Singsongy Saturday: This Must Be The Place

Such pretty lyrics. And Shawn Colvin's girly version (of the Talking Heads original) is even more prettified. Take a listen:

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 okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing

Hey, I got plenty of time
Hey, you got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
Out of 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
I 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,

Hey, we drift in and out
Hey, sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I am just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you'll love me until my heart stops
Love me 'til I'm dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head
Say Goodnight
