Lyrics
Round and round, round and down; seems that’s how it’s supposed to be.
Spinnin’, spinnin’, shakin’ free; seems that’s all that happens to me…

And I get ‘em; and they fly –
I fix their broken wings, just to watch ‘em fly…

Seeing smiles as they span those miles, I guess I find a little piece of mine;
But if that’s true, then why these fears; I’ve cried so long, so many tears…

And when at last my work is done; I’m in love, but I’m the only one.
So now I’m off to chase again, a broken wing; I think I’ll make me a friend…

And I get ‘em; and they fly –
I fix their broken wings, just to watch ‘em fly…

Since I'm retired from active performing the hope is a producer with an artist looking for a hit song would want to record it.

I even used to play this on the streets of L.A. and it was always a fan fav.

Thank You
It was nice of Davis to highlight this song. No, I play rhythm guitar but I had studio musicians on the rest.

Most of it is real. And since my late mom was from Nova Scotia Canada and Scot-Irish there is a bit of Celtic in there.

Wonderful song and production. Different enough to catch one's attention. I see all kinds of spiritual analogy here. Very good lyric and storyline.

Thanks,

What thoughts...
When the lyrical content and singing are this good, you don't need to bury it. And therefore this is the perfect mix for this tune. Live can be hard, this has a bittersweet quality to it--which is astoundingly optimistic considering the state of things. What a set of thoughts this opens up.

Great track this is - for sure
very original and deep in the pocket - with excellent vocals and production. Love the horn? additions along with the strings - and the tambourine break is genius. This is so good - not sure how it got passed me before.
Found it on your Forum post to Tony. May his spirit soar on this tune. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
