"The Wire" as written by Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Tia Sellers and Mark O Selby....
If I were a crow, I wouldn't have no fear of heights
For watching this old world's fragile below
I don't have a net, don't have no jet wings, I can't fly
If I miss a step, yeah, that's how I'd go

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
On the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

If I was a king, somebody would take the risk for me
I'll just sit and watch them walk the line
But if my night burns out like a match in gasoline
If I take the fall, well, it's all mine

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
Up on the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
On the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

Higher, on the wire
Tell me what I'm up here for
I'm on the wire, on the wire
I ain't looking down no more
