"Are Friends 'Electric'?" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
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

Now the light fades out
And I'm wondering 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 S.U.'s
And things that I just don't understand
Like a white lie that night
Or a slight 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
I say "please sit down"
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Mine's broke down
And now I've no one to love

So I find out your reason
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
It meant everything to me

Mine's broke down
And now I've no one to love

Mine's broke down
And now I've no one to love
