Human Touch

Human Touch

The lockdowns of 2020 and associated social distancing, being forced to wear masks etc. have been hard for many people. Dehumanising in fact. People afraid to shake hands, hug and kiss each other. Afraid to go near each other let alone touch each other. This has been especially hard on older people in care homes and such who were deprived of visits from the loved ones, but has also lead to loneliness and mental anguish for many, many people. We all need human touch!

Lyrics

WE ALL NEED – HUMAN TOUCH
WE ALL NEED – HUMAN LOVE
WE ALL NEED – HUMAN TOUCH, HUMAN TOUCH

STARVED OF AFFECTION – YEAH BEEN STARVED OF LOVE
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? ORDERS FROM ABOVE?

KEPT IN YOUR BUBBLE. STOPPED FROM MEETING FRIENDS
CAN ONLY LEAD TO TROUBLE IN THE END

WE ALL NEED – HUMAN TOUCH
WE ALL NEED – HUMAN LOVE
WE ALL NEED – HUMAN TOUCH, HUMAN TOUCH

TOLD WE’RE ALL IN DANGER. TOLD WE’LL ALL BE ILL
IF WE MEET EACH OTHER IT COULD KILL

SO NOW WE’VE MASKS THAT STOP YOU TALKING
YEAH MASKS THAT SEAL YOUR KISS (SEALED WITH A KISS)
YOU KNOW IT’S GONE TO FAR NOW. HAS IT REALLY COME TO THIS?

CAN YOU TELL ME THE HUMAN COST?
SO MANY PEOPLE CONFUSED AND LOST
TIRED OF FIGHTING AN INVISIBLE FOE
INTO THE TRENCHES ONCE MORE WE GO
