As I tried to drift off, these lyrics kept running through my mind. They are from a Springsteen song (an under-appreciated one at that) and I also wrote them on a Valentine card a few years ago to Billy.
"So you been broken and you been hurt
Show me somebody who ain't
Yeah I know I ain't nobody's bargain
But hell with a touch-up
And a little paint...
You might need somethin' to hold onto
When all the answers they don't amount to much
Somebody that you can just talk to
And a little of that human touch.
Baby in a world without pity
Do you think what I'm askin's too much?
I just want to feel you in my arms
And share a little of that human touch."
