Imitation of Life – R.E.M

 

Charades, pop skill

Water hyacinth, named by a poet

Imitation of life

Like a koi in a frozen pond

Like a goldfish in a bowl

I don’t want to hear you cry

 

Chorus : That`s sugarcane

That tasted good

That`s cinnamon

That`s Hollywood

C`mon c`mon no one can see you try

 

You want the greatest thing

The greatest thing since bread came sliced

You`ve got it all, all you`ve got it sized

Like a Friday fashion show teenager

Freezing in the corner

Trying to look like you don`t try

 

Back to chorus

 

No one can see you cry

That sugarcane that tasted good

That`s freezing rain that`s what you could

C`mon c`mon no one can see you cry

 

This sugarcane, this lemonade

This hurricane, I`m not afraid

C`mon c`mon no one can see me cry

 

This lightning storm, this tidal wave

This avalanche, I`m not afraid

C`mon c`mon no one can see me cry

 

That`s sugarcane that`s tasted good

That`s who you are, that`s what you could

C`mon c`mon no one can see you cry

 

That`s sugarcane that`s tasted good

That`s who you are, that`s what you could

C`mon c`mon no one can see you cry…..
