Tightrope

entry picture

It’s a never-ending circus
Always running through my brain
Where the ringmaster he takes control
He’s driving me insane
The spectators seem to stare at me
They're waiting for the show
But the act they see is all a front
Inside they’ll never know
The cheering and the laughter
As I climb against the wall
The higher I get the best it gets
Up here I forget it all

 

Coz I'm walking a tightrope baby
With a fear I might fall
Walking a tightrope baby
Risking it all
With you, you know my history
The person that I long to be
I’m walking a tightrope baby
Just waiting to see
If you’ll walk it with me

 

The band is playing loud and proud
The show is underway
The acrobats amongst the acts
Are flipping as they play
The clowns they mess, how funny they dress
Face painted smiles point down
But what they hide behind that smile
Is an all too familiar frown
The lion with its tamer
Let’s out a mighty roar
He’s finally out and wants to shout
I ain’t being caged no more

 

Coz I'm walking a tightrope baby
With a fear I might fall
Walking a tightrope baby
Risking it all
With you, you know my history
The person that I long to be
I’m walking a tightrope baby
Just waiting to see
If you’ll walk it with me

 

Swinging high up in the sky
The trapeze act flying by
Being brave is what I crave 
It’s you who caught my eye

 

Coz I'm walking a tightrope baby
With a fear I might fall
Walking a tightrope baby
Risking it all
With you, you know my history
The person that I long to be
I’m walking a tightrope baby
Just waiting to see
If you’ll walk it with me
I hope you're walking with me
