On My Television (Winston Apple)
I have spent so many nights here with you (on my television)I have fallen in love with your image as presented (on my television)And now I’m dreaming of you day and nightAnd in my dreams I hold you tightYeah, in my dreams I’m with you on my television
I know I’m living in a dream worldOut of touch with realityI’ve been selling everything I own except my DVD player (and my television)I’m gonna take all the moneyGonna give it to youThere’s just one thing I want you to doI want you to be with me on my TVOn my television
It’s long shot - we’re walking on the beachCut to a close-up of you and meYou look in my eyes and it’s plain to see how you feel about me (“I love you so”)We kissWe embraceWe make love in romantic placesIt’s a dream come true Honey, I’ve got you on my televisionOn my TVYeah, you’re on my televisionI’ve got you here with me on my TV
I’m a video junkie, Lord, I know it’s trueI’ve gotten hooked on the image of me and you (on my television)Making love over and over and over againI’ve made some back-up copies so this love of ours will never endI can get a fix day or nightI can turn you on any time I likeI can bathe in the tender glow of the love you pretend to feel for me on my TV
Now I don’t have to wait for you to appear (on my television)All I have to do is press “play” and you are here (on my television)It’s not a normal kind of love, I know it’s a little weirdStill, I keep on pressing “Play” and we appear (on my television)You know it feels so good, it’s almost like you’re hereYes, it feels so good having you here (on my television)
