"Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" as written by Neal Schon and Steve Perry....
You make me weep and wanna die,
just when you said we'd try
Lovin', touchin', squeezin', each other
When I'm alone, all by myself, your out with someone else,
Lovin', touchin', squeezin', each other

You're tearing me apart, every, every da-ay
You're tearing me apart, ohh what can I say
You're tearing me apart

It won't be long yet, 'til you're alone
When your lover, oh he hasn't come home,
'Cuz he's lovin', ooh he's touchin', he's squeezin', another

He's tearin' you apart, oh every every da-ay,
He's tearin' you apart, oh girl what can you say?
'Cuz he's lovin', touchin' another!
Now it's your turn, girl, to cry-

Naa naa na naa na na, na na na naa na, na na na naa na na, na na na na na...
(repeats)

    General Commenti think it's about a guy that breaks up with his girlfriend for cheating on him...and then she gets the same treatment from her new man, and the first guy knows it...and rubs it in her face.

    General CommentThis song is more about sour grapes. The writer has been dumped. He's depressed and angry. He tells his ex-girlfriend that he's all torn up over her. Then, because anger is the second stage of grief, he gets bitter; he "curses" her - you dumped me for someone else, but won't it be sweet when you get dumped in the same way? You'll be torn up inside, just like I am right now. And then, he becomes really childish, and starts mocking her - actually mocking her - with the old childhood, "Nyah, nyah, nyah," taunts. "You're gonna get dumped! Nyah, nyah!"

    Such a great song, but - yeah, kind of childish. ;-) But it really fits the mood of the writer, and anyone who gets hurt by being dumped for another person.

    General CommentThe first time I head that song was on TV: music used for Jamie Sale & David Pelletier's routine for pairs figure skating competition... and I agree, this song is awesome. Sexy.

    General Commentyeah, this song is pretty downright obvious. Especially if you know what it feels like to be left for someone else...
