If we made love
Our atoms would come close to each other
But they would not touch
Because electrons repel each other
Because they have the same charge

If ya sat on my face, you wouldn't be touching my face
You'd be hovering above my face
There'd be an atomically sized gap
Between you and my tongue

Your hand and your mouth can come close to my body
Close to my crotch
But the electromagnetic repulsion
Between electrons would keep us from touching

The atoms of your body repulsing the atoms of my body would feel like touch
But no matter how tightly we held each other
We technically wouldn't be touching

You can't
Touch my
Body
I can't
Touch your
Body

In case this song isn't sad enough
Not only can we never touch
We can never know for sure if anything is real

Ya spend your whole life alone inside your brain
Ya spend your whole life alone inside your brain
Is your body real?
I do not know
Is my body real?
I do not know

I also don't know for sure if the past
Actually happened
Maybe somebody somewhere gave me a memory implant

I currently have some memories of making love
But maybe those love sessions never actually happened

You can't
Touch my
Body, and I don't even know if my body exists
I can't
Touch your
Body, and I don't even know if your body exists
You can't
Touch my
Body, and I don't even know if my body exists
I can't
Touch your
Body, and I don't even know if your body exists

Ain't this a
Sexy
Love song?
Oh yeah
Ain't this a
Sexy
Love song?
Oh yeah

None of us can ever touch, and none of us can know if anything is real
That is sexy
None of us can ever touch, and none of us can know if anything is real
That is sexy, yeah
