i have the touch lyrics – peter gabriel

“i have the touch”

the time i like is the rush hour, cos i like the rush
the pushing of the people – i like it all so much
such a m*ss of motion – do not know where it goes
i move with the movement and … i have the touch

i’m waiting for ignition, i’m looking for a spark
any chance collision and i light up in the dark
there you stand before me, all that fur and all that hair
oh, do i dare … i have the touch

wanting contact
i’m wanting contact
i’m wanting contact with you
shake those hands, shake those hands
give me the thing i understand
shake those hands, shake those hands
shake those hands, shake those hands

any social occasion, it’s h*llo, how do you do
all those introductions, i never miss my cue
so before a question, so before a doubt
my hand moves out and … i have the touch

wanting contact
i’m wanting contact
i’m wanting contact with you
shake those hands, shake those hands
give me the thing i understand
shake those hands, shake those hands

pull my chin, stroke my hair, scratch my nose, hug my knees
try drink, food, cigarette, tension will not ease
i tap my fingers, fold my arms, breathe in deep, cross my legs
shrug my shoulders, stretch my back – but nothing seems
to please

i need contact
i need contact
nothing seems to please
i need contact
