Lyrics: Spinning

Spinning* (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Page, ©1983)

What am I to do about this? Who am I to you?
There’s a splice somewhere in all this
You can find a way, you know it… Not so hard to do
All you got to do is show it
It’s only got to do with you

Spinning our wheels, spinning our wheels
Spinning our wheels for years
Well, you can’t get there, you can’t get there
You can’t get there from here

Doesn’t seem so well connected, threads are almost bare
Something’s new; just not expected
Tell me is it really there?

Spinning our wheels, spinning our wheels
Spinning our wheels for years
You can’t get there, you can’t get there
You can’t get there from here

Why should this be so hard? So close… Why are you afraid?
Just tell me where we are, I would try another way

How can I get to you? Where do I begin?

I try, but can’t get through… You won’t let me in

Spinning our wheels

How does it feel? Caught in the wheels for years

Doesn’t seem so well connected, threads are almost bare
Something’s new; just not expected
What am I to do about this? Who am I to you?
There’s a splice somewhere in all this
It’s only got to do with you

Spinning our wheels, spinning our wheels
Spinning our wheels for years (spinning)
You can’t get there, you can’t get there
You can’t get there from here (yeah)

Spinning our wheels, how does it feel?
Caught in the wheels for years (spinning… wheels)
You can’t get there, you can’t get there
You can’t get there from here (yeah)

Yeah, spinning our wheels, spinning our wheels
Spinning our wheels for years (spinning… wheels)
You can’t get there, you can’t get there
You can’t get there from here

One thought on “Lyrics: Spinning

  1. 6i kind of agree,that he seemed uneasy with this solo,front guy thing.He is so cute & good at his singing though.Guessing Diane wrote most all the lyrics,& he arranged music.Looks like Greg helped in that dept.Yeah,I’d day with the guitar he sure seemed happier.He may have thought it kind of humorous himself.But who am i?
