TOUCH AND GO
Melissa Etheridge


In a room full of silver shadows
A customary kiss goodnight
And it slips through your tightened shoulders
It reaches your heart and dies

And the sadness is bound to kill me
But I'm too far away to care
And I'd just like to know if you will
Oh could I even get there

Oh
Back to the touch and go
When not a soul could know
When your lovin' was slow
We lived every night for the touch and go

Now there's no one in the night to blame you
No one in your glasses of wine
I never won I only tamed you
Foolishly I called you mine
And your pacing in your cage every morning
And you rattle your chains every night
And you stare past the bars never knowing
With nothing left to put up a fight

Oh
Then we would touch and go
When not a soul could know
Oh your lovin' was slow
And we lived every night for the touch
Oh I remember
The touch and go
When not a soul could know
Oh your lovin' was slow
We lived every night for the touch and go

Are you still breathing

Tonight the scent is in the city
Tonight it's on the radio
Tonight I'll leave the key beside the door
Tonight I'm gonna touch and go

Touch and go
