    "The Accident" Lyrics

    David Byrne

    When you see an accident do not turn your head and look away
    I can see detectives are sifting through the wreckage we have made

    It starts with only one kiss
    It changes everything

    TV crews arrive on the scene
    They say "See the man who lost everything"
    He lies shattered like a glass on the ground
    They say "Only you can bring him around
    & set me free"

    I became delirious
    Palm trees gently swaying in the breeze
    On a desert island, I haven't seen a human being for years

    The house where we used to live
    Described by witnesses
    TV crews arrive on the scene
    & the anchorman they break down and weep
    Living proof that things are not what they seem
    It takes all these wild and wonderful things -
    To set me free
