"Are 'Friends' Electric? 2.0"

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat gray hair 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
And I can think for myself
About little deals and issues
And things I just don't understand
Like a white line 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
Please sit down
A candle-lit shadow on the wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But, are friends electric?
Only, mine's broken down
And now I've 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 missed you tonight
So it's time to leave
You see this meant everything to me

Sgurd od t'nod srenniw
Krowemoh ruoy od
Stnerap rouy yebo

She takes him in her arms
