play Spin

from Live Songs and Stories 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 her summer legs climb the stairs


So you follow on, tip right in, latch the bar, lean to

Feel the smooth touch of summer skin

Then it all starts moving like no one else can see you

Cupid pulls the lever and the whole thing spins


You had a shiny ride getting out of here

We never heard a word when you disappeared


Suddenly your lover just climbs right out

Steps across thin air and leaves you there

Try to catch your breath, but the bar is tight against your chest

And the ride is spinning so hard it holds you in your chair


Spin

You had a shiny ride getting out of here

We never heard a word when you disappeared


Well that shiny ride was just lies and skin

To lead you on, 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

Walking kind aimlessly, one hand on a railing

You stop a while to wait until the spinning slows down


'Cause you had a shiny ride getting out of here

We never heard a word when you disappeared

Well that shiny ide was just lies and skin

To lead you on, pull you in

Took you for a spin


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 right up


Took you for a spin
