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

[Bridge]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Outro]
She said boys have power
She said boys are weird
She said boys are loud
She said boys are down
