Belong

Album: Out Of Time (1991)
  • Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
    She got up from the kitchen table
    Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
    Those creatures jumped the barricades
    And have headed for the sea, sea

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Those creatures jumped the barricades
    And have headed for the sea
    She began to breathe
    To breathe at the thought of such freedom
    Stood and whispered to her child, "belong"
    She held the child and whispered
    With calm, calm, "belong"

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    She stood and whispered to her child, "belong"
    She held the child and whispered
    With calm, calm, "belong"

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Those barricades can only hold for so long
    Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
    She took the child held tight
    Opened the window
    A breath, this song, how long
    And knew, knew, "belong"
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh

    Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
    She got up from the kitchen table
    Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
    Those creatures jumped the barricades
    And have headed for the sea, sea

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Those creatures jumped the barricades
    And have headed for the sea
    She began to breathe
    To breathe at the thought of such freedom
    Stood and whispered to her child, belong
    She held the child and whispered
    With calm, calm, belong

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh

    She stood and whispered to her child, belong
    She held the child and whispered
    With calm, calm, belong

    Those barricades can only hold for so long
    Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
    She took the child held tight

  • Mark from New York, NyFantastic song, fantastic vocals (especially MTV live version.
  • Tom from Marietta, OhI love the song and the imagery of it (although I was never quite sure what it all meant), but what amazes me most about this article is that there is a word specifically for the act of throwing something out of a window.
