Losing My Religion
Losingmyreligion
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: October 5, 2010
By: R.E.M.
Sung by: Finn Hudson
Place: William McKinley High School and The Choir Room
Episode: Grilled Cheesus

Losing My Religion by R.E.M. is featured in Grilled Cheesus, the third episode of Season Two. It is sung by Finn.

He sings this because this episode is about his drastic change in religion from skepticism to full-blown belief, and then back to skepticism. Finn is very emotionally conflicted by this. 

Lyrics

Finn:
Oh life, it's bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I've said too much
I've said enough

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper 
Of every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I've said too much
I've said enough

Consider this
Consider this, the hint of the century
Consider this, the slip
That brought me to my knees, failed
What if all these fantasies come
Flailing around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry, why try
That was just a dream
Just a dream

Just a dream, dream

Trivia

  • There are several intepretations of the the original song, but it was definitely not written about literally losing a religion.
    • One interpretation is that the song was written as a sort of hate-letter to fame and the phrase "losing my religion" means to lose one's temper).
