Are 'Friends' Electric?

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
 
Hhheh
Sgurd od t'nod srenniw
Krowemoh ruoy od
Stnerap ruoy yebo
 
"She takes him in her arms."
 
Thanks!
