Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath.
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in cold sweat.
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race.
Feels like I'm losing time, at a breakneck pace.
Afraid of my own shadow, in the face of grace.
Heart full of darkness, spotlight on my face.
There was love all around me, but I was looking for revenge.
Thank God it never found me, would have been the end.
Walkin' the tight rope, steppin' on my friends
Walkin' the tight rope, was a shame and a sin.
Walkin' the tight rope, between wrong and right.
Walkin' the tight rope, both day and night.
Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's grin.
Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin' at a friend
We've had all our problems, that's the way life is.
My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends.
We have been walkin' the tightrope Trying to make it right
Walkin' the tightrope every day and every night
Walkin' the tightrope bring it all around.
Walkin' the tightrope from the lost to found.
Walkin' the tightrope stretched around the world.
Walkin' the tightrope save the boys and girls.
Walkin' the tightrope let's make it right.
Walkin' the tightrope do it, do it tonight.
Walkin' the tightrope
