Two That Touch

TWO THAT TOUCH - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Where in the world do we begin?
When the walls that surround us start closing in 
I didn't mean to write this story but, now that it's done
We got to get it together and turn two into one 

I've cried out for love for so many nights 
In the heart of the city I have danced under the neon lights
Now my shadow is cast up against the gun 
Love makes me want to stay
Love makes me want to run 

Two that touch and fall in love
Can't get enough and then push comes to shove
Two that touch will stand and face the heat
As strangers with loving eyes hide in the streets 

They're after you and me

Where in my life did it all go so wrong?
It's like a knife at my back or a demon in the fog 
We scratch and bite to keep from a burning hell 
And then there's no one to talk to or anybody to tell 

I've cried out for mercy but, it always goes in vain 
The bullet's coming after me
Caught up in the game
I feel myself sinking so I reach out for you
Now look at what I've done
You're sinking too

Two that touch and fall in love
Can't get enough and then push comes to shove
Two that touch will stand and face the heat
As strangers with loving eyes hide in the streets

They're after you and me 

I might be dreaming this
I might be out of my mind 
I might be drowning inside your kiss
It wouldn't be the first time

I might be dangerous or
I might be nothing but a lie
I might be something of a male whore
It wouldn't be the first time 

I just wanna bake my heart in the oven of your love
I just wanna break apart from everything I've ever done

I'm tired of these one night stands 
I need a woman 
Not a girl
I need a woman

Two that touch and fall in love
Can't get enough and then push comes to shove
Two that touch will stand and face the heat
As strangers with loving eyes hide in the streets

They're after you and me
