Jay-Jay Johanson – Automatic Lover (0:32)

“Love in space and time
There’s no more feeling
Automatic lover
Cold and unappealing
Longing to be touched
Longing for a kiss
Whisper words of love
Tell me that you miss me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me,
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me,
Nothing to caress
Not a hand to hold
I don’t need the touch
‘Cause his body’s cold
She’s programmed to receive
Automatic satisfaction
After love is done
Where’s the true reaction”

Coming to you from behind the speakers
I’m all around you
Do you feel me?
Don’t try to adjust the system
I am soul shaker”
