Jenny Owen Youngs – Voice On Tape lyrics

[Spoken: Regina Spektor]
Jenny
Um I don't know if that's you, but that didn't sound like you.
But you know, it's a funny world, where machines can replace people.
Whoever that was,
Um
Tell Jenny that Regina called her,
And P. S.
I can't believe what he did.

[Sung: Jenny Owen Youngs]
All the evidence points in one direction
Since I don't need you physically around
I've got your voice on tape
I've got your words in me
I don't want anything else
I don't want anyone else

Thing that I had but I dropped
All that I had but I dropped

I want you back and forth
I want you up and down
I want you inside out

[Spoken]
I was hoping you could keep me company for the ride home,
But it's okay if you're sleeping.
Um

[Sung]
I've got your voice on tape
I've got your words in me
I don't want anything else
I don't want anyone else

And you say that I don't have this down
I've been practicing out loud

[Spoken]
I just wanted to call to say hi,
And um
I think I might bring Marissa and Tracy up to Topeka.
That's it.

[Sung]
I want you back and forth
I want you up and down

I want you back and forth
(I've got your voice on tape)
I want you up and down
(I've got your words in me)

I want you back and forth
(Thing that I had but I dropped)

I don't want anyone
I don't need anyone else
(All that I had but I dropped)

I've got your voice on tape
I've got your words in me

I've got your voice on tape
(I've got your words in me)
I've got your words in me
(I've got your voice on tape)

I've got your voice on tape
(I've got your words in me)
I've got your words in me
(I've got your voice on tape)

(I don't want anything else)
(I don't need anyone else)

All the evidence points in one direction
Since I don't need you physically around
