I don't know why this song makes me so mad, but it does

I know. There's a lot more out there, especially right now, that deserves my rage. And mostly, there's enough to go around. But this song just makes me so angry. Maybe it's because I dated a cheesy bullshitter for so many years, and maybe it's because I am forced to work with another bullshitter who I think reminds me of him. And, I'm sort of a low-bullshit-tolerance type of gal. Anyway, here ya go. It's called "Sometimes When We Touch," it's by Dan Hill, and I have heard it maybe 10 too many times this week.
You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
On what you say or do?
I'm only just beginning to see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly

At times I understand you
And I know how hard you've tried
I've watched while love commands you
And I've watched love pass you by

At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again
