Touched You Today


I reached out and touched you today
Could've been led astray
With all the troubles on my brain

But you said
'Hey lonely girl, come on over here
Let me wash all that away'
Took a chance and it worked out for me today
It worked out for me today

Didn't know it could be this good
Didn't know you understood
Didn't see the surprise
Didn't know it could feel this good inside
Took a chance and it worked out for me today
It worked out for me today

I reached out and touched you today
Could've been led astray
With all the troubles
On my brain

But you said
'Hey lonely girl, come on over here
Let me wash all that away.'
Took a chance and it worked out for me today.

Didn't know love worked for me this way
Didn't know it was here to stay
Didn't know even though I prayed
Took a chance and it worked out for me today

I reached out and touched you today
Could've been led astray
With all the troubles
On my brain

But you said
'Hey lonely girl, come on over here
Let me wash all that away.'
Took a chance and it worked out for me today.

Didn't know I could let go of fear
Didn't know guilt could be sent away
Didn't know shame wasn't meant to stay
Took a chance and it worked out for me today
It worked out for me today


I reached out and touched you today
Could've been led astray
With all the troubles
On my brain

But you said
'Hey lonely girl, come on over here
Let me wash all that away.'
Took a chance and it worked out for me today.
