Lyrics for Near Wild Heaven by R.E.M.:

Verse 1
Whenever we hold each other
We hold each other
There's a feeling that's gone
Something has gone wrong
And I don't know how much longer I can take it
House made of heart, break it
Take my head in your hands and shake it
In this near wild heaven
Not near enough

Chorus
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven

Verse 2
Whatever it takes I'm giving
It's just a gift I'm given
Try to live inside
Trying to move inside
And I always thought that it would make me smarter
But it's only made me harder
My heart thrown open wide
In this near wild heaven
Not near enough

Chorus
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven
(Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven

Bridge
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) I'm holding my hands together
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) Holding my feet together
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) Holding myself together
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) In this near wild heaven
Not near enough
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba)
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) Near wild heaven
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba)
Near wild heaven

Chorus
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) (Living inside, living inside, living inside)
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) Near wild heaven
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) (Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven

Outro
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) (Living inside, living inside, living inside)
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) Near wild heaven
(Ba-ba-ba-ba ba ba) (Living inside, living inside, living inside)
Near wild heaven

Song Facts

A song about the twilight of a relationship – the feeling is gone, but the breakup hasn’t happened yet.

This is one of the handfull of R.E.M. songs with bassist Mike Mills on lead vocals (a few others being “Texarkana” and “(I Am) Superman”). Mills’s tone and knack for simple songwriting is reminiscent of the “sunshine pop of the 60’s,” as one blogger appropriately puts it. The song is simple, yet complete.
