Home is where I want to be Pick me up and turn me around I feel numb, born with a weak heart I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better Make it up as we go along Feet on the ground, head in the sky It's okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing
Oh! I got plenty of time Oh! You got light in your eyes And you're standing here beside me I love the passing of time Never for money, always for love Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight
Home, is where I want to be But I guess I'm already there I come home, she lifted up her wings I guess that this must be the place
I can't tell one from the other I find you, or you find me? There was a time before we were born If someone asks, this is where I'll be, where I'll be oh!
We drift in and out Oh! Sing into my mouth Out of all those kinds of people You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home and Share the same space for a minute or two And you love me till my heart stops Love me till I'm dead
Eyes that light up Eyes look through you Cover up the blank spots Hit me on the head I got ooh!

To piggyback Wayne's WallStreet reference, it was also played (I believe in it's entirety) at the very end of the movie.
Reason I remember,..I went out and bought it soonafter:)
Patrick from Atlanta, GaThis was not Byrne's first love song between him and an inanimate object. David wrote a lot about inanimate objects instead of traditional themes, such as love between a man and a woman.
Ken from San Mateo, CaSimple but cool song .classic David Byrne.
Brad from Long Island, NyStop Making Sense was perhaps the best live show i have ever seen. David will not even consider reuniting for a tour. Its a shame really
Bruno from Lima, PeruTalking Heads have many GREAT songs but this one is irresistible, my favourite
Greer from Rowayton, CtPossibly my favorite song ever. And speaking of movies, it was also used in the movie "Lars and The Real Girl."
Ben from Boise, IdIs it just me or is Donovan Frankenreiter's new song, "Your Heart" a total ripoff of this melody?
Dali from Zagreb, CroatiaI heard...not sure that is true...when Speaking in tongues was released...that this song is description of Byrne's feelings towards Laurie Anderson (now Lou Reeds wife) with whom (L.A.) he had short relationship at the time? Maybe it's just a gossip...because there is no mention of it in bio books of TH
Wayne from Crockett, TxThis song was also in the movie Wall Street during the decorating scene when the character Bud Fox starts making money and buys a highrise apartment. His girlfriend Darryl Hannah is an interior designer and she does the lavish decorating. This song fits the scene perfectly.
Zach Anderson from Medway, MaIn the song, the guitar and bass are playing the same thing. David Bryne said that only a naive and unprofessional musician woul do this, hence the title. Also, if you like the SCI version, check out Perpetual Groove's version. (Personal fav: 09/03/05 at the Orange Peel)
Katie from Washington, Vathis is a really sweet song, and alot of poeple covered it.
Brian from Staten Island, Nycovered by String Cheese Incident.. 12/31/05 at radio city music hall
Mike from Phoenix, AzIf you ever get a chance, listen to the re-make of this song by Shawn Colvin on her album "Cover Girl". Truly an amazing transformation. Listen to it and you'll see why this is a love song.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
