HUMAN TOUCH

Live 23 Jun 2000 version

You and me we were the pretenders
We let it all slip away
In the end what you don't surrender
The world just strips away

Girl ain't no kindness in the face of strangers
Ain't gonna find no miracles here
You can wait on your blessings my darlin'
But I got a deal for you right here

I ain't lookin' for prayers or pity
I ain't comin' 'round searchin' for a crutch
I just want someone to talk to
And a little of that Human Touch
Just a little of that Human Touch

Ain't no mercy on the streets of this town
Ain't no bread from ??? skies
Ain't nobody drawin' wine from this blood
It's just you and me tonight

Tell me in a world without pity
Do you think what I'm askin's 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 can't shut off the risk and the pain
Without losin' the love that remains
We're all riders on this train

So you been broken and you been hurt
Show me somebody who ain't
Yeah I know I ain't nobody's bargain
Hell a little touchup and a little paint

You might need somethin' to hold on to
When all the answers they don't amount too much
Somebody that you can just to talk to
And a little of that Human Touch

Baby in a world without pity
Do you think what I'm askin's too much?
I just want to feel you in my arms
Share a little of that Human Touch
Share a little of that Human Touch
Feel a little of that Human Touch
Feel a little of that Human Touch
Give me a little of that Human Touch and I
Give you a little of that Human Touch
Share a little of that Human Touch and I
Give you a little of that Human Touch

Heyyy now!
I say yeah!
Say say now!
Heyyy now!
I say yeah!
I say yeah!
I say yeah!
Heyyy now!
