Melissa Etheridge

It's been so long since I've touched

So long since I wanted

Then you made me laugh

And my heart opened

I want you to find me charming and wise

I just want you to find me

Somewhere here inside

I barely know you

We've been sort of friends

So what if I called you and called you again

What would I tell you

Where would I begin

Please forgive me

If I don't know what to do

It's an old fire

This familiar desire

But my skin is painfully new

There's a light in my window

It shines all night long

In the morning my coffee

Is sweet but it's strong

I carefully reach out from behind these walls

I'll take a deep breath and give you a call

Hello how are you

Not much at all

Lost in this hole

That has ripped through my soul

I unlock this secret inside

What should I think

I've had too much to drink

As my mind and my body collide
