"I Want To Live" as written by and David Byrne....
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 want to 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...

    General Commentstrange insights into what it means to be alive and moving forward
    damn, this song really gets me going.
    it's too good to have not made it onto an album, which im not sure it 'really' did.
    Sugar on My Tongue is great too.
