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 the circle
Watchin' 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 spinnin' 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 the circle
Watchin' 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 spinnin' his wheels

Oh, he's on the 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 spinnin' his wheels
She's stuck in a heartache
He's spinnin' his wheels
