Talking Heads had it right

April 12, 2017

This is a perfect world

If it weren’t broken,
there’d be nothing to fix

Which seems to be, me,

Exasperated

With the laundry list

Of stuff to be fixed

If this wasn’t a perfect world

What the f#@k would we do?

Take Harp lessons from angels

See, perfect still

I don’t know how to play the Harp

“Perfect World” by  “Talking Heads”

Well, I know what it is
But I don’t know where it is
Where it is
Well, I know where it is
But I don’t know what it looks like
What it looks like
Well, I know what it looks like,
But I don’t know where she comes from
Well, I know where she comes from,
But I don’t know what’s her name.

(and she said) This is a perfect world
I’m riding on an incline
I’m staring in your face
You’ll photograph mine

And I’ve been walking, talking
Believing the things that are true
And I’ve been finding
The difference between right and wrong…good and bad
See me put things together
Put them back where they belong
Am I just like the others
Have I always been singing the same song

[CHORUS]

Somebody said that it happens all over the world
I do believe that it’s true
And the sun’s coming up
And we’re doing all the things that we should
Doesn’t everbody here believe in the things we do?

(And she said) [CHORUS]

It’s a strange situation
What’s wrong with you?
Baby…baby…baby
What you doing in my house?
And it’s all true
There’s nothing wrong with you
