Touch
Navy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Why’d you step on stairway
Leading to the empty sky

I don’t want to follow
And you shouldn’t even try

Distance is increasing
There’s a gap between us
We should probably stop

Don’t want to see you bleeding
There’s a trouble
We should better be in touch

We should better
We should better
Better




We should better
We should better be in touch

Overall Meaning

In Navy's song "Touch," the lyrics convey a sense of distance and unease in a relationship. The opening lines, "Why'd you step on the stairway leading to the empty sky," suggest that the singer's partner has made a choice that is leading them away from each other and into an uncertain future. This image of a stairway to the sky emphasizes a feeling of being disconnected and unreachable.


The following lines, "I don't want to follow, and you shouldn't even try," reveal a hesitance on the singer's part to continue pursuing a relationship that seems doomed. There is a growing distance between them, both physically and emotionally, and the singer suggests that it would be best to stop and reassess the situation. The mention of seeing the partner bleed symbolizes the potential harm that could come from continuing on this path, urging them to avoid further pain and instead find a way to stay connected.


The repeated line "We should better be in touch" serves as a plea for communication and closeness in the face of this growing distance. It suggests that, despite the troubles and uncertainty, the singer still desires a connection with their partner. Perhaps the lyrics reflect a longing for resolution and an openness to finding a way to bridge the gap that has formed between them.


Overall, "Touch" explores the themes of distance, uncertainty, and the need for communication in a struggling relationship. It portrays a desire for connection in the midst of increasing separation and serves as a reminder of the importance of staying in touch.
