Are Friends Electric - Gary Numan

Its cold outside
And the paints peeling off of my walls
Theres a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And Im wondering what Im doing in a room like this
Theres a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

So now Im alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And *issues*
And things that I just dont understand
Like a white lie that night
Or a slight touch at times
I dont think it meant anything to you

So I open the door
Its the `friend that Id left in the hallway
Please sit down
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But, are `friends electric?
Mines broke down
And now Ive no one to love

So I find out your reason
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And Im lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
So its time to leave
You see this means everything to me
