    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 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
    Now I can think for myself
    About little deals and issues
    And things that I just don't understand
    A white lie that night
    Or a sly touch at times
    I don't think it mean 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
    So it's time to leave
    You see it meant everything to me
