"Spinning His Wheels" as written by Gary Scott Burr and Olivia Newton-john....
He didn't get home until ten
He was still hard at work even then
He didn't notice the change in her hair
Or the candles that burned everywhere
She went off to bed all alone
He didn't notice she'd gone
And it takes all her strength to hang on
She's on the edge of a circle watching him spin around
They can't reach each other until he slows down
They can't find the center, how lonely that feels
She's stuck in a heartache, he's spinning his wheels
He crawls into bed after two
With a head full of things he should do
And he makes it quite clear with his kiss
She's no longer on top of his list
There are times when she can't feel his love
So she remembers the way that it was
And she'll hold on tight till he does
She's on the edge of a circle watching him spin around
They can't reach each other until he slows down
They can't find the center, how lonely that feels
She's stuck in a heartache, he's spinning his wheels
Oh, he's on a rise to the top
She won't ask him to stop
Just please don't forget her
Oh, he's so blinded by pride
She'd be right by his side
If he would just let her
They can't find the center, how lonely that feels
She's stuck in a heartache, he's spinning his wheels
She's stuck in a heartache, he's spinning his wheels
