The Long Way Home

      This song is about a guy who meets a girl and suggests he walks her home for her protection.  The song strolls through the long way home, but the guy is in more of a hurry the closer they get. 

       It is presented here with Band in a Box, Reaper, Cakewalk, and Ozone 9 Dave Bell of Blue Attitude played guitar, and I added bass and vocals.

The Long Way Home

You know I noticed when you walked in, your eyes they smiled so bright.

Then suddenly your lips rose up into this grin

that knocked me right out of the fight.

I lost myself in you. We need to be alone. I know the long way home.


I know the cool stream that winds through the trees

and where you never walk alone.

I know all the shortcuts to places no one sees.

Let's take the long way home.

You came alone and you walked right up to me

and flashed your loving smile.

The rest of the patrons were watching you in awe appreciating such a style.

Let's turn around and go. We need to be alone. I know the long way home.

We've had enough of the place so let's go. It's such a lovely night.

We'll take our good time with stops along the way, and you can hold me tight.

We'll go a little ways where we can be alone. We'll take the long way home.
