"Spinning" as written by and Andrew Mcmahon....
I'm keeping quiet 'till there is no more sirens
Lately it's been hard to keep the hinges on with all the noise
I'll find my words when there is no one talking
The room is spinning I have got no choice
Be patience I am getting to the point

I can't remember when the earth turned slowly
So I just waited with the lights turned out again
I lost my place but I can't stop this story
I'll find my way but until then I'm only spinning

I'm keeping quiet till the phone stops ringing
Lately it's hard to disconnect I just want something real
I'll find my words if I could just stop thinking
The room is spinning I have got no choice
Be patience I am getting to the point

I can't remember when the earth turned slowly
So I just waited with the lights turned out again
I lost my place but I can't stop this story
I'll find my way but until then I'm only spinning

Spin beneath the roof top
Hold on, wait until the room stops spinning

I can't remember when the earth turned slowly
So I just waited with the lights turned out again
I lost my place but I can't stop this story
I'll find my way, but in the end were only

I keep forgetting when the earth turned slowly
So I just waited till the lights come on again
I lost my place but I can't stop this story
I'll find my way but until then I'm only spinning

    General Commentthis song is such a new sort of upbeat for jack's. i love that andrew is trying new things with his voice on the record and showcasing the band more, and this song displays perfectly.

    i think each song on here, this included, has some lyric/reference about his struggle with leukemia mixed in.

    General CommentAgree with Kristal, it's about the world spinning around you and everything being crazy, but you have to keep going. Personally, I can relate a lot. Andrew said this is meant to be a record to help someone through a bad day, and it's going to do that, and it already has.

    Brilliant!

    General CommentMy favourite song on the new album. It's so breathtaking. The girls voice is absolutely beautiful with Andrews.
    He has the ability to put feelings into words and portray them perfectly. I love it.
