Give me a kiss before I'm to go
A lingering kiss to keep me warm
Pack your things and don't tell a soul
My clumsy dancer, my good luck charm
I think of you when I'm up in the air
Things we'll do when we get out of here
The net stretched to catch me's the trap that I'm in
My future's in pictures all over your skin

Deep in the high that does nothing but fall
Swing on a wire high over it all
I look down at the sky and up at the floor
Deep in the high that does nothing but fall

We were so young and innocent
Back then when we first met
You were so tender and sweet
I cherish the memory
Words that you said to me
You swept me right off my feet
Now I know a couple things
There's our life in the ring
Then there's the life that you live
You've grown cold and distant
It's making me desperate
Something is going to give

Beware the snake charmer with the lazy green eye
She's a hotheaded harpy with a murderous mind
I've been in her coils for ten years of my life
A pox on these rings which do nothing but bind
It must have been madness when we were wed
The liquor of passion gone straight to our heads
Ever since then there's been only regret
Bile in our hearts and snakes in our bed

Deep in the high that does nothing but fall
We had our time darling, that time is no more
I look down at the sky and up at the floor
Deep in the high that does nothing but fall

You're a bastard
Seedy unscrupulous
Candy ass dilettante
Lazy Lothario
Rat turd
You're a bastard
Self-centered impotent
Cheap inconsiderate
Two-timing ignorant
Layabout flatulent
Mama's boy
Drunken disaster
You're a son of a whore

Deep in the high that does nothing but fall
I loved you too much if I loved you at all
I look down at the sky and up at the floor
Deep in the high that does nothing but fall

I know that you lied to me
I've got a memory
Long as an elephant's trunk
I'll make you remember me
Now I'm your enemy
You will regret what you've done
Think of all of the years we spent
Under this circus tent
Now I am wondering why
You'll know what I meant
It'll look like an accident
When I teach you how to fly

He flies through the air with the greatest of ease
The daring young man on the flying trapeze
His movements are graceful the girls he does please
The daring young man on the flying trapeze

Deep in the high that does nothing but fall
Swing on a wire high over it all
I loved you too much if I loved you at all
We had our time darling, that time is no more
I look down at the sky and up at the floor
Deep in the high that does nothing but fall
