THE TOUCH

THE TOUCH THAT REACHES YOU FROM THE SOMEWHERE THAT FEELING, YOU KNOW, FROM THE LOOK THAT TAKES THE FIRE INTO YOU, DEEP INTO THE SOMEWHERE, THAT SO, REAL, FOR YOU, THAT THE LIGHTENING STRIKES THE HEART, THE THUNDER ROCKS THE SOUL, MAYBE JUST THE GLANCE BY CHANCE, MAYBE JUST THE SOUND YOU FOUND, MAYBE THE SCENT OF CONSENT, MAYBE JUST THE SCREAM OF A DREAM, THAT COMES ALIVE SOMEHOW, NOW, THAT MOVES YOU TO KNOW HOW, THAT MAKES YOU BELIEVE, NOW, THE TOUCH THAT REACHES YOU FROM THE SOMEWHERE, THE FEELING. YOU KNOW, FROM THE LOOK THT TAKES THE FIRE INTO YOU DEEP INTO THE SOMEWHERE THAT SO REAL FOR YOU!
