"New Feeling" as written by and David Byrne....
It's not...yesterday...anymore
I go visiting, I talk loud
I try to make myself clear
In front...of a face...that's nearer
Than it's ever been before
Not this close before
Nearer than before
Not this close before

It is...is a million...years ago
I hear music...and it sounds like bells
I feel like my head is high
I wish...I could meet...every one
Meet them all over again
Bring them up to my room
Meet them all over again
Everyone's up in my room

And now...now I'm busy...busy again
I feel like sitting down but
I'm still thinking...thinking about my friends
In my garden...moments
But now I'm speaking out
Speaking about my friends
Now I'm speaking out
Thinking about my friends

    General CommentThe "The Name of this Band is Talking Heads" version of this song is absolutely fantastic.

    General CommentMajestikmoose9, you are so right! I think it's about tripping out, like when everything is overly intense for some reason and you are kind of overwhelmed but you just go with it. I think it's also about an enthusiasm for life, but maybe it's just the way he sings it, no, it's also the lyrics. Some of the lyrics remind me of the radiohead lyrics, "Everyone, Everyone around here...Everyone is so near...It's holding on" or something like that.
