Twenty-thousand miles to an oasis
Twenty-thousand years will I burn
Twenty-thousand chances I've wasted
Waiting for the moment to turn

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

Walking through the woods, I have faced it
Looking for something to learn
Forty-thousand thoughts have been wasted
Never in my time to return

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

All my life
Waiting to find

Forty-thousand stars in the evening
Look at them fall from the sky
Forty-thousand reasons for living
Forty-thousand tears in your eyes

I would give my life to find it
I would give it all
Catch me if I fall

Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall, catch me if I fall
Catch me if I fall

    General CommentThe best song on Out of Time and one of my all time favorite REM songs. I'm still not sure why they titled it Texarkana, but the cryptic title adds to my love.

    Many years ago, a good friend of mine lived there, but he moved before I had the chance to visit and smell the town's putrid air.
