"High Wire" as written by Jake E. Lee and Ray Gillen....
Standin' here, I got my eye on you
Your story bleeds, but there's no review
Honey drip and set my soul on fire
Stealin' hearts got me walkin' the wire
You're gonna lose control
All night long
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

Flash a smile, like a shiny blade
Everyone there thinks ya got it made
Sorry, child, can you take me higher
But you keep me hangin' on your lonely wire
You're gonna lose control
All night long
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

Oh, feels so good
You give me lovin' like no one could
You turn me child, inside out
Still you leave me drownin' in a sea of doubt

You're gonna lose control
All night long
You're gonna steal my soul, mama
You can't go wrong
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

Love, love, love
Oh, sweet child, I know where you come from now
High wire, baby
Oh, oh, oh

    General Commentfirst off i love this song and for it's meaning i think it's about a woman our man (the singer or one of the member of the band) realized late that she had too much baggage on her after falling in love with her. the song begins i think with our man feeling bad about this stranger who has been failing in her endeavors then falling for her. but realizes that winning her heart was a bad idea.
    he calls her high wire. the second verse i think says the success she's had now was all because of our man and when he asks her to take him along with her fame she wouldn't as if she thinks, now i'm famous i can do anything, including playing around with other men. all in all he says she's a good lover but too expensive. so he says she'll lose control all night long when he finds his true love, sorta like making her jealous.

    My OpinionJake E. Lee is amazing and I was named after him. The singer's great I think that the only reason that this group didn't make it was because they came during the grunge music era.
