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

And now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing in a room like this
And there's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

So now I'm alone
And now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that 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 candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke 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
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me

Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing in a room like this
It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love
