It's OK, I understand
Our conversation has come to an end
It's getting late, It's been a lot of fun
It's been real but now you've got to run

They're safe with me, they'll never see the light
Memories we shared become corrupt
Free up some space erase the ghost of love

I feel used you seem so tired
You know where I sleep, check in once and awhile
What was once new has fallen out of style
Time to upgrade to the latest model
Thinner, faster, smarter, smaller
