WALKING ON A WIRE
(Linda Thompson)

I hand you my ball and chain
You just hand me that same old refrain

I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling

I wish I could please you tonight
But my medicine just won't go on right

Too many steps to take
Too many spells to break
Too many nights awake and no one else
This grindstone's wearing me
Your claws are tearing me
Don't use me endlessly, it's too long
Too long to myself

Where's the justice and where's the sense
And all the pain's on my side of the fence

I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling

Too many steps to take
Too many spells to break
Too many nights awake and no one else
This grindstone's wearing me
Your claws are tearing me
Don't use me endlessly, it's too long
Too long to myself

It scares you when you don't know
Whichever way the wind might blow

I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling

I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling

I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling
