"Let's Take The Long Way Home" as written by and Matthew Mark Mchugh....
So tired of this heavy load.
I've been carrying it for so long.
I don't know what it wants with me.
Lord please let me be.

Rolling dice on my hotel room bed.
"Man, it feels so nice to love some one" she said.
"Cause when the evening comes I'm scared to be bad all by myself."
And I know exactly how it feels to be by myself.

And now she's singing,
"Happiness always scared me half to death.
Never had myself no lovin' to caress."
Little darling stop those tears and dry those eyes, I'm a be right here.
And I'd really love to stay tonight, if you'll have me here.

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Little girl you know I love you so.
Let's take it easy now and simmer down.
Little girl, let's take the long way home.

    General Commenti don't think that's right at all.
    if he's masturbating by himself then why does it say "Man, it feels so nice to love some one she said" ? there's obviously a girl there with him and by rolling the dice he is taking a chance at the love with probably a random girl because of how scared he is to sleep alone. the heavy load is just his emotional baggage that he needs to get over.

    i'm not strongly against seeing sexual undertones in a song, i just don't think this song has any, or atleast not any perverted ones like that.

    General CommentThe rolling dice part clearly means jerking off. Why would you roll dice on a bed? You wouldn't, and he's not. For anyone who isn't making the connection, close your eyes and pretend like you're rolling dice, withouth actually casting them. Now open your eyes and realize the motion you're making. Moreover, its a hotel bed, and lonely hotel rooms are prime masturbation spots

    General CommentPS, two-handed rolling won't work with this exercise. And, this is more of a stretch of the imagination, but as a continuation of that little image, the first line about a heavy 'load' that he's been carrying for too long... it fits, in my perverted little mind anyway
