"And Around" as written by Brian Yale, Robert Kelly Thomas, John Goff and John Joseph Stanley....
You said adjust your heels girl, they stick out like an anchor
Don't touch the flowers, 'cause you can't hear them well
Couldn't last forever, lord ya know it's gonna end sometime

This is not an order, you don't have to be here
Can you understand me, screamin like the wind blows
Did I blow your mind, leave you breathless

I guess I've changed but yeah couldn't you
Given all we've been through
Heaven knows I've been around and around

Eighty six the candles, I'm scared of the bright lights
Girl, try not to touch me, so you don't feel me
Or you can touch my shoulder, put your lips to my ears and scream
Is there anyone home, won't you answer me

Chorus:
I guess I've changed but yeah couldn't you
Given all we've been through well
Heaven knows I've been around and around
I guess I've strained well how bout that
Here's my life, here's a doorstep
Heaven knows I've been around and around

I guess it's been a good year, for roses and aggressions, for flowers and freeways
I guess I'll put a smile on, or get a new girlfriend, ya put a new hat on

This is not an order, you don't have to answer
Only need to listen, if only for a moment
Did I blow your mind girl, did I leave you breathless, I said

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentI love this song, love it, but I don't have any clue what the lyrics mean. Especially the first lines. I mean really:
    ou said adjust your heels girl, they stick out like an anchor
    Don't touch the flowers, cuz you can't hear them well
    Couldn't last forever, lord ya know it's gonna end sometime

    What on earth does that mean? Still, I can't get over how great the song is. It sounds cool despite the strange lyrics.

    General CommentI can't really help with those first two lines -- I've tried, but I just can't wrap my mind around the metaphor. That's probably why those two lines bug me so much! I agree that this is a great song, though. My favorite part: "I guess it's been a good year, for roses and aggressions, for flowers and freeways. I guess I'll put a smile on, or get a new girlfriend, ya put a new hat on." Now *that* I get. All too well.

    General CommentThis song always sounded like relationship confusion or relationship trouble to me. It always made things sound like an unstabble relationship ready to collapse. Loss of hope maybe? Great song though.
