It was the strangest night
The kind of scene I don't fit into
I didn't feel so right
But she came back 'round
Drifting across my sight
Some apparition of make believe
I felt my chest grow tight
And I tumbled in

And she said, "Hey baby, hold my hand out on the wire"
Oh, I'm telling you the whole thing is just a breaking of desire
You'll inevitably hold on
Because you always do
You better walk that wire

Oh I'm talking tons 'cause I'm not made of steel
Somebody save me from myself
I'm just a man, alright, and I'm fumbling
With all this faded advice
Maybe the moment to make my move
You hold your breath so tight
'Cause we're tumbling

I said "Hey baby, hold my hand out on the wire"
I've been telling you the whole time
It's just a breaking of desire
Now I promise to be brave too
'Cause you've earned that right
You better walk that wire

There's something in the air, right?
Keep steady as you walk away
And we're never going to know, right?
It's better then the other way

I said "Hey baby, hold my hand out on the wire"
See, I never would have held on
But at the aching of desire
No there's heaven in a folk song
So just you hold on
'Cause you're dancing on the wire
Alright
