Songtekst

Who'd a thought that
I'd be here by myself
Who'd a thought that
You'd be bad for my health
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire

Who'd a thought
About the cause and effect
Yesterday’s love is now
Tomorrow's regret
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire

No, I can't look down
I'm tryna fight the feeling
I will fall to the ground
If I ever see you, cause
I feel like

I'm walking a tightrope
My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

Who'd a thought
I'd see you with someone else
Who'd a thought
That I'd be in such a mess
Now you know, now you know
I'm just a man on a wire

But I'll walk that line
I’ll try and keep my senses
Make it to the other side
I know the consequences and
I feel like

I'm walking a tightrope
My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

The higher it gets, oh
The more I miss the ground
No safety nets, oh
Now you’re not around
I have to keep walking
To keep me from falling down
Feels like

I'm walking a tightrope
My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire, yeah
