Living on a wire
The sight of you could save my skin
And the sun is in my eyes
And the breeze lifts the hair from my neck

So precariously
I am inching my way across my life
I could fall if you don't call
A sick safety net appears when I see you

Oh, I climb so high
Waiting to fall

How does it go down
When you're the biggest kid in your own playground?
And how do you see me?
How do I fit in your hierarchy?

Oh, you tell the girls line up in single file
Just gotta rearrange my denial
That now I play with you
And now I see all the shit that isn't me
I'm too relieved to be mad, relieved and sad

I misplaced my mind
Thought it was lost and now I find
You were just very, very unkind

You know I always found
That my feet were dangling looking for solid ground
Is it maybe worth closing down the Ivory Tower
And coming back down to earth?

Oh, I, I climb so high
Waiting to fall

And then I cry like a child
On a neverending ride
Waiting to fall

Oh, I, I climb so high
Waiting to fall

And then I cry, like a child
On a neverending ride
Waiting to fall

No, I
No, I

Waiting to fall
Waiting to fall
