Touch
A Song by Jody O’Neil

When at the end of the day is a wall call my name
 
Wall after wall when it’s week after week keep a flame
 
We’ve not been apart as ever
Like this, will my kiss be your tether
 
To that moment we crush
That glass pane as we rush to
 
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch.
 
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch 
Touch.
 
Oh, darlin’ the world is defiled
Collapsed, in retreat, and on trial
 
If I could take back that day in March when we fought
Drop the groceries and run to the keys that you sought
 
Oh
Darling…
 
When at the end of the day is a wall call my name
 
Wall after wall when it’s week after week keep a flame
 
We’ve not been apart as ever
But, please let your kiss be my tether
 
To that moment we crush
That glass pane as we rush to
 
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch.
 
Touch
Touch
Touch
Touch 
Touch.
