I’ve got this premonition
That my feelings will soon refocus
But right now I’m pleased
To be tight rope walking
Up where birds fly
With no one else around
Resting on telephone lines
With views of all the ones I know below
I’ll yell jokes
Pretend that they hear me
But I’ll be able to slip away
From any worries
It’s great living a life
Without having to hurry

I’m tight rope walking in the dark
Without any vision
Collecting step after step
Memories with each decision
The dark promises to make me fall for you
Soon, I’ll fall back down to you
I’m tight rope walking in the dark
I’ll soon come back down from the sky
Cause the dark is sly
And I’m bound to fall back down

Looking down on the clouds
Thunder, lightning, rain
Life’s easier up here
Up here I avoid the storms
The change of the seasons
They look pretty but I need a break
From the cycles of life
The ups and downs
Have been to extreme
The winter was freezing
No flowers came with spring
Summer is hotter than ever
It’s made my decision easy
I’m staying up here for the fall
At least until the dark calls
Cause I’ve got this suspicion
That deep down I’ll find
It’s too dark, oh indecision

I’m tight rope walking in the dark
Without any vision
Collecting step after step
Memories with each decision
The dark promises to make me fall for you
Soon, I’ll fall back down to you
I’m tight rope walking in the dark
I’ll soon come back down from the sky
Cause the dark is sly
And I’m bound to fall back down

I’m only getting lost
A little getaway
From auto focus
Life’s tough conditions
I’ve adjusted my life
Running a manual transmission
Each step I take on the tight rope
Is solely my decision
I’m seeing and being free
Living my own dreams
But I’m far too shy
To tell the birds
That I’ll soon be moving on
I don’t care right now
If it may be wrong
The lie I’m living
It’s sure to get back to me
But while I walk I balance
On the beams of light
Shining up on me
Chin up, cleaned up, smirked up
Saw you, glaring my direction
Adding colors glowing
Below the opaque clouds
Simple arithmetic, numberless addition
Pupil to pupil, wordless communication
It’s dark out, our minds shine
The dark’s making sure
You’re who I find

I’m tight rope walking in the dark
Without any vision
Collecting step after step
Memories with each decision
The dark promises to make me fall for you
Soon, I’ll fall back down to you
I’m tight rope walking in the dark
I’ll soon come back down from the sky
Cause the dark is sly
And I’m bound to fall back down

I’ve got this fascination, an obsession
Walking on ropes
High with kites
But I’ll come down
I’ll come down
When I want to try
When I’m tired of being lonely
Alone, without you
Cause I can’t afford the whole shore
And eventually I’ll want you more
My views, each breath
I’ll share with you
When I come back down
Remember, you weren’t the reason I fled
There’s no one I’d want instead
I wish I would have known you
Before I left, I may have stayed
But I needed some time
A second alone tight rope walking

Lucky for you and me, it was dark
It made me take a misstep
And I fell right into your arms
And I like your charm

Lucky for you and me, it was dark
It made me take a misstep
And I fell right into your arms
And I like your charm
