Everyone is trying
To get into the bar
The name of the bar
The bar is called Heaven
The band in Heaven
They play my favorite song
Play it once again
Play it all night long

Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens
Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens

There is a party
Everyone is there
Everyone will leave
At exactly the same time
It's hard to imagine
That nothing at all
Could be so exciting
Could be so much fun

Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens
Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens

When this kiss is over
It will start again
It will not be any different
It will be exactly the same
It's hard to imagine
That nothing at all
Could be so exciting
Could be this much fun

Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens
Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens

hunh...cool, I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway, whoever sings this song, because of it's beauty, if they do it it's an accolade!
This should be better.  
Really like the drums on this.

Ok ok ... I see it is a TRIBUTE album ... Saddest version of this song ... sadly .. :)

So true. The Ice House cover blows away all covers and the original besides. So sorry that William stopped playing it. 
Not bad--it sounds like Matt Berninger is trying to sing like David Byrne, which sounds pretty good.  But I'd kind of rather hear him sing this song like Matt Berninger, and take it down an octave.
This is one of the weakest TH songs in my opinion. The National could have picked a better one for their tribute.

I'm digging this cover. And what it conveys to me the most in hearing it is how good a song this is on its own merit. Hearing it from a different artist
(done well helps imo) makes one appreciate this aspect even more I think.

At least they credit it as a tribute ...

This song is not on the TH album but Byrne and Weymouth perform it in the film.
This is sort of cool, I guess. I love both Talking Heads and The National. I didn’t like this cover when I first heard it last night but I’m finding it ‘catchier’ on second listening.

I’m curious about the other songs on this tribute album. I reeeeaaaly hope RP plays the badbadnotgood/Norah Jones collaboration that is apparently on it. BBNG is a fave of mine.
Nice to hear Matt Beminger's voice on this cover - gives Byrne's wry classic a soulful twist.
Wow, that’s Matt Berninger’s voice?! Cool. 
Wow!  I love it all.
