Rod Stewart – Sometimes When We Touch lyrics

(barry mann, dan hill)

You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
Id rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
In what you say or do
Im only just beginning
To see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honestys too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all it's strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through all the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
Im just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honestys too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly
At times I understand you
And I know how hard you try
I watched while love commands you
And Ive watched love pass you by
At times I think were drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honestys too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I want to hold ya till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides
Subsides

    This is a great song about the complexity of relationships and about the Interconnectedness which as human beings we all strive for and unfortunately FAIL at all to often. It is about the recognition that although we are separate. Beings there needs to be full acceptance of our partner if the relationship is to survives. It is about the struggles that we not only with our lovers but more
    Importantly with ourselves and if we win that struggle than the relationship Survives. Dan Hill was about 19 when he wrote the song and obviously a very complex man even than, as we all are. I absolutely love the song.
