I'm an ever rollin' wheel
Without a destination real
I'm an ever spinning top
Whirling around till I drop

Oh, but what am I to do
My mind is in a whirlpool
Give me a little hope
One small thing to cling to

You got me going in circles
Oh, oh, oh, round and round I go
You got me going in circles
Oh, oh, oh, round and round I go

I'm spun out over you
(Over you, over you, over you)
Over you, over you

I'm a faceless clock
With timeless hopes that never stop
Lord, when I feel that way
Of my soul, my soul at stake

Oh, but what am I to do
My mind is in a whirlpool
Give me a little hope
One small thing to cling to

You got me going in circles
Oh, oh, oh, round and round I go
You got me going in circles
Oh, oh, oh, round and round I go

I'm spun out over you (I need you, baby)
Over you (I need you, baby)
Spun out over you (I need you, baby)
(I need you, baby) Oh, baby (Baby)

I'm spun out (I need you, baby)
I said I'm spun out over you (I need you, baby)
Spun out over you (I need you, baby)
(I need you, baby) Baby, baby

(I need you, baby) I'm spun out
(I need you, baby)
