LOVE TOUCH

Writers: Holly Knight/ Mike Chapman/ Gene Black

 

Oh baby I don’t know why

But somehow I always seem to get tangled up in my pride

Oh baby we’re not that blind

Deep down inside you know this love’s worth one more try

Don’t push it all aside

 

Cause I wanna be good for you

I didn’t mean to be bad

But darlin’ I’m still the best that you ever had

Just give me a chance to let me show you how much

I wanna give you my love touch love touch

 

Why can’t I climb your walls and find somewhere to hide

Can’t I knock down your door and drag myself inside

I’ll light your candles baby and maybe I’ll light your life

I wanna feel the breathless end you come to every night

This ever changing love is pushing me too far

I feel the need to reach you right now wherever you are

These empty arms are getting stronger every day

Believe me baby they won’t let you get away

No they won’t let you get away

 

Cause I wanna be good for you

I didn’t mean to be bad

But darlin’ I’m still the best that you ever had

Just give me a chance to let me show you how much

I wanna give you my love touch love touch

You know it don’t matter who’s right who’s wrong

Think we’re gonna find out if the love is strong

Just give me a chance to win back your trust

I wanna give you my love touch love touch

Ooh you’re gonna get a ooh you’re gonna get a big love touch

Ooh you’re gonna get a ooh you’re gonna get a big love touch

Full Album Title: Storyteller The Complete Anthology/ Boxed Set/ Rod Stewart

‘I recieved a phone call one day from Rod’s management inviting me to their office to meet with Rod. I remember walking into the room and Rod was sitting at a long table in the conference room waiting for me. That was a little nerve-racking, but I came prepared because I knew I would only get one shot with him. I put a cassette on, which basically had all the parts to Love Touch, with the exception of  verse lyrics and a bridge, enough for him to say he loved it and wanted to work on it with me. I was stoked !

Although we did get together a few times to write, we just ended up hanging out and having too much fun, and I started getting frustrated. I ended up finishing the song with Mike Chapman and Gene Black, (my guitarist in Device) who came up with a guitar riff that really made the song hooky. Mike produced the track, I played keyboards, Mike Pocaro (Toto) played bass, Gene played the guitars, and I sung the backing vocals. Oddly enough, Rod asked me to sing the backups before he put down his vocal. He made a bit of a cheesy video for it with scenes from Legal Eagles, the movie, but happily it was a huge hit for him’.  –HK

  • Appeared in the movie ‘Legal Eagles with Robert Redford and Debra Winger
