High up above the crowd
The great Valerio is walking
The rope seems hung from cloud to cloud
And time stands still while he is walking

His eye is steady on the target
His foot is sure upon the rope
Alone and peaceful as a mountain
And certain as the mountain slope

We falter at the sight
We stumble in the mire
Fools who think they see the light
Prepare to balance on the wire

But we learn to watch together
And feed on what we see above
Till our hearts turn like the seasons
And we are acrobats of love

How we wonder, how we wonder
Watching far below
We would all be that great hero
The great Valerio

Come all you upstart jugglers
Are you really ready yet?
Who will help the tightrope walker
When he tumbles to the net

So come with me to see Valerio
As he dances through the air
Im your friend until you use me
And then be sure I wont be there

How we wonder, how we wonder
Watching far below
We would all be that great hero
The great Valerio
