Touch Me

Here it is!!!  I know I’ve been delaying somewhat, but here is the first single from my forthcoming album Quiet Storm.  The song is called “Touch Me”, and I sincerely hope you enjoy it!

Download it here: Sharebee (includes zshare, Badongo, RapidShare etc.)  Let me know if you want me to upload the mp3 to any specific servers and I can do that for y’all 🙂

Stream it on my Myspace now, along with other selected tracks from the upcoming album!

A little bit about the song:  “Touch Me” is one of the last songs I wrote for the album, and is sorta a ‘part 2’ to one of the very first songs I ever did, called “Reach Out” (see here).  It’s an uptempo that perhaps breaks away somewhat from the overarching nocturnal feel of Quiet Storm as an album, but I liked the R&B beat that you could chill to, drive to or imagine playing in a club.  It’s a multipurpose song!  The beat is sampled from Cassie’s “Nobody But You”, featuring The-Dream, who also produced the track, so I have them to thank for the inspiration; I looped a portion of the beat and then added my own production and vocals over the top.  It’s not a lyrically deep song, being basically about feeling attracted to somebody, and encouraging them to step to you and not to be intimidated.  I thought that by keeping it light, it was a perfect introduction to the album without being too intense straight away.  I really hope that you enjoy it, and please pass it on to your friends!

Touch Me
(A. Smith, sample of “Nobody But You” by C.Ventura / T. Nash / C. Stewart)

reach out and…. touch me

you act like i’m invisible

but i saw your eye as i walked by

let me let you know that it’s alright

i’m feeling you likewise

there’s nothing wrong with appreciation

but i want a lil’ communication

let me know how you’re feeling

is this something you’d be pursuing

because it’s alright

it’s alright

it’s alright

you can touch me

it’s alright

it’s alright

i don’t mind

here, there, wherever

coz i’m looking fly and i’m feeling fine

so don’t be shy come on over here

show me that you know how to touch me

touch me, ay ay, touch me

touch me, ay ay, touch me

touch me, ay ay, touch me

touch me, ay ay, touch me

sometimes i get a little desolate

all alone checking my phone

waiting for your call or your message

i don’t want to stay at home

when there’s so many places we could go

the night is young and the sun’s still up

let me take you on a tour

grab the wheel from ya

and we can navigate a whole new course because

because it’s alright

it’s alright

it’s alright

you can touch me

it’s alright

it’s alright

i don’t mind

you can touch me

here, there, wherever

coz i’m looking fly and i’m feeling fine

so don’t be shy come on over here

show me that you know how to touch me

touch me

show that you can touch me

i know that you can do it

now i want you to prove it

because i don’t wanna look back

in the future on now

and think that we missed out

i’m not one to miss out

so let’s spill the tea

i’m feelin you you’re feelin me

not everything’s supposed to be

so serious so please feel free

i’m making it your challenge

to touch me (do it right now)

touch me, ay ay, touch me (do it right now)

touch me, ay ay, touch me (do it right now)

touch me, ay ay, touch me (do it right now)

because it’s alright

here, there, wherever

coz i’m looking fly and i’m feeling fine

so don’t be shy come on over here

show me that you know how to touch me

reach out and reach out and reach out and touch me

reach out and reach out and reach out and do it right now

reach out and reach out and reach out and touch me

  4. hey again,

    I feel like I’m beginning to be that guy just randomly, trolling through your blog, lol.

    Anywho, I really do like this song. Getting Mariah “Memoirs” vibe….maybe coz of the Dream sample.

    I have a proposal for you ….I really believe in your songwriting skill… would you allow me to cover this song if you wouldn’t mind sending me the track (kchikumbu@gmail.com). I just wanna give it a shot…you can hear one of my tracks here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir11Q4CX8jY

    If you’re interested let me know. Of course you get full credit for the writing and teh track…I just want to try singing it. I really believe that you should consider writing for other people.
