Let Me Touch You for a While
by Alison Krauss



It's been a long time coming
As you shed a lonesome tear
And now you're in a wonderama
I wonder what you're doing here
The flame no longer flickers
You're feeling just like a fool
You keep staring into your liquor
Wondering what to do

I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you smile
Let me touch you for a while

I'm gonna ruin my black mascara
You're drinking whisky when it should be wine
You keep looking into that mirror
But to me you're looking really fine




I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you
Laugh at that cowgirl as she's walking out your door
I know a way to make you smile
Just let me whisper things you've never heard before
Just let me touch you, baby
Just let me touch you for a while

I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you smile

It's been a long time
Let me touch you for a while
