We would talk

Way back when

We were special

Now we’re them

Text me if you think that’s true

And what your advice is


You got yours

I got mine

We’re plugged in

All the time

It’s fine

We’re left to our own devices


At the club

It’s a scene

We sit gazing

At little screens

Splendid isolation

Comes with high prices


You got yours

I got mine

We’re plugged in

All the time

On line

We’re left to our own devices



Wavin’ my arms, tryin’ to get a reaction

You press Send after a while

Flashin’ me, that devil smile

What’s this picture, on my phone?

Oh baby – let’s get goin’


Honey I like your plan

To crack our digital crisis

Your photo very clearly shows

You’ve got some other devices


Let it ring

We’re not done

Makin’ noise like the blast of a shotgun

Real good time

We’re cookin’ up our own surprises

Back live

We’re playin’ with our other devices

Yeah, Devices

Playin’ with those love devices


Playin’ with those other devices


Playin with those love devices
