I still hear your voice
When you sleep next to me
I still feel your touch
In my dreams
Forgive me my weakness
But I don't know why
Without you it's hard to survive

Cause everytime we touch
I get this feeling
And everytime we kiss
I swear I could fly
Can't you feel my heart beat fast
I want this to last
Need you by my side

Cause everytime we touch
I feel the static
And everytime we kiss
I reach for the sky
Can't you hear my heart beat so
I can't let you go
Want you in my life

Your arms are my castle
Your heart is my sky
They wipe away tears that I cry
The good and the bad times
We've been through them all
You make me rise when I fall

Cause everytime we touch
I get this feeling
And everytime we kiss
I swear I could fly
Can't you feel my heart beat fast
I want this to last
Need you by my side

Cause everytime we touch
I feel the static
And everytime we kiss
I reach for the sky
Can't you hear my heart beat so
I can't let you go
Want you in my life

Cause everytime we touch
I get this feeling
And everytime we kiss
I swear I could fly
Can't you feel my heart beat fast
I want this to last
Need you by my side

From wikipedia.org:

The music video for "Everytime We Touch" features Natalie Horler. Horler is seen outside a library looking at a picture of a man. She then walks into the library where the same man is the librarian. She starts to dance on a table, which makes the man angry. Horler then takes off the man's glasses and spikes his hair up and then proceeds to pull out library catalog drawers and throw and mix up library papers. This makes the man even more angry. The scene switches to Horler and the man where Horler seems to be apologizing. The man forgives her, and the scene switches to the front of the library where everyone in the library is dancing along with Horler (including the man). Afterwards Horler and the man leave the library via a side door and then the video ends.

From librarian-image.net:

The next music video I want to talk about is for Cascada's "Every Time we Touch". While the song is one of the usual pop-y love songs, the setting is a library and the object of the singer's affection is a librarian. Complete with the glasses, bow tie (which I guess is the male stereotypical equivalent of the bun?) and shushing action, while she dances through the library singing of her longing for him, he's hustling about fixing the card catalog and looking dismayed at all the noise. The library patrons also start out looking a bit put off when the singer jumps up on the reading table and goes to town, but then they all start dancing as well. Then the singer pulls off the librarian's glasses and loosens his tie, and whammo, he's now a dancin' maniac too! (Of course; we all know what happens when you take off a librarian's glasses!) The song ends with a great scene with all the library patrons dancing with the singer and librarian around the library. It's too bad it plays into both the male librarian stereotype and that of the poor, repressed librarian!
