I walk the tightrope
and tell you I love you
Even if you don't
Even if you don't
I'll say the words that I long to hear
"I hold you so dear"

I hold my breath in the moments that follow
Even though you don't
Even though you don't
And then you speak so soft I can't hear
a word you are saying
(what are you saying? what are you saying?)

She's singing songs of passion
She's singing songs of silence
Her words are bolts of lightning

"What do you see when you look at me?
Am I the one or am I just another
androgynous friend in the passing
How weak am I?
When I'm not in your bed
Do I still figure in your head?
Do you think of me in the night
when you can't sleep?"

And she's singing:
"I can never be with you"

I walk the tightrope and tell you I love
Even if you don't
Even if you don't
I'll say the words that I long to hear
"I hold you so dear"

"What do you see when you look at me?
Am I the one or am I just another
androgynous friend in the passing
How weak am I?
When I'm not in your bed
Do I still figure in your head?
Do you think of me in the night
when you can't sleep?
When I'm not in your bed
Do I still figure in your head
Do you think of me in the night
when you can't sleep?"

And she's singing, and she's singing
and she's singing:
"I can never be with you"
