ok, this is a silly post, but the other day casey asked me what my favorite song was…and i was stumped for a good part of the day, and wasn’t even sure i had a favorite song, until it hit me…it’s one that i don’t listen to that often but i think it has some of the most beautiful lyrics and is poignant without being heavy, both word and tune wise…so without further ado…

This Must be the Place (Naive Melody)
The Talking Heads

Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb – born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It’s ok I know nothing’s wrong . . nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo 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
Cover up and say goodnight . . . say goodnight

Home – is where I want to be
But I guess I’m already there
I come home – she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place
I can’t tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time
Before we were born
If someone asks, this where I’ll be . . . where I’ll be

Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo sing into my mouth
Of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I’m just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I’m dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head Ah ooh

I’m specifically big on the live version from ‘Stop Making Sense’ which I’m going to risk imprisonement to let you download
