Kathy's Song (Come Lie Next To Me) Lyrics

Oh my love, it's time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
And know me better than I do
I lost again, my friend
You know I'm not a saint
You knew it all this time
Still you've been waiting for me...

Oh my love, it's time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
And know me better than I do
I'm lost again my friend
You know I'm not a saint
You've known it all this time
Still you've been waiting for me...

(connecting to neural net)
Come lie next to me
Know why you and me are one
Come lie next to me
No lies, you and me are one
<i>repeat above</i>

You know I'm not a saint...

beautiful song, especially the vnv mix

An error occured.

I asked Stephan about this at the Austin, TX show on 9/11/09 and got an answer I was not expecting:

"Kathy" is his computer. The voice Kathy, was one of the text-to-speech voices in OSX 9. He played around for days with the pitch and the such to make it sound like it does. The whole concept behind the song that his computer, if anthropomorphic, would know about him than any real person -- with all of the clicks and keystrokes it's seen.

Very cool concept -- makes you think about your actions making a statement about your person and character.

The VNV remix used the OSX text-to-speech voice "Victoria" -- with the remix aptly named.

Kathy's Song is also the very first song to used a computerized voice as the chorus.

Do androids dream of electric sheep?

An error occured.

electronic BAAAAAAAAAAA fizzles out Androids are not meant to love electronic sheep. Haha :) anyways, electronic voice is awesome

An error occured.

I thought the line was "Know why you and me are one" though I could be wrong.

The song comes off as a confession and a call for love and/or friendship to me.

An error occured.

It's about being loved unconditionally. True love. His lover knows and sees his faults just as well as he does but she loves him and is a part of him despite all that.

An error occured.

He meant, do they count electric sheep.

An error occured.

He meant do they DREAM of electric sheep... refering to the book of that title by Philip K Dick, later to be made into the best movie ever, Bladerunner!

An error occured.

Did anyone notice that the voice in the VNV mix is the default text-to-speach program in Mac OSX?

Anyway love this song... It speaks of computers and their uncaring masters...

An error occured.

What is this song about?

and to dispare: every text to speech software sounds like that.

@schonenberg Nope, I have fond memories of every voice in Mac OS 8 and 9, including Kathy! My kids loved doing the text to speech back then with silly voices like Bad News. VNV uses Victoria from an early Mac X os in this. <3
