Talking Heads is an American rock band.
Fear of Music (1979)
- I will find a city, find myself a city to live in.
- This ain’t no party. This ain’t no disco.
This ain’t no fooling around.
- Oh heaven,
heaven is a place,
a place where nothing,
nothing ever happens.
Remain in Light (1980)
- The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it swivels and bops
The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it bounces and hops
- The Great Curve
- Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
- Crosseyed and Painless
- And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house ... with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, "Well ... how did I get here?"
- Same as it ever was.
Speaking in Tongues (1983)
- It's always showtime
Here at the edge of the stage
- Girlfriend Is Better
- Stop making sense.
- Girlfriend Is Better
- It's OK, I know nothing's wrong, nothing.
- I got plenty of time
You got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love
- I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two.
Little Creatures (1985)
- This is a perfect world
I'm riding on an incline
I'm staring in your face
You'll photograph mine
- Perfect World
- Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a plaything
We wanna make him stay up all night
- Stay Up Late
- Well, we know where we're going
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowing
But we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out
- There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's all right, baby, it's all right
- From the age of the dinosaurs
Cars have run on gasoline
Where, where have they gone?
Now, it's nothing but flowers
- If this is paradise
I wish I had a lawnmower
- This was a Pizza Hut
Now it's all covered with daisies
- And as things fell apart
Nobody paid much attention
- Don't leave me stranded here
I can't get used to this lifestyle
