(Bill Anderson)
I reached out my arms and I touched you
With soft words I whispered your name
I held you right on the tip of my fingers
But that was as close as I came.
My eyes had a vision of sweet lips
Yielding beneath my command
I had your love on the tips of my fingers
But I let it slip right through my hands.
But I let it slip right through my hands.
Somebody took you when I wasn't looking
And I should have known from the start
It's a long, long way from the tip of my fingers
To the love hidden deep in your heart.
To the love hidden deep in your heart.
I had your love on the tips of my fingers
But I let it slip right through my hands.
But I let it slip right through my hands...

    When you finally find true love you have to continue with the sweet kisses and softly whispering her name. Others are looking for true love too and will move in and steal your sheep if you fail to secure the gate. Only the true one can do it. Blue eyed wonder.
