SLOSHING AROUND

Written by: David Byrne

Where and how a mind that I have met,
A mind with rainy thoughts in winter set,
Brings spring time to my darkest night and more,
Smiling through its testaments of lore,

Sloshing through the puddles as I seek,
A glimpse into her heart I want to sneak,
Delicate like petals on the ground,
A precious gentle soul that I have found,

Where in all this music can I feel,
Vibrations of a kind that seems so real,
Like ripples in the puddles underfoot,
Or sounds like songs I hear along my route,

Amazing oh, is she so far away,
Where and how, I’d like to greet one day.
