lyrics

Waking up, I've got no plans
Groggy from my virus scans
I'll reboot, put on some pants
I'm good to go, I'm good to dance

Going to a show alone
Better than being at home
See a girl I used to know
When we swapped circuits years ago

I call up the logs from when we used to chat
She smiles when I ask if she remembers that

It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet
'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get
I might overheat, this girl's got me beat
It feels like it's love
But it's really the internet.

She follows me in, we start to rock
Tell her my specs, I'm overclocked
But she's got style, and she's got speed
Solid state drive, flash memory

She says, "let's go back to your place"
She'll show me her modded case
Take this night in a new direction
Local area connection

She pulls me close and I try not to blue screen
Feel her hard drive hum inside her, sight unseen

It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet
'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get
I might overheat, this girl's got me beat
It feels like it's love
But it's really the internet

Complete the connection
Circuits engaged and we're online
I'm just so glad, to know that she's happy
I'm just so glad she's mine

I boot up at morning's light
Sun in the window shining bright
Haven't been this glad in a long time
To see her body next to mine
She smiles at me, and says, "you know,
Tonight we'll catch another show"
There's nowhere else I'd rather go

It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet
'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get
I'm hers 'til I rust, 'til our parts turn to dust
It's stronger, last longer than love
Because it's the internet!
