Talking Heads – The Book I Read lyrics

I'm writing 'bout the
Book I read
I have to sing about the
Book I read
I'm embarassed to admit it hit the soft spot in my heart
When I found out you wrote the
Book I read so

Take my shoulders as they touch your arms I've
Got little cold chills but I feel alright the
Book I read was in your eyes oh oh

Oh... I'm living in the future.
I feel wonderful.
I'm tipping over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back I'm
Running a race and you're the book I read so

Feel my fingers as they
Touch your arms
I'm spinning around but I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes

Na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oooooh... I'm living in the future
I feel wonderful
I'm tipping over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back I'm
Running a race and you're the books I read so

Feel my fingers as they touch you arms I'm
Spinning around and I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes

Na na na na na... Na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na... Oh oh oh oh oh oh oooh..
