Touch

I’ve lost track of all these nights
I’ve sat here on my own
All the time that I’ve spent waiting
For somebody to come home
To hold me close
To keep me warm

And just a little touch
Would go such a long way

I’ve lost count of all the days
I’ve struggled to get by
All the time that I’ve spent wishing
That I was not so shy
That I could love
That I could feel

And just a little touch
Would go such a long way

And now the winter nights are drawing in
I really need that warmth
The warmth of another soul
To hold me close
To hold me tight
And keep me warm throughout these nights

And just a little touch
would go such a long way now

I need someone to hold me
I need someone to love me
And just a little touch
Would go such a long way

Notes

This is of the same vintage as Another Day, having originally been recorded in 1987. I used the same tools to digitise it but this one took a little more work.

The tracking was a bit off so I had to speed it up a tad after denoising it. Then I decided that it was way too long in its original form having an overlong intro and middle section that didn’t really add anything – instrumental breaks in acoustic numbers aren’t always the best idea.

So, it has been slashed from a monstrous 4m 57s down to a much more manageable and (dare I say listenable) 3m 36s. It also had to be brightened up a bit as the original recording was quite muddy.
