Gary Numan

"Are ‘Friends’ Electric? (Live 1980)"

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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 just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you

[Verse 3]
So I open the door
It's the "friend" that I'd left in the hallway
"Please sit down"
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are "friends" electric?
Only mine's broke down
And there's no one to love

[Verse 4]
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 missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me

She said boys have power
She said boys are weird
She said boys are loud
She said boys are down
