Lyrics

I can’t seem to face up to the facts
I’m tense and nervous and I can’t relax
I can’t sleep cause my bed’s on fire
Don’t touch me, I’m a real live wire

Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

You start a conversation, you can’t even finish it
You’re talking a lot, but you’re not saying anything
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed
Say something once, why say it again

Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

Ce que j’ai fait, ce soir la
Ce qu’elle a dit, ce soir la
Realisant, mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they’re not polite

Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
Run run run run run run run away

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

[Talking Heads]
