Losing My Religion

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  
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 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 try try try  
That was just a dream 
Just a dream
