The Guess Who – Of A Dropping Pin lyrics

(Bachman/Cummings)

Can I be somewhere when I'm nowhere
Gaze through a diabetic eye
Can I put down the right to be put down
And never known the right to try
I'd leave and take my pride with me
And find something I could carry it in
But all that breaks the stillness here
Is the sound of a dropping pin.

From the silence
Deep within
Comes the sound
The sound of a dropping pin.

From the silence
Deep within
Yeah, deep deep within
Comes the sound
The sound of a dropping pin.

Can I be something when I'm nothing
Build my hopes and dreams too high
I've searched too long for all the answers
Let alone the right to try
To think that you can take it with you
Is the one unforgiveable sin
But all that breaks the stillness now
Is the sound of a dropping pin.

From the silence
Deep within
Comes the sound
The sound of a dropping pin.

From the silence
Deep within
Yeah, deep deep within
Comes the sound
The sound of a dropping pin
