Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

How relationships - platonic and romantic - in the digital age are so terribly limited.
You’re sitting on the other side
Behind a wall, so blue and wide
Just one way to talk to you
If that gets lost, what do I do?
I can’t know if you’re okay
Or if you need me, there’s no way

I don’t know how well you are
And I’m reminded just how far
Away it is, that distant place
Where you’re residing, where you stay
I care for you, have never seen
Your face, except there on the screen

“The world is small” is what they say
And getting smaller, day by day
But once our magical machines
Give up the ghost, then this nice dream
Of friendship all over the globe
Is nothing more than distant hope

They might say the world is small
But it’s a long way after all
