"Since I Held You" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
I really love the way you talk
I don't mind sayin' so
And oh, I love it when you dance
So silky slow
Oh, baby please don't go

I know you refuse to get involved
You won't help me out none
You run around like a paperdoll
Pretending it's fun
Oh, baby please don't run

Somethin' in the night, just don't sit right
Looks like I'm gonna be up all night, yeah

It's been such a long time
Since I held you
I said, it's been such a long time
Since I held you
Oh oh, such a long time
Since I held you

I won't forget the way you said
It doesn't bother you much
Tutor impressions in your head
Just before the last touch
That meant so much

Somethin' in the night, just don't sit right
Looks like I'm gonna be up all night, yeah

It's been such a long time
Since I held you
I said it's been such a long time
Since I held you
Oh oh, such a long time
Since I held you

It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
Such a long time

Well, it's been a long, long time
I said, it's been a long, long time
It's been a long time
Since I held you
Oh oh, such a long time
Since I held you

    General CommentI feel this is a concept album...

    At this point our guy in question has lost the lovely lady from "Let's Go" and is now sitting up all night thinking about her, sad because it's been awhile since he held her. He's thinking of all the things that made him happy to be with her.

    Maybe he was feeling love, and she was just feeling lust for him, but his inexperience keeps him from figuring that out from other subtle signs, leading him to heartbreak and despair.
