It’s only natural to demand
That I should free your captured hand
When we’re not seeing eye to eye
And when that thinly veiled contempt
Descends to open discontent
It’s positively justified

Casual facts, inaccurate claims
Apologies that won’t take the blame
When compromise is conquered by pride
All it takes is one touch and I’m back on your side

When sleeping with the enemy
There’s no “excuse me,” “thanks,” or “please”
It doesn’t pay to be polite
And in a twist of irony
Love is a liability
We must control our appetites

Back to back we’ve drawn our line in the sand
A house divided taking a stand
Emotionless like part of us died
All it takes is one touch and I’m back on your side

Forgiveness is a powerful word
To speak is not always to be heard
When talking leaves us unsatisfied
All it takes is one touch and I’m back on your side.
