Lyrics

Twister (Dot's Love)

Written By: Benson / Aspery / Shaw

My body is closer to yours
I could stare at your for hours
We're virtually on the floor
I'm drawn nearer by your powers

And I want
Her to touch me
I watch the colours reflect off her body
My love has a name,
She is Twister

We draw closer yet again
Soon we will be as one
Playing twister my love omen
together basking in the sun

And I want
Her to touch me
I watch the colours reflect off her body
My love has a name,
She is Twister

I trace the lines of your body
when your not around
mapped out in little
circles on the ground

The smell of her sweet aroma
She's getting up off the floor
Stopping for a cola
Wish to play with me, no more

Now I can't have her
She won't touch me
The colour blue engulfs my body
My love has a name
She is Twister

I trace the lines of your body
when your not around
mapped out in little
circles on the ground

Cottage Love

Written By: Wade Benson

The lake is calm
the moon stands still
the stars shine on
as the loon calls fill
the air through which
I stare into your eyes

We'll maybe go
for a skinny dip
cause the water's warm
and my heart will skip
at the thought of passing currents
through your thighs

And the time is now
While the sun stays down
for some cottage love
on summer's ground

The boat is made
of cedar strips
the pine trees smell
upon your lips
in the air through which
I stare into your eyes

The one main street
is sleeping now
the train's faint whistle
a fitting sound
for what might happen
here tonight

And the time is now
While the sun stays down
for some cottage love
on summer's ground

Long Way Home

Written By: Wade Benson

I've been chasing down this highway
I've been running from my home
I've been looking for the answers
In my head I've always known
And It's a long, long way home

Now the hardest part of losing
on the life that could've been
ain't the demons all around you
but the one's inside your head
And It's a long, long way home

Don't take much
No it don't take much
To hit the road
Hardest part
The Hardest part
Is coming home

About a hundred miles to Lost Hills
My car lay down to death
She said 'I think we can stop running'
wished me luck with her last breath
And It's a long, long way home

Don't know who you think you're fooling
When you're running from your past
You can scream on down the highway
But It's always on your ass
And It's a long, long way home

Don't take much
No it don't take much
To hit the road
Hardest part
The Hardest part
Is coming home

There's some things I can't remember
Some things I can't forget
I just wanna know I chosen
The things I must regret

Don't take much
No it don't take much
To hit the road
Hardest part
The Hardest part
Is coming home
