I’ve listened to this song 20 times over the last month…

~

Since my colleague Anna Brones tipped me off to it. I love it…

…and it wasn’t ’til yesterday that I realized the words were…actually saying something…and that something pretty well epitomized one kind of relationship I don’t want: the housewife role without a life who views me as entertainment and property. What’s attractive? What’s lasting? Someone with joie de vivre, raison d’etre…a mission and vision and reason to wake up in the morning independent, not co-dependent of the other half of the relationship.

What’s hot? A relationship of equals. A spacious match.

Röyksopp ft. Robyn – The Girl and the Robot.

I go mental every time you leave for work
You never seem to know when to stop
I never know when you’ll return
I’m in love with a robot

In the night, call you up and
Wanna know when you’re coming home
don’t deny me, call me back
I’m so alone

In the night, wait up for you
Even though you don’t want me to
Go to bed, leave the lights on
what’s the use

So you want to understand me
You just see what you want to see
there’s no way I can help you out
You don’t know what it’s all about

Fell asleep again in front of MTV
God, I’m down at the bottom
No one’s singing songs for me
I can’t wait for tomorrow

When you’re gone and rain starts falling
I just sit here by the phone
don’t deny me, call me back
I’m so alone

Oh, when you gonna come home?
Oooooh I just gotta know
When you gonna come home?
Oh

Baby I can’t stand it when you go to work
You never seem to know when to stop
I never know when you’ll return
I’m in love with a robot

In the night, call you up and
Wanna know when you’re coming home
don’t deny me, call me back
I’m so alone

Still? Great song. Listening to it again:
