Spinners

This song is by The Hold Steady and appears on the album Teeth Dreams (2014).

Original video
Before she figures out what's wrong
They put another record on
She picks it up and she carries the cross
Heartbreak hurts but you can dance it off

Sure some nights she'll curse these clubs
Shes two years off some prairie town
She goes out most every night
She dresses up and she spins around

The same guy buys another round
To let her know he's interested
The nights go on forever now
But the morning comes up quick
You've got to loosen your grip

Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love
Salted rims and frosted mugs
You gotta get back out there

Flat champagne and inbound trains
Soft hands and phantom pains
Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love

Once she's pretty sure it's safe
She goes to a different place
Decides she's gonna get some guy
Before she even finds him

Then she's got him if she wants him
But she can't decide if she wants him
She goes out almost every night
She cuddles up and she spins aside

He comes in much closer
To signal he's still interested
Some nights are so complicated
Soft hands are so frustrated
She never gets in their cars

Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love
Salted rims and frosted mugs
You gotta get back out there

Flat champagne and inbound trains
Soft hands and phantom pains
Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love

She's two years off some prairie town
She dresses up and she spins around
Little looks and smaller talk
Heartbreak hurts but you can dance it off

She's three years off some prairie town
She dresses up and she spins around
She never lets them tie her down
It's a big city and there's just so much love

Once you're out there everything's possible
There might be a fight, there might be a miracle
Loosen your grip, it feels so incredible
Let the city live your life for you tonight

Once you're out there everything's possible
Even the bad nights, they aren't all that terrible
Loosen your grip, it feels so incredible
Let the city live your life for you tonight

Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love
Salted rims and frosted mugs
It's a big city, there's a lot of love

Tavern wine and tiny bugs
It's a big city, there's a lot of love
Never let them tie you up
It's a big city
