Out of Touch 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
     
      You find a hair on my jacket 
      And you know it's not mine 
      You look at my pillow 
      But you're wasting your time 
      Because I'm out of touch with you 
      Your smile no longer sings 
      I'm so out of touch with you 
      Now your phone forever rings 

      You see a code in my book 
      And it doesn't ring a bell 
      And this girl I am seeing  
      Says she really couldn't tell 
      Because I'm out of touch with you 
      I have seen another heart 
      I was so in love with you 
      Love and thanks I can I can't  

      I won't comb my hair for you anymore 
      I won't be in early 
      I won't be in late 
      I won't be in at all so don't sit in and wait 

      You hear a howl in the dark 
      And you hope that it is me 
      But there's no chance 
      Now there's no one else to see 
      Because I'm out of touch with you 
      Your trap will never be sprung 
      I'm so out of touch with you 
      So the final verse is sung

  • Chords
  • FROM THE ALBUM: Sweets From a Stranger.
  • Early live performances of this song were sung by Paul Carrack and it seems likely he would have sung it on the LP had he stuck around. In any case, he soon covered it - on his great 1983 LP Suburban Voodoo.
