R.E.M. Try Not To Breathe
I will try not to breathe.
I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees.
These eyes are the eyes of the old, shiver and fold.
I will try not to breathe.
This decision is mine.  I have lived a full life
and these are the eyes that I want you to remember.  Oh.
I need something to fly over my grave again.
I need something to breathe.
I will try not to burden you.
I can hold these inside.  I will hold my breath
until all these shivers subside,
just look in my eyes.
I will try not to worry you.
I have seen things that you will never see.
Leave it to memory me.  I shudder to breathe.
I want you to remember.  Oh.       
(you will never see)
I need something to fly            
(something to fly)
over my grave again.               
(you will never see)
I need something to breathe.       
(something to breathe)
Baby, don't shiver now.
Why do you shiver now?             
(I will see things you will never see)
I need something to fly            
(something to fly)
over my grave again.               
(I will see things you will never see)
I need something to breathe.  Oh. Oh. Oh.
I will try not to worry you.
I have seen things that you will never see.
Leave it to memory me.  Don't dare me to breathe.
I want you to remember.  Oh.       
(you will never see)
I need something to fly            
(something to fly)
over my grave again.               
(you will never see)
I need something to breathe.       
(something to breathe)
Baby, don't shiver now.
Why do you shiver now?             
(I will see things you will never see)
I need something to breathe.       
(something to breathe - I have seen things
(You will never see)
I want you to remember.
