Yes I used to walk the highwire every night,
Yes I used to walk the tightrope
But it got too tight.
I walked the straight and narrow line,
My head was spinning round,
I worked without a safety net
But it was such a long way down.
Yes I used to walk the highwire every night,
Yes I used to walk the tightrope
But you need a head for heights,
I walked the straight and narrow rope,
My head was spinning round,
I worked without a safety net
But it was such a long way down.
Oh you might have seen us
If we came to your town,
This game's made for heroes
And clowns.
Not thinking about tomorrow,
Living for today,
I left a note saying
I'm going away.
I used to walk the highwire every night,
Oh I used to walk the tightrope
But it got too tight.
I walked the straight and narrow line,
My head was spinning round,
I worked without a safety net
But it was such a long way down.
