give me something I can hold with my own hands
a machine that ticks and gears I can understand
make me move from place to place
a puzzle I can chase
a new and different kind of land

I don’t want to be just trapped inside a screen
I want to be held. I want to be seen
I want you to be real
to be someone I can feel
somewhere I can rest and lean

maybe I am scared or old
don’t want to plug in or be bold
because I think it’s worth my while
to share a room with your smile
to make you something I can hold
