I have been wanting you for so long
I have been wanting you for so long (so long)

I been down
I been down a different road
I been out
I have been out of control

Girl, when you touch me back
Yeah, yeah
I get my senses back
Yeah
Girl, when you touch me back
Yeah, yeah
I get my senses back
Yeah

So now I'm feeling alright
Cause nothin' feels like
When you're holdin' on
Said, I feel alright
Cause nothing feels like
When you're holdin'
When you're holdin'
I'm feelin' alright
Cuz nothing feels like
When you're holdin' on
When you're holdin' on

I wanna treat you like you wanna be treated (yeah)
I wanna see you as you wanna be seen (yeah)

I been down
I been down a different road
I been out
I have been out of control

Girl, when you touch me back (yeah)
I get my senses back (yeah)
Girl, when you touch me back (yeah)
I get my senses back (yeah)
Oohh

So now I'm feeling alright
'Cause nothing feels like
When you're holdin' on
Said, I feel alright
Cause nothin' feels like
When you're holdin'
When you're holdin' on
Said
I feel alright
Cause nothing feels right
When you're holdin'
When you're holdin' on
I feel alright
Cause nothin' feels right
When you're holdin' on
When you're holdin' on

Let yourself go,
Let yourself go

    He is in love and finds comfort in his girls touch. He was down a wrong road, could have been a bad relationship, or a bad situation in life, but he is seeing clearly now, and just wants his life to even out, and his girl to love him back.
