"Another Spin" as written by and Kevin Neil Hearn....
I had time to kill
One day in Alaska
I walked around until
I found the arts and crafts shop
I bought you a card
I don't know where to send it
I wrote it from the heart
I'm not sure how to end it

I wonder where have you been?
Will I see you again
I give the globe another spin
All this time I'm wonderin'
Give the globe another spin
Are you in
Berlin?

Sweet potato pie
Is what your mom would always make
Your father smoked a pipe
My hand crushed in his handshake
They say you took a job
Spying for the army
And had to relocate
With a new identity

I wonder where have you been?
Will I see you again?
I give the globe another spin
All this time I'm wonderin'
Give the globe another spin

Are you in (are you in)
Afghanistan?

Are you in

    General CommentI good song. He's in Alaska and decides to send a card to his friend, but he doesn't know where to send it because he doesn't know where he/she is. His friend's family told him that his friend is somewhere doing something for the army, and he's spinning a globe and thinking about where his friend could be. Berlin? Afghanistan?

    General CommentI think this song is about the singer sending his ex a card. He's not sure where to send it so he calls her parents, who tell him that she's spying for the ARMY. The way I interpret it it sounds like that's a lie.

    Om My Gosh! Who loves Kevin's voice on this song? He sounds amazing!!!! I ADORE his voice on everything he doesn but this has got to be one of his best songs. Not to mention he wrote it all by his lonesome...

    General CommentThis is a song about a lovesick guy who's trying to find (or perhaps is stalking) a girl who has severed ties with him. He's spinning the globe to choose the next place he'll look for her "Give the globe another spin".

    Her parents make up the story that she "had to relocate with a new identity" to protect her from this guy.

    The dad does his part to intimidate the guy or perhaps just send a messagethat he doesn't like this guy pining for his daughter "My hand crushed in his handshake".

    The song starts out in Alaska as this was one of the places that the globe stopped on when he spun it and it ends with where he'll go next "Are you in........Afghanistan????"

    Fun song by Kevin.
