Everything You Touch Written by Marvin Winans As Recorded by Stephanie Mills
Verse 1 I think that a song is somthing more than a beautiful melody, to tell the story of truth and reality.
I think that a song should be sung by a man, who knows the meaning of the sorrow and the meaning of true love
I think that a song should be shared among friends, then when friends are gone the melody and meaning still lingers on. It tells the good times, it tells of the bad, tells of when we're happy and when we're sad.
Chorus Everything You touch is a song. You touched my life one day (and then) all of my burdens rolled away (they rolled away) You wrote a song that even the bees could hum, everything You touch is a song, oh everything.
Verse 2 Oh You touched a bird (and that's a song) and that bird started to sing (tweet-te-te-de-de). You went in the jungle and touch a lion (and that's a song), and oh, that lion started to roar (roar). You touched a bell (and that's a song), that bell started to ring (ring-a-ling).
If you listen real close, everything thing in nature sings, oh, everything, everything You touch is a song. Most inportantly You touched my life, oh, I'm mighty gratetful You came along and touched my life. You touched my life, I didn't think I could last, but along came Jesus and He just laid His whole hand on me.
You touched my life, You touched my life, You touched my life,
and my burdens just rolled away (they rolled away) You wrote a song that the robins could sing along.
Everything You touch, everything You touch, everything You touch, everything You touch (is a song).
