I think about this world a lot and I cry (say, say, the light)
And I’ve seen the films and the eyes
But I’m in this kitchen (say, say, the light)
Everything is beautiful
And she is so beautiful (say, say, the light)
She is so young and old
I look at her and I see the beauty of the light of music (say, say, the light)
The voices talking somewhere in the house, late spring
And you’re drifting off to sleep with your teeth in your mouth
You are here with me
You are here with me
You have been here and you are everything
Sometimes I feel like I can’t even sing (say, say, the light)
I’m very scared for this world, I’m very scared for me (say, say, the light)
Eviscerate your memory
Here’s a scene
You’re in the backseat laying down, the windows wrap around (say, say, the light)
To the sound of the travel and the engine (say, say, the light)
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn’t end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The greatest thing you’ve ever seen
And they’re there for you
For you alone, you are the everything
For you alone you are the everything

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
