"Touch and Go" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
all I need is what you've got
all I'll tell is what you're not
all you know is what you hear
I get this way when you come near

then I know it's gone too far
uh, oh, I touched your star
and it felt so right
just like the hush of midnight
and then you said
with me it's touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-o-o

all I need is you tonight
flying like a cement kite, yeah
in your headlock on the floor
who could ever ask for more

and I know it's gone too far
uh, oh, I touched your star
and it felt so right
just like the hush of midni-ight
and then you said
with me it's touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-o-o

all I want is you tonight
I guess that dress does fit you tight, yeah
you know that look does make me shake
it almost looks too good to fake

and I know it's gone too far
uh, oh, I touched your star-r-r
and it felt so right
just like the hush of midni-ight
then you said
with me it's touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-o-o

well it's touch and go-o-o-o
its touch and go-o-o-o

well it's touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-wo yeah

well it's touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go-o-o-o
touch and go

all I need is what you've got

    My InterpretationThe song is about Ric being completely head over heels for a chick, but she's only interested in seeing him when she's in the mood. He tells her "all I need is what you've got" and how "he's flying like a cement kite" when he's around her. It would appear they have sex - "uh oh, I touched your star" and "it felt so right" but then she says "with me, it's touch and go." And that phrase is banging around in his head as the song fades out. He wants to love her so badly, but she was only into him for the moment.

    My InterpretationHer star is obviously her vagina. She lets men touch her but that is it. Pretty simple song. A good song though, but simple.

    General CommentThis song seems to me like a lot of Ric's themes in his lyrics. Like he's in some situation with a tough guy or bully and he's just giving us his side of the situation as best he can. In this case the bully has him in a straight jacket situation yet he's being a pussy about smoking weed and that weakness satisfies Ric's sense about the situation.
