But it's the first time she ever felt touch
That didn't bring her to hush like something was being done to her

from P.O.S. – Been Afraid Lyrics on Rap Genius


Despite people telling her that he is no good he is the first one in her life to touch her with genuine affection and care.

Before he came along, when anybody touched her they were doing it for their own gain and didn’t care about her. But now when he touches her, she reciprocates those feelings and she realizes that her life could be different.
