about

I noticed at one point that I was texting more and more with a friend, as opposed to actually meeting up. We increasingly text, instead of talk. I noticed all the misunderstandings that occured. This is a song about communication. About connecting, meeting, sharing. In real life.

lyrics

Baby please - don’t get me wrong - I didn’t mean to write something hurtful or strong
I much prefer to talk or touch - to this high abstract plane - we communicate on
We’re just getting to know each other a bit - and it’s not so easy to guess what’s ahead
And who is sitting across from you - where is he from - what does he do

So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch
’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token
A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo

It’s not so easy for me to see - do we get along or do we disagree
And I can’t recognize yet how you feel - there’s a joker in the mix - a poker face that I can’t read
People that we like and people that we love - when the going gets tough - the tone can get rough
And I am raw with an open heart - I am strong yet sometimes I fall apart

So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch
’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token
A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo
