You walk out on the high wire
You're a dancer on thin ice
You pay no heed to the danger
And less to advice

Your footsteps are forbidden
But with knowledge of your sin
You throw your love to all the strangers
And caution to the wind

And you go dancing through doorways
Just to see what you will find
Leaving nothing to interfere
With the crazy balance of your mind

And when you finally reappear
At the place where you came in
You've thrown your love to all the strangers
And caution to the wind

It takes lover over gold and mind over matter
To do what you do that you must
When the things that you hold can fall and be shattered
Or run through your fingers like dust
