​The Book I Read

This song is by Talking Heads and appears…

I'm writing 'bout the book I read
I have to sing about the book I read
I'm embarrassed to admit it hit the soft spot in my heart
When I found out you wrote the book I read so

Take my shoulders as they touch your arms
I'm a little cautious but I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes, mmm, oh

Oh, I'm living in the future
I feel wonderful
I'm tipping over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back
I'm running a race and you're the book I read so

Feel my fingers as they touch your arms
I'm spinning around but I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes, mmm, oh

Ooh, I'm living in the future
I feel wonderful
I'm tipping over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back
I'm running a race and you're the books I read so

Feel my fingers as they touch you arms
I'm spinning around and I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes, mmm, oh
