"Touch Me" as written by and Mike/fenwick Hurst....
Yeah!

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon 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 gonna love you
Till the heavens stop the rain.
I'm gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky
For you and I.

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon now
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.

I'm gonna love you
Till the heavens stop the rain.
I'm gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky
For you and I.
I'm gonna love you
Till the heavens stop the rain.
I'm gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky.
For you and I.

Stronger than dirt.

    General CommentI think it is just a great tune. Plus, Curtis Amy laid down a smoking sax solo. Fucking relax and enjoy it.

    General CommentWell, I love that end bit, "Stronger than dirt." shows they had a sense of humor. It is because those last four notes were the same as the four notes from a commercial jingle: Ajax laundry detergent--they showed a white knight riding a white horse, touching people's clothes with his lance, and they become pure white--unless it was the ad for Ajax color--then a white outfit became multi-colored. I wanted to see him touch a bride's dress and for her to clout him over the head! hahha.

    "Stronger than Dirt!" But it works for a love song, too, I guess.

    General CommentAt the end of the song, Morrison can be heard saying, "Stronger than dirt," which was the slogan of the Ajax household cleaning company, because the last four notes of "Touch Me" were the same as those in an Ajax commercial and as a mocking criticism of Krieger, Densmore, and Manzarek wanting to accept an offer from Buick to use "Light My Fire" in a commercial. The deal was aborted when Morrison opposed. This vocal was omitted on the single version which was a different mix.

    General Comment"Stronger than dirt" was added because the boys, unbeknownst to Jim, had already gone ahead with a Buick campaign using "Light My Fire" as the song for their ad -

    "Come on, Buick, light my fire".

    The ad was filmed and may have been shown in Florida a few times but when Jim found out about it he hit the roof, and called up Buick himself, stating over the phone that if they went ahead with the campaign he would get a buick and beat the crap out it with a sledgehammer on national television!

    General CommentI'm a 16 year old door fan, and this is my favorite song. I have no idea why nobody is commenting on it. I thought that by now even my grandparents's comment would be up by now! C'mon people, the stars should "fall from the sky" before a 16 year old beats you to this song!
