The Girl and the Robot

  • I go mental every time you leave for work
    You never seem to know when to stop
    I never know when you'll return
    I'm in love with a robot

    In the night, call you up and
    Wanna know when you're coming home
    Don't deny me, call me back
    I'm so alone

    In the night, wait up for you
    Even though you don't want me to
    Go to bed, leave the lights on
    What's the use

    So you want to understand me
    You just see what you want to see
    There's no way I can help you out
    You don't know what it's all about

    Fell asleep again in front of MTV
    God, I'm down at the bottom
    No one's singing songs for me
    I can't wait for tomorrow

    When you're gone and rain starts falling
    I just sit here by the phone
    Don't deny me, call me back
    I'm so alone

    Oh, when you gonna come home?
    Oooooh I just gotta know
    When you gonna come home?
    Oh

    Baby I can't stand it when you go to work
    You never seem to know when to stop
    I never know when you'll return
    I'm in love with a robot

    In the night, call you up and
    Wanna know when you're coming home
    Don't deny me, call me back
    I'm so alone Writer/s: ROBIN MIRIAM CARLSSON, SVEIN BERGE, TORBJORN BRUNDTLAND
