Album: Cry Pretty (2018)

  • She's waiting, praying, that he don't drive tonight
    She's pacing the floor, she's checking the time
    Wondering how the glow with that porch light hasn't gone out
    'Cause it's been on now for three days straight, his been nowhere to be found
    Probably drowning in the neon, where the wagon broke down
    She called up his mama and his friends in town
    But they ain't seen him
    Another night of no sleepin'

    Round and around and around they go
    Will it end? Nobody knows
    She's all cried out on the kitchen floor
    Spinnin' rooms, spinnin' wheels, spinnin' outta control
    Spinnin' bottles, spinnin' bottles

    He's in a hotel room with the TV on
    Gettin' lost in the static with the curtains drawn
    Knowin' this could be the time that gets her gone for good
    He'd quit if he could
    But one down, two down, three down, four
    Can't even recognize the man in the mirror anymore

    Oh, round and around and around they go
    Will it end? Nobody knows
    He's passed out on the bathroom floor
    Spinnin' rooms, spinnin' wheels, spinnin' out of control
    Spinnin' bottles, spinnin' bottles

    This ain't a game
    Nobody wins
    Yeah, nobody gets lucky when that bottle spins
    Again and again, again and again, again and again

    So, round and around and around they go
    Will this end? Nobody knows
    Can't live like this anymore
    Spinnin' rooms, spinnin' wheels, spinnin' out of control
    Spinnin' bottles, spinnin' bottles
    Yeah, spinnin' bottles
