Walking the tightrope, now no consequences
Walking the tightrope numb and defenseless
I knocked on your door and you answered quite quickly
Said I could not come in, but we could walk around the garden together
Arm in arm, enjoying the weather and inspecting the crops
Green beans in profusion, long and straight
Burdening the wine like weeping willow
Ripe red tomatoes, soft and sweet
Perched upon their furry stalk, begging you to pluck
Crisp cucumbers proud bell peppers radiating eighteen shades of life
Life life life life
Life life life life life
Life life life life
Life life life life life

One green plastic basket of extra large extra sweet, extra well-fed strawberries
We ate them one by one 'til there was just one left
The largest, sweetest, extra fancy
And then we alternated bite by bite until it was all gone
Then it was all gone, all gone, all gone
Walking the tightrope, now no consequences
Walking the tightrope numb and defenseless

Can you spare any change for me tonight?
I need something to eat, somewhere to sleep tonight
Can you spare any change for me tonight?
I need something to hold, something to hold me tonight
Can you spare any change for me tonight?
I need someone to love, someone to love me tonight

Life life life life
Life life life life life
Life life life life
Life life life life life
Walking the tightrope
