Classic Country K. A. Patterson: Albums

Twists And Turns

(K. A. Patterson and the Paradise Band featuring Chad & Amber)


I squirm in the glow of these dashboard lights and I wonder what my life

so far would’ve been without you there.

Being so far from our home and alone puts me under the uneasy spell of

reflection, as down this lane I stare.

Time I have to spend away from you is a teacher – gently

reminding me that “two shall be as one”.

In the mirror, now fading from my view, glow the last town’s features . . .

And this lonely moonlit highway rolls on and on.

This lonely moonlit highway rolls on and on.


Where, oh where, have the years flown?

By now, you’d think that I could stay at home –

And be at ease to spend all my nights and days

Wrapped in your world, living our fantasies –

But life, I’ve learned, has other twists and turns, for you and me.


I squint in the glow of the blinding sunrise in that Eastern sky, and know my life

back home with you, I’m still anchored by.

Being so far from our home and alone can never make me stray from the vows we

made – before God – back on our wedding day.

Time I have to spend a way from you is a teacher – gently reminding me “for

better or for worse”.

In the mirror, now I don’t see a preacher, just a simple man who takes all of life’s ups

and downs as a blessing – not as a curse,

As this crowded sun-baked highway rolls on and on.


Where, oh where, have the years flown?

By now, you’d think that I could stay at home –

And be retired to spend all my nights and days

Wrapped in your world, living our fantasies –

But life, it seems, has other plans and schemes, for you and me.

Oh yes, life, we’ve learned, has other twists and turns, for you and me.
