"Tightrope" as written by Thomas Allan Flowers, Douglas James Eldridge and Richard C. Ivanisevich....
Can't find yourself
If you're lost in a crowd
Can't hear advice
If you're screaming out loud
For someone please listen to me
can't figure out
What you don't understand
Can't realize
What you don't comprehend
But it's always
Been plain to see
But if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
Razor blade wire
It's a high hope
That you acquire
It's a tightrope
Razor blade wire

Can't say hello
If you're never around
Can't pace yourself
If you never slow down
'Cause your always
Running full speed
Can't take too much
If you don't let them in
Can't feel the touch
Of a life within
If you're always

Fulfilling the need
But if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
It's a tightrope
Razor blade wire
It's a high hope
that you acquire
It's a tightrope
Of razor blade wire

Oh if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
It's a tightrope
Razor blade wire
It's a high hope
that you acquire
It's a tightrope
Of razor blade wire

    General CommentGreat song. I believe it's about someone who's on the edge, about to snap.
