play Spin

from Turning Point BUY Slabster

Circus boy run-away,
steely eyed gypsy
seems to be adjusted
to the clatter of the fair
He says, "watch your step"
as he tears two tickets briskly
watches your summer legs
climb the stairs

So you on, tip right in
latch the bar, lean to
feel the smooth touch of summer skin
When it starts movin'
like no one else can see you
Cupid pulls the lever
and the whole thing spins
Took you for a spin

You had a shiny ride
gettin' out of here
We never heard a word
when you disappeared

Suddenly your lover
just climbs right out
steps across  thing air
and leaves you there
You try to catch your breath
but the bar is tight against you chest
and the rides is spinnin' so hard
it holds you in your chair
spin, took you

You had a shiny ride
gettin' out of here
We never heard a word
when you disappeared
when you disappeared

Well that shiny ride
was just eyes and skin to lead you on
and pull you in
Took you for a spin

When it lets you out
you find it's many months later
deep into winter in a small-time town
You're walkin' kind of aimlessly,
one hand on a railing
You stop a while to wait
until the spinnin' slows down

You had a shiny ride
getting out of here
We never heard a word
when you disappeared
when you disappeared
Well that shiny ride
was just lies and skin to lead you on
and pull you in

Took you for a spin
He said come on and ride
on a shiny new love
Don't look behind
you can step right up
Come on and ride
on a shiny new love
Don't look behind
you can step, step right up
Took you, took you for a spin
