R.E.M. Good Advices Lyrics

When you greet a stranger, look at his shoes

Keep your money in your shoes, put your trouble behind

When you greet a stranger, look at her hands

Keep your money in your hands, put your travel behind

Who are you going to call for, what do you have to say

Keep your hat on your head

Home is a long way away

At the end of the day, I’ll forget your name

I’d like it here if I could leave and see you from a long way away

When you greet a stranger, look at his shoes

Keep you memories in your shoes, put your travel behind

Who are you going to call for, what do you have to say

Keep your hat on your head

Home is a long way away

At the end of the day, when there are no friends

When there are no lovers, who are you going to call for

What do you have to change

A familiar face, a foreign place, I’ll forget your name

I’d like it here if I could leave and see you from a long way away

Who are you going to call for, what do you have to say

Keep your hat on your head

Home is a long way away
