"High Wire" as written by and Colin James Hay....
You try so hard to hold the sun,
Your hands get in the way,
Block the light and leave you left cold and alone,
I don't ever want to wake up the way you did that day,
Holding sheets over the hole in your heart,
Wait your life alone

As if some sudden streak of luck would set things right,
And every time you think that its there it doesn't hold,
Hanging there,
Baby I saw you there

Tripping on awkward words like your mouth was full,
All my fear I know that it won't compare,
To living your high wire life like the line that would hold,
Powerless I can't help you out you stay in bed all day,
Please admit that it might not be your fault,
Try so hard to prove myself that we just don't compare,
To living your high hire life like the line that would hold,
You try so hard to hold up the sun,
Your hands get in the way,
Would you even know who you are,
If you just let go,
Hanging there
Baby I saw you there

Tripping on awkward's words like you mouth was full,
But all my fear you know that it won't compare,
To living your high wire life like you'd never fall
