It's a step
It's a step in the right direction
It's a tough and final decision
'Cause where will I go when I'm feeling blue?

Spinnin' my wheels
Wastin' my time
Makin' you feel you've nothing to hide

So save me and tell me how it all got so doubtful
Leave me nothing at all
Back on the old road
You're wishing you'll wind me down
Give me a mouthful
And leave me nothing at all

So chalk it up to the drone
Hack it out, wear it down
Where will you go when you're feeling blue?

So save me and tell me how it all got so doubtful
Leave me nothing at all
Back on the old road
You're wishing you'll wind me down
Give me a mouthful
And leave me nothing at all

So save me and tell me how it all got so doubtful
Leave me nothing at all
Back on the old road
You're wishing you'll wind me down
Give me a mouthful
And leave me nothing at all

    General CommentThis song is by far one of my favorites of Gregory and the Hawk, I can't believe it doesn't have more comments. Her voice and the tune is just so beaaaautiful.


    I'll have a shot at this,

    It's a step
    It's a step in the right direction
    It's a tough and final decision
    ( Making a decision that might better their relationship, but she's not sure about it. A tough decision. )
    'Cause where will I go when I'm feeling blue?
    ( She goes to him for everything, who's she going to go to after all this ? )

    Spinnin' my wheels
    Wastin' my time
    Makin' you feel you've nothing to hide
    ( Spinning her wheels, and getting her hopes up. Wasting her time because nothing is going to happen. I'm not quite sure about the "makin' you feel you've nothing to hide" part. )

    So save me and tell me how it all got so doubtful
    ( She wants to know what happened, what went wrong to get where they are now. In a mess. )
    Leave me nothing now
    Back on the old road
    ( She doesn't want anything from him after this? She's going back to the beginning, before him. )
    You're wishing you'll wind me down
    Give me a mouthful
    And leave me nothing now
    ( I can think of several ways to reword this, maybe he wants to gradually let her go, or maybe.. Hm. I'm not quite sure about this one either. )

    So chalk it up to the drone
    Hack it out, wear it down
    Where will you go when you're feeling blue?
    ( He's feeling guilty? Missing her.. Maybe )

    GOSH ! I dunno, I just adore this song. So much!

    General Commentshe sings "leave me nothing now" not "leave me nothing at all"
    i adore this song
    a relationship/friendship is going sour between two people, and it hurts to end it but its best if they just part ways
