I Have the Touch (Robbie Robertson Mix -Phenomenon film) Lyrics - Peter Gabriel



Review The Song (1)


The time I like is the rush hour, cos I like the rush
The pushing of the people, I like it all so much
Such a mass of motion, do not know where it goes
I move with the movement and ... I have the touch

I'm waiting for ignition, I'm looking for a spark
Any chance collision, and I light up in the dark
There you stand before me, all that fur and all that hair
Oh, do I dare ... I have the touch

Wanting contact
I'm wanting contact
I'm wanting contact with you
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Give me the thing I understand
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Shake those hands, shake those hands

Any social occasion, it's hello, how do you do
All those introductions, I never miss my cue
So before a question, so before a doubt
My hand moves out and ... I have the touch

Your actions talk as a naked man, with nothing up their sleeve
Words you use can devastate, can decoy, and deceive
Talk to me with flesh and blood, I trust what I receive
The moment I believe is … I have the touch

Wanting contact
I'm wanting contact
I'm wanting contact with you
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Give me the thing I understand
Shake those hands, shake those hands

Pull my chin, stroke my hair, scratch my nose, hug my knees
Try drink, food, cigarette, tension will not ease
I tap my fingers, fold my arms, breathe in deep, cross my legs
Shrug my shoulders, stretch my back - but nothing seems
to please

I need contact
I need contact
Nothing seems to please
I need contact

Peter Gabriel - I Have The Touch, My Interpretation Of The Song | Reviewer: Alistair Martin | 10/5/2004

Great song, i empathize with the character, my interpretation of song is that, this individual "has the touch" and enjoys contact with others.
"the touch" could be a number of things, my interpretation is that it is some kind of power/ability, that others respond to & that the song is about a man that enjoys using his ability, as if he gets high from it, "nothing seems to please" "i need contact"

Id be interested to hear what others think its all about, feel free to email me.
