Friends, Music and Lyrics

Sometimes I wonder why some songs are just so accurate......

....and why some people say that music has no feeling or relevance. I really couldn't live without music.

------------

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 *issues*
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
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 this means everything to me

(Are Friends Electric? - Gary Numan)

Re: Random
I certainly DO. I also like the Republica and Moloko covers of said song on said album too. Actually I like pretty much that entire album.

It's always hit and miss with 'Tribute' albums and I seem to have amassed a fair few over the years (some of which are incredibly strange... for instance Front Line Assembly with Tiffany covering a U2 track!!!!???

I have a very good Marilyn Manson covers CD and the Nouvelle Vague 'New Wave' covers CD is currently up there amongst my most listened to CDs (but then again I've always been a sucker for French girls :p)
