Best starting lyrics to a song ever (part 2)

Back on 18 November, I hypothesised that the best starting lyrics to a song had to be from one of the following:

– Daydream Believer (The Monkees)
– Good Vibrations (The Beachboys)
– Stay This Way (The Brand New Heavies).

In true "Best Album in the World, Ever (part 2)" style, I’ve come up with another hot contender. The following intro is from Talking Heads’ And She Was:

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 neighbour’s house
Now she’s starting to rise
Take a minute to concentrate
And she opens up her eyes
