virtual girl, is it possible to download love
into the natural world? can we digitize the light from the stars above?
+++ although we’ve grown so fond of all your zeroes and your ones,
+++ when the lights go out, we’re still all alone..

virtual girl, you were born into a blue screen’s light,
but you shine like a pearl, were you just a grain of sand in a former life?
+++ although you aim to please and claim to cater to our needs,
+++ when the lights go out, we’re still all alone..
+++++ it’s all chemical, so predictable,
+++++ we’re malleable, and addictable
+++++ the way a dog sings when the bell rings,
+++++ I’m shopping for a soul, you could sell me anything..
+++ I know you’re not to blame, you’re just a face without a name,
+++ but when the lights go out, we’re still all alone..

if I had a wish, I would plant it like a backyard seed,
then all the people I miss would come to visit in the shade of my wishing tree,
+++ I know you’re not to blame, you’re just a face without a name,
+++ although you aim to please and claim to cater to our needs,
+++ although we’ve grown so fond of all your zeroes and your ones,
+++ but when the lights go out, we’re still all alone,
+++ when the lights go out, left me all alone,
+++ since the lights went out, I’ve been all alone, virtual girl…
