R.E.M.: Out of Time: Half a World Away


 [Out of Time]

Half a World Away
I have a bootleg where Stipe introduces the song by saying "This song is about thinking your are in love, but realizing you're really just drunk." [drosen]

"My hand is tired"
From writing a letter, perhaps, but also quite possibly from masturbating. [Chris Piuma]

  Next song: Texarkana
