"Touch From Your Lust" as written by and Ben Harper....
I need to sleep but I'm too tired
I need to come down but I'm too wired
When the sun comes up I miss the moon
Cause I know tomorrow is gonna come too soon
She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from your lust

Scars on your back tell where you've been
But I'll roll like the ocean if you'll blow like the wind
Sweet Texas angel what have your blue eyes seen
I'll be your country gentleman
If you will be my Mason Dixon queen
Queen

She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from your lust

So much sweeter than all the rest
You're what lies between pain and death
Sinners and saints call you by name
If you're gonna take the praise
You're gonna have to learn to take the blame

She only wants to be wanted
But time crumbles blue roses to dust
Now I long to feel the touch from your.

    General Commenti think this is about ben being completely infatuated and in awe of a girl, yet he senses that she's a bit emotionally unstable. whatever it means it is an amazing song.

    General CommentIs any of it religious maybe?
    If it weren't for the chorus being about a she, perhaps i'd say about Jesus, or god at a stretch.

    General CommentAmazing sound to this song.

    And the guitar solo is so powerful.

    One of his best by far.
