Stiff Little Fingers – Touch And Go lyrics

Looking back it's funny that we never lied
That night we met when we were both alone

We knew at once that what we'd want was just that night

Knew it couldn't be forever, cos we each told of another

And then found something al our own


We both agreed we felt the need that goes skin deep

We said up front that's all we'd want and so

We took the love that felt so good and had to be

Just a case of touch and go

When we'd got that usual block out of the way

We both relaxed, sat back and felt so sure

Saw eye to eye and looked each other in the face
Hours we talked with warmth and laughter

And we still could talk more after

In the dark up on the seventh floor


Some might joke I came and went, and snigger she's a whore

But there's two people know it meant much more

Looking back was not allowed that morning so
We each stuck by what we'd said

Rose and left without regret

But for a moment it was touch and go

We both agreed we felt the need to touch and go

But oh, you know, it was touch and go
