Human Touch


You and me we were the pretenders
We let it all slip away
In the end what you donít surrender
Well the world just strips away

Girl ainít no kindness in the face of strangers
Ainít gonna find no miracles here
Well you can wait on your blessings my darliní
But I got a deal for you right here

I ainít lookiní for prayers or pity
I ainít cominí íround searchiní for a crutch
I just want someone to talk to
And a little of that human touch
Just a litlle of that human touch

Ainít no mercy on the streets of this town
Ainít no bread from heavenly skies
Ainít nobody drawiní wine from this blood
Itís just you and me tonight

Tell me in a world without pity
Do you think what Iím askinís too much ?
I just want something to hold on to
And a little of that human touch
Just a little of that human touch

Oh girl that feeling of safety you prize
Well it comes with a hard hard price
You canít shut off the risk and the pain
Without losiní the love that remains
Weíre all riders on this train

So you been broken and you been hurt
Show me somebody who ainít
Yeah I know I ainít nobodyís bargain
But hell a little touchup
And a litte paint...

You might need somethiní to hold on to
When all the answers they don ít amount to much
Somebody that you can just talk to
And a little of that human touch

Baby in a world without pity
Do you think what Iím askinís too much ?
I just want to feel you in my arms
And share a little of that human touch...
