The 88


"At Least It Was Here" is the main theme song to Community recorded by the indie rock band The 88. It has been used in the opening title sequence since the Season One episode Spanish 101. The title has the song playing as the credits for the actors appear on a rotating paper fortune teller. In several episodes the song and the paper fortune teller have been changed to fit the theme of a particular episode such as in the Season Two episode "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons". In the Season Three episode "Introduction to Finality" a longer version of the song was used in a closing montage. The complete extended version of the song appears on the official Community soundtrack which was released on September 21, 2010. The abbreviated version is track 1 and the extended version is track 18.

Lyrics:

Give me some rope
Tie me to dream
Give me the hope
To run out of steam
Somebody said
It could be here
We could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year

I can't count the reasons I should stay
One by one they all just fade away

Lyrics:

Give me your hands
Show me the door
I cannot stand
To wait any more
Somebody said
Be what you'll be
We could be old and cold and dead on the sea

But I love you more than words can say
I can't count the reasons I should stay

Give me some rope
Tie me to dream
Give me the hope
to run out of steam
Somebody said
it can be here
We could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year

I can't count the reasons I should stay
One by one they all just fade away

I'm tired of the wait and sees
I'm tired of that part of me
That makes up a perfect lie
To keep us between
But hours turn into days
So watch what you throw away
And be here to recognize
There's another way

Give me some more
Tie me to dream
Give me the hope to run out of steam
Somebody said it can be here
We could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year

But I love you more than words can say
I can't count the reasons I should stay
One by one they all just fade away
Oh I love you more than words can say


Trivia

Incorrect lyrics

The lyrics have become somewhat controversial as it’s been interpreted by fans to have a darker meaning. Particularly the line “Tie me to dream” has been misheard by some fans as “Tie me to tree” or “Tie me to a tree” which seems to indicate hanging. According to the official lyrics, seen HERE, that’s not the case. This article has been changed to these wrong lyrics so many times that a block was put on this page on November 16, 2017 to prevent further incorrect edits.



Tie me to dream
“TIE ME TO DREAM” not “TIE ME TO TREE”
