Back to Are 'Friends' Electric? lyrics

Are Friends Electric?

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, gray hat, smoking a cigarette

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Now the light fades out
And I'm only wondering what I'm doing in a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals and S.U.'s
And things that I just don't understand

Like a white lie that night
Or a slight touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh

So I open the door
It's the friend that I'd left in the hallway
"Please sit down"
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

You know I hate to ask
(But are friends electric?)
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no one to love

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

So I find out your reason
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts and I'm lonely
And I should never have tried

And I missed you tonight
So it's time to leave
You see this means everything to me

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh
