"one fine wire" as written by Jason Reeves, Colbie Caillat and Michael Blue....
I try so many times
But it's not taking me
And it seems so long ago
That I used to believe
And I'm so lost inside of my head
And crazy
But I cant get out of it
I'm just stumbling

And I'm juggling all the thoughts in my head
I'm juggling and my fears on fire
But I'm listening as it evolved in my head
I'm balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
And I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
And I was just walking on one fine wire
But It's frayed at both the ends
And I'm slow unraveling

Life plays such silly games inside of me
And I've had some distant cries, following
And their entwined between the night and sun beams
I wish I were free from this pain in me

And I'm juggling all the thoughts in my head
I'm juggling and my fears on fire
But I'm listening as it evolved in my head
I'm balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
And I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
And I was just walking on one fine wire
But it's frayed at both the ends
And I'm slow unraveling

And I'm juggling all the thoughts in my head
I'm juggling and my fears on fire
But I'm listening as it evolved in my head
I'm balancing on one fine wire

    General CommentIt seems everyone see this song as an interpretation of everyones unique personal situations. That is what is wonderful about the words to One Fine Wire.
    My first thought was an immediate struggle I personally have with Bipolar Disease. "One Fine Wire" is the actual "normal" feeling I have between "high and low" and believe me, it is a very thin wire...... Since the intensity of the high and lows has changed for me, I see my struggle and challenge with trying to find the "old" me and struggling or juggling with all of the new feelings in my head, literally.

    So I do remember the "balance" and it is making me "crazy" to keep searching back for that feeling again....

    General CommentWow, stage fright? That's completely different from what I was thinking, but I can see how it plays in. It's funny how everyone thinks all songs are about this big thing, like life, love, etc. (I know, because I do, too), and then it turns out to be a small component of life. Like stage fright. Funny. :)

    General CommentI'm suprised its about stage fright because the simplicity of the lyrics just make it so deep, it can be applied into any situation.

    When I heard the song for the first time I felt so crushed. It's not like I paid any attention to the lyrics, but it was the melody that got to me; despite its 'cheery' sounding tune, I don't know why it just sounds the exact opposite to me. It's when I decided to download the song and read the lyrics that I just started to cry.

    I love the words she chose because, to me, they just perfectly describe my life. Once upon a time, everything in my life was just so fine and so great; "I remember a time my balance was fine and I was just walking on one fine wire." Then so many horrible changes happened in my life, its like all my "balance" got chucked out the window. Whenever I hear this song I just want to cry and scream because this is just my theme song.
