A new musical background for this villanelle .
I want to know the meaning of touch
if i touch you, you don't say so....
why do you hold back so much
of what you feel where there is such
possbility for where we might go?
Why do you hold back so much
when our hands and thoughts match
as do our songs and their echo
I want to know the meaning of touch,
want to slide off your shirt and caution
and look at you beside the window
why do you hold back so much?
Tonight I am tired of the watch,
wary and distant, lying low--
want to know the meaning of touch...
Let me caress your wounds -- wound me if
burn me to ashes; melt me like glass--
oh I want to know the meaning of touch
Why must you hold back so much?
