"Walking the Wire" as written by and Daniel Platzman Benjamin Mckee....
Do you feel the same when I'm away from you?
Do you know the line that I'd walk for you?
We could turn around, or we could give it up
But we'll take what comes, take what comes
Oh, the storm is raging against us now
If you're afraid of falling, then don't look down
But we took the step, and we took the leap
And we'll take what comes, take what comes

Feel the wind in your hair
Feel the rush way up here

We're walking the wire, love
We're walking the wire, love
We're gonna be higher, up
We're walking the wire, wire, wire

There's nights we had that just walk away
And there's tears we'll cry, but those tears will fade
It's the price we pay when it comes to love
And we'll take what comes, take what comes

Feel the wind in your hair
Feel the rush way up here

We're walking the wire, love
We're walking the wire, love
We're gonna be higher, up
We're walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below
Look out down below
Look out down below
Walking the wire, wire, wire
So look out down below

Oh, I'll take your hand when thunder roars
And I'll hold you close, I'll stay the course
I promise you from up above
That we'll take what comes, take what comes, love

We're walking the wire, love
We're walking the wire, love
We're gonna be higher, up
We're walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below
Look out down below
Look out down below
Walking the wire, wire, wire
So look out down below

We're walking the wire
We're walking the wire
We're walking the wire, wire, wire

    General CommentAs someone being in a long-term relationship with children...

    This one is definitely about taking the risks of a relationship (hence "walking the wire"), because every true relationship is based on really fragile things like trust, passion and yes, friendship (these things being the wire). These emotions can get you "high" (feel the wind in your hair), but cost you some (tears, nights you just walk away). The song is also about complete devotion to each other (we took the step, and we took the leap, and we'll take what comes"). Sometimes, there are moments where you are afraid of where the relationship might be heading or of losing your loved one ("if you're afraid of falling then don't look down"). Also, in times of insecurity being there for one another ("I'll take your hand when thunder roars, and I'll hold you close, I'll stay the course").

    For me, this song is about a relationship with true love and for me, these lyrics are clear as can be. Just beautiful. Wishing everybody here a relationship as described by the Dragons.

    My OpinionI don't tend to like love songs. But this is the most inspiring love song I think I've heard in a long time. It makes it all seem ok and worth it. Great job Dan...and Aja.

    My InterpretationLove this song

    I think this song is expressing the intensity of love. When people don't hold back and fall hard for one another. Theres anxieties of falling from grace or not surviving the anything but bliss state.
    The wire and storm with looking out below symbolizing the risks taken and the endurance needed to allow a intense relationship of love transition from passion to companionship.
