Talking Heads – I Want To Live lyrics

I want to live, to feel a face
That isn't there
I want to live
I roll over and you're not there
I'm only standing on the shore

I had some friends but I want more mmmmm

I see the future and it's all mine
Want to be perfect, I'm taking my time
I'll try not to act like I'm so far away
I try to be right in whatever I say
Deeper feelings recur again & again & again & again
A complex spiral leads me to spin...

I want to live
To see the earth turn one more time
I wanna live
To feel a hand that isn't mine
I'm only standing on the shore
I had some fun but I want more
I'll try not to act like I'm so far away
I try to be right in whatever I say
Deeper feelings recur again & again & again & again
A complex spiral leads me to spin...

Mmmm...
