Real Life Thing lyrics

Can we live the real life thing?

I've got a picture of you as the background on my computer
And just like you it never goes to sleep
My cellphone ringer is set to your recorded laughter
When anyone calls I let it ring and ring and ring
You got a way with words but words aren't all I need
I wanna hold your hand and feel you standing next to me

(x2)
Deteriorating, pixelated love life
Zooming away from generation uptight
That we were late but can we live the real life thing
Hey, I need the real life thing

What good is the view from the background of my computer?
What is the use if you ain't here with me?
My cellphone ringer sings but honey I don't answer
I'm too busy out searching for the real thing
You got a way with words but words aren't all I need
I wanna hold your hand and feel you standing next to me

(x2)
Deteriorating, pixelated love life
Zooming away from generation uptight
That we were late but can we live the real life thing
Hey, I need the real life thing
I need the real life thing
I need the real life thing
I need the real life
