What’s Your Theme Song? This Must Be the Place Talking Heads Mitchell Marriott Home is where I want to be Pick me up and turn me around I feel numb, burn with a weak heart 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 I got plenty of time 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 This must be the place “ T he best part of every day Is going home to my wife and children. The feeling of comfort when I get to be with them is captured in this song for me.  It’s home.    They are the foundation of why I go out into the world. The most important objective for me to accomplish is for our home to be happy, healthy and full of love. I f eel warm and good when I hold them in my arms.” —Mitchell Marriott 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 We drift in and out 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 ‘til I’m dead Eyes that light up Eyes look through you Cover up the blank spots Hit me on the head MARIN ARTS & CULTURE 25
