Losing My Religion (Letra/Lyrics)

Oh, life is bigger
It's bigger
Than you and you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I've said too much
I set it up

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I've said too much
I set it up

Consider this
Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry
Why try?
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
Dream

Sobre Losing My Religion

  • El compositor de R.E.M. utilizó la expresión que da nombre al hit como una metáfora del amor que no es correspondido. Por otra parte, la confusión provocada por el enamoramiento romántico se compara con la del sufrimiento santo. La ambigüedad de la letra se pone de manifiesto en fragmentos como este: «Nunca puedes estar seguro de si la persona que estás buscando conoce tu existencia». Puede que para muchos siga siendo una canción con mensaje religioso, pero Stipe la escribió pensando en el desamor.
