1. Liking From Afar2:57
Lyrics

I don’t know if you know
what I’ve been up to
we’re all so busy all the time
and do you know I don’t know
what you’re really up to
public photos, curated lines

We say the happy birthdays every year
But otherwise don’t ever really speak
Exhibitionists and Voyeurs
Both we are
We’re strangers
Liking from afar

You came to visit just last week
buried in your smartphone apps
you photographed, you shared, all virtually
a quick hello, a hug goodbye

We say the happy birthdays every year
But otherwise don’t ever really speak
Exhibitionists and Voyeurs
Both we are
We’re strangers
Liking from afar

Look me in the eye
Share something real
Look me in the eye
and tell me how you really feel

We say the happy birthdays every year
But otherwise don’t ever really speak
Exhibitionists and Voyeurs
Both we are
We’re strangers
Liking from afar

Story

The trigger here was Facebook happy birthday wishes. We substitute superficial online interactions for meaningful in-person ones, we’ve become “exhibitionists and voyeurs, strangers, liking from afar”.
