lyrics

Tech support, hey can you help me?
I think my hard drive just died.
"Please describe the symptoms, sir."
It smokes and smells like all my files are fried.

Tech support, hey can you help me?
Maybe some bits still remain.
"Do you have a backup, sir?"
well just what's left within my addled brain

Oh seven days ago she took my heart and
only left behind
data from our every day:
Images of golden afternoons
and bold and blurry nights.
All the loving things we used to say
wiped away.

Tech support, hey can you tell me
how it all can be retrieved?
"You'll need a brand new one, sir."
Yeah, with a hefty installation fee.

Every night when all alone there I was
reliving the past--
data from our every day.
Love can go at any time
but I was sure the files would last.
Oh but then the drive took a holiday.

Someday
everything I save between my ears will
fade to vaporware.
Data's destined to decay.
Nothing but a hardware head
And software mind can I repair.
Tell me tech support, what do you say?
"Walk away."

Tech support, so can you help me?
Tell me how I just reboot.
"Well it will take some time, sir."
Yeah, that I won't dispute.
