Talking Heads

Talking Heads was an American New Wave and avant-garde band formed in 1975 in New York City and active until 1991. The band comprised David Byrne (vocals and guitar), Chris Frantz (drums), Tina Weymouth (bass) and Jerry Harrison (keyboards and guitar). Auxiliary musicians also regularly made appearances in concert and on the group's albums. The New Wave style of Talking Heads combined elements of punk, art rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world music, and Americana. Frontman and songwriter David Byrne contributed whimsical, esoteric lyrics to the band's songs, and emphasized their showmanship through various multimedia projects and performances. more »

Sometimes the world has a load of questions
Seems like the world knows nothing at all
The world is near but it's out of reach
Some people touch it, but they can't hold on

She is moving to describe the world
Night must fall now-darker, darker
She has messages for everyone
Night must fall now-darker, darker
She is moving by remote control
Night must fall now-darker, darker
Hands that move her are invisible
Night must fall now-darker, darker

The world has a way of looking at people
Sometimes it seems that the world is wrong
She loves the world, and all the people in it
She shakes 'em up when she start to walk

She is only party human being
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
She defines the possibilities
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Holding on for an Eternity
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Gone, ending without finishing
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so

The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it swivels and bops
The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it bounces and hops
A world of light, she's gonna open our eyes up
A world of light, she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold it, move it, hold it
Move it, hold it, move it, hold it, move it
A world of light, she's gonna open out eyes up

She is moving to describe the world
Night must fall now-darker, darker
She has messages for everyone
Night must fall now-darker, darker
She is moving by remote control
Night must fall now-darker, darker
Hands that move her are invisible
Night must fall now-darker, darker

Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so
Night must fall now-darker, darker
She has got to move the world, to move the world, to move
the world

A world of light, she's gonna open our eyes up
A world of light, she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold it, move it, hold it
Move it, hold it, move it, hold it, move it
A world of light, she's gonna open out eyes up

Wanna define, so say so, so say so
Divine to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She, has got to move the world, to move the world, to move
the world
