It’s happening again
Underneath my skin
I think you better check my pulse and get me a doctor

I’m hardly pulling through
I’m looking up at you
Lighting up the room the way you do
Come and get me

You make me smile
You make me laugh
You give me the warmest heart attack

And it doesn’t seem stop
The knowledge that you drop
You always say it like it is and I think that’s hot

I can’t keep up with you
Maybe I should go back to school
I think I’ve been outsmarted
I think that I'm retarded for you

‘Cos you make me smile
You make me laugh
You give me the warmest heart attack
Yeah you make me smile
You make me laugh
You give me the warmest heart attack

You make me smile
You make me laugh
You give me the warmest heart attack

And everyday we go together
make our garden
growing up, growing old
I only need your hand to hold
you're everything that's special to me
early spring, new words to sing
and old R.E.M.


You make me smile
You make me laugh
You give me the warmest heart attack

You make me smile (you make me smile)
You make me laugh (you make me laugh)
You give me the warmest heart attack

    General CommentI know these bootlegged song’s length can fluctuate a bit, but if you listen to the song from 1:16 – 1:20 and then from 2:04 – 2:21, I would like to know what you guys think Mr. Jeff Caudill is saying. I can’t decipher it.

    General Commentdoesn't he say "i think that i'm retarded for you?" and then the other part, all's i can get out of it is "make our garden growin up, growin old" hah, i know it may not be right and it may sound a little corny, but that's what i got. the other lyric is just still a mystery to me.

    General CommentTactility, no, but some sort of sub-epidermal fantasy. Things that you can't touch, nothing is out of reach, everything is possible... something's lurking beneath the skin, something rushes through, never to surface in one's concious thought.

    General Comment I have the CD with the lyrics right in it so here you go:
    "I think that I'm retarded for you...."
    and then:
    "Every day we go together
    make our garden
    growing up, growing old
    I only need your hand to hold
    you're everything that's special to me
    early spring, new words to sing
    and old R.E.M."

    Hope that helps!

    General CommentI think this song is a sort of 'part "2" to the (also great) song my star from the album before this. i think a lot of the songs on this album can be considered to be a pt 2. Hey radio (1) and always on, robots and june and a couple more I can't think of right now... But it's a greatr band, and highly underrated to my opinion
