And She Was - Talking Heads

And she was lying in the grass And she could hear the highway breathing And she could see a nearby factory She's making sure she is not dreaming See the lights of a neighbor's house Now she's starting to rise Take a minute to concentrate And she opens up her eyes

CHORUS: The world was moving and she was right there with it (and she was) The world was moving she was floating above it (and she was) and she was

And she was drifting through the backyard And she was taking off her dress And she was moving very slowly Rising up above the earth Moving into the universe Drifting this way and that Not touching ground at all Up above the yard


She was glad about it... no doubt about it She isn't sure where she's gone No time to think about what to tell them No time to think about what she's done And she was

And she was looking at herself And things were looking like a movie She had a pleasant elevation She's moving out in all directions


Joining the world of missing persons (and she was) Missing enough to feel alright (and she was)
