​I Want To Live

This song is by Talking Heads and appears on the album Sand in the Vaseline: Popular Favorites (1992).

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

Mm, 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 and again and again and again
A complex spiral leads me to spin

I want to live
To see the Earth turn one more time
I wanna 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 and again and again and again
A complex spiral leads me to spin
