The Doors - Touch Me




"Touch Me" is a song by the Doors from their album The Soft Parade. Written by guitarist Robby Krieger in late 1968, it is notable for its extensive usage of brass and string instruments, including a solo by featured saxophonist Curtis Amy.


It was released as a single in December 1968 and reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 (their last Top Ten hit in US) and No. 1 in the Cashbox Top 100 in early 1969 (the band's third American number-one single).


The single also did well elsewhere, peaking at No. 1 in the RPM Canadian Singles Chart and at No. 10 in the Kent Music Report in Australia. However, despite the band's commercial success the previous year, "Touch Me" did not chart in the UK Singles Chart.





Lyrics


Come on, come on, come on, come on

Now touch me, babe

Can't you see that I am not afraid?

What was that promise that you made?

Why won't you tell me what she said?

What was that promise that you made?


Now, I'm going to love you

'Til the heavens stop the rain

I'm going to love you

'Til the stars fall from the sky

For you and I


Come on, come on, come on, come on

Now touch me, babe

Can't you see that I am not afraid?

What was that promise that you made?

Why won't you tell me what she said?

What was that promise that you made?


Now, I'm going to love you

'Til the heavens stop the rain

I'm going to love you

'Til the stars fall from the sky

For you and I


I'm going to love you

'Til the heavens stop the rain

I'm going to love you

'Til the stars fall from the sky

For you and I


Stronger than dirt
