Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Days go by, I wonder if you hear me
Can’t you read between the lines?
Now I’m standing still, I am disappearing
Take this chance, I’ll make you mine

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t you wonder why
You change in time
Makes you feel so empty inside

[Chorus]
But love’s got me cornered in the back of the room
I’m spinning around, I’m spinning around
And all I see is someone I don’t know
Love’s got me tangled, tired me too
No sign of a wall, sign of wall
Spinning me around
And baby all I see is you

[Verse 2]
He tells lies, are you really thinking
That you deserve another try
When you see these eyes
You see another planet
Don’t ask how, but fate decides

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t you wonder why
You change in time
Makes you feel so empty inside

[Chorus]
But love’s got me cornered in the back of the room
I’m spinning around, I’m spinning around
And all I see is someone I don’t know
Love’s got me tangled, tired me too
No sign of a wall, sign of wall
Spinning me around
And baby all I see is you

[Verse 3]
Spinning and turning
And living and learning
I should be able to handle this
Make it or break it
Move it or shake it
Do it or fake it
Girl you’ve got to make it

[Chorus]
But love’s got me cornered in the back of the room
I’m spinning around, I’m spinning around
And all I see is someone I don’t know
Love’s got me tangled, tired me too
No sign of a wall, sign of wall
Spinning me around
And baby all I see is you

[Outro]
Spinning me around
And baby all I see is you
Spinning me around
And all I see is you
