"Twister" as written by and August Cinjun Tate....
I need to hear you say goodbye.
I don't know why I hang around.
You will soothe the pain within my eyes
And then you leave without a sound.

Show me a sign and I'm
Taking you home.
Give me the time to show
How I have grown.

Under the old back porch you knew
I loved you more than there and so,
You will let me fall back on my own
And where you were I'll never know.

Show me a sign and I'm
Taking you home.
Give me the time to show
How I have grown.

There'll be sun, and
All eyes fall from heaven now.
See that I walk on.
That way.

So to the fall
All stares, all breaks and no breaths.
Yeah, I walk on through the listen.
So you're sad, I turn away

To find out what I can be and so,
All these colors
That shine within my soul,
And all I am, you'll never know.

Show me a sign and I'm
Taking you home.
Give me the time to show
How I have grown.

Mmmm, it all works in
All harboured lands.
Something is real here,
My real bonney lass.

Something is real here and it's real there.
It's real here.
Something's habit and some
Some things happen.

    General CommentThis person just cannot let go of a past relationship he/she wants a chance to show how they have matured and can now appreciate a relationship and how much they need one.

    General CommentThis is such a sad and at the same time beautiful song... portraying a man who feels lost after the end of a relationship... he needs closure if it's really over. But wants her to show him something other than indifference.. because he feels as if he's already grown and become a better person, that they deserve a second chance together. Because what they have is worth another chance, something is real here..

    General CommentActually Cinjun said on KCRW that the song is about his father "passing on".
    The lyrics however are such that it could just as well be about a relationship.

    General CommentI've always grasped it more as a song about death, or perhaps someone who kept poking in and out of your life- like a parent, friend, or love interest that keeps popping in and out. Mostly death.
