Please Let That Be You

Lost out in the machinery
Lifeless, slow and cold

Alone at home, alone too long
Walk around the complex
No visitors, no oxygen
Just me, no movement

Please let that be you
Knocking on my door so loud
Just like you’d do
Bringing a message or two
You know, you are my fav
And I love you

Empty, everything’s technical
Sterile and endless
Inside, I malfunction
Observe and obsess

Please let that be you
Ringing my phone right now
Like I wish you would do
Calling with some good news
You know, you are my fav And I love you

You are my fav and I love you
Stand by my side, always be true
You are my fav and I love you
I raise my right hand and swear it’s true

You are my fav, you are my fav

Please let that be you
Singing my song so nice sounding like you do
Just humming along to your tune
You know, you are my fav
And I love you
