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
