about

This is my version of a Talking Heads classic.
Those of you who are not familiar with the original, it is a two part song, so... after the first minute or so, there will be a short pause...wait for it...and then the second part of the song will begin.
Hope you enjoy!

lyrics

Well we know where we're goin'
But we don't know where we've been
Fnd we know what we're knowin'
But we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is uncertain
Give us time to work it out

(PAUSE)

We're on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin' that ride to nowhere
We'll take that ride

I'm feelin' okay this mornin'
And you know,
We're on the road to paradise
Here we go, here we go

We're on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin' that ride to nowhere
We'll take that ride

Maybe you wonder who you are
I don't care
Here is where time is on your side
Take you there...take you there

There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
and it's all right, baby, it's all right

And it's very far away
But it's growing day by day
And it's all right, baby, it's all right

Would you like to come along
Would you help me sing this song
And it's all right, baby, it's all right

Maybe you wonder who you are
I don't care
Here is where time is on your side
Take you there...take you there
