Looking back it's funny that we never lied
That night we met when were both alone
We knew at once that what we'd want was just that night
Knew it couldn't be forever
Cause we each told of another
And then found something all 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 s****** she's a whore
But there's two people know it meant much more

Looking back was not allowed that morning so
We 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
