Fear of Music (1979)[edit]

  • I will find a city, find myself a city to live in.
    • Cities
  • 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.
    • Heaven

Remain in Light (1980)[edit]

  • 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?"

Speaking in Tongues (1983)[edit]

  • It's always showtime
    Here at the edge of the stage
    • Girlfriend Is Better
  • Stop making sense.
    • Girlfriend Is Better
  • 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

Little Creatures (1985)[edit]

  • 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

Naked (1988)[edit]

  • From the age of the dinosaurs
    Cars have run on gasoline
    Where, where have they gone?
    Now, it's nothing but flowers
