I felt the sturdy hand of fate upon me
And I felt the sting of love's burning pain
And I felt the happiness of those around me
But I've never felt the touch of love's sweet hand

The tender touch of love and understanding
That makes your body tremble with true love
They say a million words could not describe it
But I've never felt the tender touch of love

Though I felt needing hands say "I love you"
But when the need is gone, they'll turn away
And leave my heart with emptiness inside it
The hands have hurt then touched the empty place

I've never felt the touch of understanding
That makes your body tremble with true love
They say a million could not describe it
But I've never felt the tender touch of love

Oh no, I've never felt the tender touch of love
