(Howie) I wanna go wherever you go (Not today) I wanna sing whatever you sing (It’s not in your range) There’s got a be a part that I can play on your stage, (no way, Jose)
Cause the spot light always shines on you, that’s why
I just wanna step Into your shadow, no, no Pollyanna’s shadow, no, no
(Pollyanna) You’re always stepping on my shoe strings (let me tie the not) You’re always hanging with my friend and me (three’s company) Ya got a dance to your own melody, write your song (Then we’ll get along)
Now it’s time for you to take the lead, Howie. please
You gotta step out of my shadow, oh, no Pollyanna’s shadow, oh, no You’re standing in my shadow, oh, no Pollyanna’s shadow, oh, no
You’ve got to make Your own way And know that you’ll be a-ok Out of the dark Into the light You’ll shine so bright
Out of my Shadow oh, oh I’m out of your shadow, oh, oh Pollyanna’s shadow oh, oh Pollyanna’s shadow oh, oh
Pollyanna’s Shadow I feel the sun on my face Pollyanna’s Shadow No time to waste Pollyanna’s Shadow Pollyanna’s Shadow Pollyanna’s Shadow Oh, oh

"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
