Are Friends Electric? Lyrics

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette
Now the light fades out
And I wonder 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

So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals and issues
And things that I don't understand
Like a white lie at night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you
So I open the door
It's the friend that I'd left in the hallway
Oh, 'please sit down.'
A candle lit the shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I haTe to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Mine's broke down
And now I've got no-one to love
So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts and I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I thought I missed you tonight
So it's time to leave
You see it means everything to me
