Tubeway Army

Tubeway Army were a London-based punk rock and New Wave band led by lead singer Gary Numan. They were the first band of the post-punk era to have a synthesizer-based hit, with their single "Are 'Friends' Electric?" and its parent album Replicas both topping the UK Album Chart in mid-1979. "Are 'Friends' Electric?" was also the only song released by Tubeway Army to be a hit single, making the band technically a one-hit wonder; however, the success of Gary Numan often overshadows the band, leaving them off most one-hit lists. more »

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
