ATF: Deep

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.

Losing My Religion
R.E.M.
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 spot
Light
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

That was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spot
Light
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



One of Us
Joan Osborne
If God had a name
What would it be
And would you call it to His face
If you were faced with Him
In all His glory
What would you ask
If you had just one question

And yeah
Yeah
God is great
Yeah
Yeah
God is good
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

If God had a face
What would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like Heaven
And in Jesus
And the Saints
And all the Prophets

And yeah
Yeah
God is great
Yeah
Yeah
God is good
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home
Tryin' to make His way home
Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope
Maybe in Rome

Yeah
Yeah
God is great
Yeah
Yeah
God is good
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home
Just tryin' to make His way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to Heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make His way home

Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope
Maybe in Rome

  3. Seeing the lyrics of both was a real treat, since I remembered them to be quite different.
