  • You're on your ear, the ocean's near.
    The light has started to fade.
    Your high is timed,
    You found the climb

    It's hard to focus on more than what's
    In front of you, electron blue.
    Adventure rings with a page.
    And when,

    It dawns on you, it singes blue,
    Your buzz beginning to wane.

    Adventure has laid its claim on you
    It's all you want to do
    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue.

    And who am I?
    I'm just a guy.
    I've got a story like everyone

    But in your eyes,
    You looked surprised.
    And didn't know where to run.

    I looked to her
    She's found the cure
    Her future's already begun.

    Tomorrow is gaining speed on you
    It's all you want to do
    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue.

    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue.

    So bide your time
    You'll feel the climb
    Your high it builds like a lightning storm

    It sings like pearls
    You know that girl
    And no one is any the wiser so

    As if on cue
    Electron blue
    Tomorrow is gaining speed on you
    It's all you want to do
    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue.

    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue.

    You, you know where to run
    You run electron blue. Writer/s: Peter Buck, Mike Mills, Michael Stipe

  • Mark from New York, NyI don't know why but I love this song. The monotony of the beat and the upbeat voclas just make me want to listen again and again.
