let me touch you for awhile lyrics – alison krauss

it’s been a long time coming,
as you shed a lonesome tear.
and now you’re in a wonderama,
i wonder what you’re doin’ here.

the flame no longer flickers,
you’re feeling just like a fool.
you keep starin’ into your liquor,
wonderin’ what to do.

i don’t hardly know you,
but i’d be willin’ to show you,
i know a way to make you smile!
let me touch you for awhile.

i’m gonna ruin my black mascara.
you’re drinkin whiskey when it should be wine.
you keep a-lookin’ into that mirror.
but to me you’re lookin’ really fine.

i don’t hardly know you,
but i’d be willin’ to show you,
i know a way to make you,
laugh at that cowgirl as she’s walkin’ out your door.
i know a way to make you smile.

just let me whisper things,
you’ve never heard before.
just let me touch you, baby.
just let me touch you for awhile.

i don’t hardly know you,
but i’d be willin’ to show you,
i know a way to make you smile.

it’s been a long time,
let me touch you for awhile.
