This the story on how we lived
The glory of what we did
It started when we were kids
With music up in our heads
She said:

I've been out on the edge
Breathin' a little bit of fresh air
Big dreams, I took a chance
Held out for everything I got here

I've been, feeling, this life's
A circus, hanging on without a fear

Livin' on a high wire
Runnin' through a wildfire
You can't shake me, I'm not going nowhere
Walking on a tight rope
No net, high hopes
Step back, I'm gonna make it over

Na na na-na-na na na
Na na, livin' on a high wire
Na na na-na-na na na
Na na, livin' on a high wire

This the story on how we lived
The glory of what we did
It started when we were kids
With music up in our heads
She said:

Big top, turning around
No clowns, I'm running as I hit the ground
Front row, big show, is sold out
So I'm ready for the crowd roar, let's go

I've been feeling, this life's
A circus, hanging on without a fear

Livin' on a high wire
Runnin' through a wildfire
You can't shake me, I'm not going nowhere
Walking on a tight rope
No net, high hopes
Step back, I'm gonna make it over

Na na na-na-na na na
Na na, livin' on a high wire
Na na na-na-na na na
Na na, livin' on a high wire

When it comes to the beat
Seein' that the heads are movin'
Move off your seat
Achievement's what we really doin'
Freedom of speech
I'm in it just to win it
I'm springin' and I can see it:
In the end that you can be it
Cuz it's patience, statements
Famous, greatness
Movin' till you make it through
And maybe you can make it too

Livin' on a high wire (Alright)
You can't shake me, I'm not going nowhere
Walking on a tight rope
No net, high hopes
Step back, I'm gonna make it over

Na na na-na-na na na (Yeah we living on a high wire)
Na na, livin' on a high wire
Na na na-na-na na na (Top story, top story)
Na na, livin' on a high wire, yeah yeah
On top, baby
Na na na-na-na na na (We lookin', we lookin', we lookin' down now)
Na na, livin' on a high wire
