About the song
With the advent of the internet and sites such as Soundclick and Myspace there are many more opportunities for us to 'meet' and 'get to know' people from all over the planet. In this new world we can be whatever we want to be and can make others' profiles into almost anything we desire. This is an alien environment we have not evolved to exist in; I imagine it is something like heaven: a disembodied, addictive, sometimes gratifying but ultimately frustrating place to live.

Over Chameleon drum loops I've added acoustic bass, cellos and violins, piano, Sonic Stop guitar loops, Fender Rhodes and ethereal effects. Two acoustic guitars, lots of harmonies and a single lead vocal complete this ballad which I finished in late November 2006.
Lyrics
Intro
I love how you write, your words have touched my heart;
Searched an age, found your page, that's how friendships start now...

Are you there...?

Verse 1
Felt so good to see your mail, what's new? How's the family?
Love that costume, is that really you? Well here's one of me.
How can it be Spring and Autumn simultaneously?
Things are blossoming and dying all around us, all the time it seems...

Verse 2
I nudge you though you're sleeping almost half a world away;
I need to talk but you're in night and I'm in day.
What's missing from my life to make me feel the way I do?
As much as this can be love... I love you

Are you there...? Are you there...?

Middle 8a
Your home and mine are much the same though poles apart;
Someday I'll tell you all about her, open up my heart.
I said 'someday' well it's here, came so quickly; where to start?
Explicitly? Ok let's see... now you can really get to know me...

Vocal/vibes solo
pa da pa pa etc

Middle 8b
We're Gods creating in the image of all we desire:
To a lo-fi profile, add soul and flesh, make love that burns like fire.
Then flatter to deceive ourselves pretend we played no part;
It's no surprise we fall for what we make, that was our best mistake...

Verse 3
Your stories grab my heart each morning, pull me out of bed.
Today you blow our world apart... 'We're in too deep, the things we said'.
Reality and fantasy must forever strangers be;
Today the dream must end... goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend...

(Are you there...?)

Verse 4
I loved how we wrote, your words have touched my heart;
Searched an age, found your page, that's how friends are made now...

Are you there...?
Are you there...?
