lyrics

Spin Away

She carries numbers and she drops names.
She draws pictures but they're all so predictable and plain,
Of stick white houses where she might live
With some CEO who knows and sees what she could give to him.
My tongue was twisted, numb from Hennessy,
But darling you're not coming home with me;
Cause there is nothing here as obvious as it might seem.

She got married on Aesop's plain
Where it seems like things are happening but things don't ever change.
They took pictures before they came,
So when things get out of focus the cameraman's to blame.
Her tongue was twisted, tight around the seams,
But there is nothing else she says to me
But "I'm not quite so obvious as I might seem."

Spin resistance or spin away.
Now she's sold herself for love and she'll be okay.
If you're spinning a Sunday dream,
So predictable and obvious as it might seem,
Drop you're name and your number to someone like me.
