  • This name I got we all were green
    See could stop, stop it well rid
    We could bind it in the scythe
    We could gather, throw a fit
    Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs, but not me in
    Set a trap for love, making, a waste of time sitting still

    I'm the sun and you can read
    I'm the sign and you're not deaf
    We could bind it in the scythe
    We could gather, throw a fit

    Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs, but not me in
    Set a trap for love, making, a waste of time sitting still
    I can hear you, I can hear you, I can hear you

    This name I got we all were green
    See could stop, stop it well rid
    We could bind it in the scythe
    We could gather, throw a fit

    Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs, but not me in
    Set a trap for love, making, a waste of time sitting still
    I can hear you, I can hear you, I can hear you

    You can gather when I talk, talk until you're blue
    You could get away from me, get away from me

    Up to par and Katie bars the kitchen signs, but not me in
    Set a trap for love, making, a waste of time sitting still
    I, I, I can hear you, I, I, I can hear you, I, I, I can hear you
    I, I, I can hear you, I, I, I can hear you, I, I, I can hear you
    Can you hear me? Writer/s: Bill Berry, Michael Mills, Michael Stipe, Peter Buck
