"The Touch of Your Hand"

THE TOUCH OF YOUR HAND Lyrics by Danny Vaughn
Did I lose you in the moment?
Did I let it slip away?
Confused by words I stammered out
And even more by things I didn't say
I'm surrounded by your echo
And the image of your face
The words are coming to me now
Many hours too late
Love- is what I meant to say
Love

I don't want to keep you up
I don't want to make you weary
But feel that if I let you go you'll vanish on the wind
I don't want to say good night
Couldn't we just talk forever?
'Cause I never want to face this world without
The touch of your hand

Knowing that you're out there
It's bitter and it's sweet
Makes me want to throw this burden down
Shattered at your feet
And I'm burning like a penitent
In a soft, familiar flame
Twisting like a leaf in your hurricane
Love- is all I want to say
Love

I don't want to keep you up
I don't want to make you weary
But feel that if I let you go you'll vanish on the wind
I don't want to say good night
Couldn't we just talk forever?
'Cause I never want to face this world without
The touch of your hand

My soul embittered
It's been burned and it's been maimed
Recoiling at the slightest touch
Of anybody's pain
If I could give up all this torment
Well, what then would I do?
Is the only way to keep from sinking
To drown myself in you?

I don't want to keep you up
I don't want to make you weary
But I feel that if I let you go you'll vanish on the wind
I don't want to say good night
Couldn't we just talk forever?
'Cause I never
No, I never
No, I never want to face this world
Without the touch of your hand
The touch of your hand
