[Intro: C]



    


C

The time I like is the rush hour, 'cause I like the rush 
The pushing of the people, I like it all so much 
Such a mass of motion, do not know where it goes 
Caad9                        G                  C
I move with the movement and - I have the touch

C

I'm waiting for ignition, I'm looking for a spark 
Any chance collision and I light up in the dark 
There you stand before me, all that fur and all that hair 
Csus4          G                  C
Oh, do I dare - I have the touch 



    

{Refrain}
F#         C

Only, only wanting contact 
F#             C

I'm only, only wanting contact 
F#             C

I'm only, only wanting contact
         G             Bm                       G            
With you - shake those hands, shake those hands 
F#                             G

Give me the thing I understand 
Bm                                   G                
Shake those hands, shake those hands 
              C

Shake hands, shake hands 

C

Any social occasion, it's hello, how do you do 
All those introductions, I never miss my cue 
So before a question, so before a doubt 
Csus4                  G                 C
My hand moves out and - I have the touch 

{Refrain}

C        G                                 C

Pull my chin, stroke my hair, scratch my nose, hug my knees 
F#                          A

Try drink, food, cigarette, tension will not ease 
            G                              C

I tap my fingers, fold my arms, breathe in deep, cross my legs 
            G                         A

Shrug my shoulders, stretch my back, but nothing seems to please 


G             Bm
I need contact 
G             Bm
I need contact 
Nothing seems to please 
G             Bm
I need contact
G             Bm
I need contact
G             Bm
I need contact

The time I like is the rush hour, 'cause I like the rush
The pushing of the people, I like it all so much
Such a mass of motion, do not know where it goes
I move with the movement and, I have the touch

I'm waiting for ignition, I'm looking for a spark
Any chance collision and I light up in the dark
There you stand before me, all that fur and all that hair
Oh, do I dare, I have the touch

Wanting contact
I'm wanting contact
I'm wanting contact with you
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Give me the thing I understand
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Shake those hands, shake those hands

Any social occasion, it's hello, how do you do
All those introductions, I never miss my cue
So before a question, so before a doubt
My hand moves out and, I have the touch

Wanting contact
I'm wanting contact
I'm wanting contact with you
Shake those hands, shake those hands
Give me the thing I understand
Shake those hands, shake those hands

Pull my chin, stroke my hair, scratch my nose, hug my knees
Try drink, food, cigarette, tension will not ease
I tap my fingers, fold my arms, breathe in deep, cross my legs
Shrug my shoulders, stretch my back - but nothing seems to please

I need contact
I need contact
Nothing seems to please
I need contact
