The Friends Of Distinction. Produced by John Florez. Going In Circles Lyrics. I'm an ever rollin' wheel, without a destination real I'm an ever spinning top, whirling around till i drop Oh but what am i to do, my mind is in a whirlpool Give me a little hope, one small thing to cling to. You got me going in circles(oh round and round i go) You got me going in circles (oh round and round i go, i'm spun out over you). I'm a faceless clock, with timeless hopes that never stop Lord but i feel that way, of my soul  . 1. Grazing In The Grass. 2. I’ve Never Found a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do). 3. I Really Hope You Do (Missing Lyrics). 4. (A) Sweet Young Thing Like You (Missing Lyrics). 6. Eli’s Comin’ (Missing Lyrics). 7. Help Yourself (To All of My Lovin’) (Missing Lyrics).

Love Can Make It Easier/Revivi. Grazin, Higly Distinct. 0The Distinct Sound of The Frieinds of Distinction. Back in the late 60's and early 70's, there were of course some great records from many diverse groups from The Beatles to The Fifth Dimension. At first glance, they might have been perceived as another Fifth Dimension minus one but that was not the case. While The fifth Dimension recorded some unique productions of Jimmy Webb songs, The Friends of Distinctiion were more R&B for the most part.
