about

Some songs take an hour to write, some take a week and some take a year. This one took 20 years (or longer). I had to live it first, get good and fed up with myself and eventually learn that the hardest person to forgive is your self. I think that’s what this song is about, and maybe, in another 20 years, I’ll know for sure.

Special ‘Thanks’ to my buddy Woody Moran for suggesting I record this one 2 years after I’d written it, forgotten it and left it for dead on the side of the highway somewhere out in the desert. He saw something in it I couldn’t see yet...

lyrics

Spinning My Wheels
By Dan Weber © 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

The bones of the day broke away, in the rearview, what’s left to say?
I should be done, driving tonight
‘Cause I’m done with the darkness, and the seatbelt as a harness
And I’m tired of being, too tired to fight

And I’m sick of my excuses, bad habits and abuses
Those potions don’t work, anymore
And anymore I’m a stranger, to myself, and I’m in danger
Of not knowin’, what I’m drivin’ for

Chorus:
I’ve taken my chances, made my mistakes
I broke both legs for luck, just in case…
Now somewhere in the distance, there’s a town where I belong
I’ve been Spinning My Wheels, too long

When I started I was younger, there was fire and hunger
And plenty of time to kill
Now lookin’ back I can’t believe, in a blink I was deceived
Cause 20 years went quicker than a $20 dollar bill

And that shadow I was racing, she wasn’t worth chasin’
Those lights play tricks on you
And that dashboard St. Christopher fell off on the curves
I guess there’s only so much, saints can do

Repeat Chorus

Now home ain’t so, far away

Repeat Chorus

The bones of the day broke away, in the rearview, what’s left to say?
I should be done, driving tonight
