"Vertigo" as written by and Mark Erelli Antje Duvekot....
You're on a highwire and I'm climbing out
And I feel the danger as I steal a kiss from your mouth
And I will try to hold steady
Wanna make you believe
That the height of this tightrope is just second nature to me

But I will break
All my bones
'Cause I lied about the vertigo
And I have
Never been up this high
There'll be no safety net
When I fall right our of the sky
There will be no ambulance waiting
And I have no wings to fly

So we will meet on the borders,
Barefoot and blessed
In colorful graveyards with flower bouquets for the dead
And I don't ask you to promise
That I will not come to harm
But when the wind tugs my courage will you be my brother in arm

'Cause I will break
All my bones
'Cause I lied about the vertigo
And I have
Never been up this high
There'll be no safety net
When I fall right our of the sky
There will be no ambulance waiting
And I have no wings to fly

Oh the view from this height
High above the ferriswheel lights
Might cause me to sway
But I am teaching myself to be brave

And I may break all my bones
'Cause I lied about the vertigo
And I have
Never been up this high
There'll be no safety net
When I fall right our of the sky
There will be no ambulance waiting
And I have no wings to fly
