Walking On a Wire (Features Steve Moakler)

I’m still here
I’m still around
You put my picture face down
I count the hours, count aloud, you count me out
You send your signals (oh)
I send flowers to the door that I can’t walk through anymore (anymore)

Never meant to break your back
Never meant to start a fire
Never meant to hold your head under the water my love
When you get this call me back I will be walking on a wire
Hoping you would take me back in spite everything I’ve done (no oh)

Put on your favorite dress
I’m such a mess I drag like a cigarette
You didn’t have to look so nice
To get me thinking twice
Never seen you walk so proudly
I’ve never seen step so soundly
I’m trying and crying to just quit
Because you just don’t give a…

Never meant to break your back
Never meant to start a fire
Never meant to hold your head under the water my love
When you get this call me back I will be walking on a wire
Hoping you would take me back in spite everything I’ve done (no oh)

We can’t go back, we can’t go back to where we started
And I can’t let that I won’t let that
Leave us lonely hearted
I would rather fight than sleep tonight
Please don’t roll your eyes love
I’m not about to let you go

Never meant to break your back
Never meant to start a fire
Never meant to hold your head under the water my love
When you get this call me back I will be walking on a wire
Hoping you would take me back in spite everything I’ve done (no oh)

    General CommentOMG this is such a great song! I think it's about a guy who caused a fight or something along those lines with his girlfriend and they broke up, and he wants her back. He's saying that he really messed up and he didn't mean to do everything he did. The girl in the relationship is doing fine and wearing nice up to show off and show him what he's missing out on.

    Great song, I love his voice in this one! MFH is <3

    General Commenti absolutely love this song.
    i love mfh, in general.
    i feel like i can relate to all of their songs so much.

    this one reminds me of my ex boyfriend. we faught all the time. i never gave him the time of day, i always thought he'd be there for me. he used to tell me to stop acting like his ex girlfriend, because he couldn't be with someone who acted as annoying as her. well finally he broke up with me, and a week later is dating his ex girlfriend. he makes it seem like he's so much better off, and i miss him like crazy. and there's nothing i can do to go back to where we started.
