Sleep, some nights it just don't show
When you've pushed and life won't go
Your dreams get lost and your sorrows grow
You read and try to watch TV, take a drive out to the sea
You might break down but you can't break free.

Standin' in a crossfire, hangin' from a live wire
Reachin' for a lost smile and hidin' in the wind
Standin' in a crossfire, stranded on a high wire
Runnin' from a reason and lookin' for a friend.

Dreams, your eyes are almost blind
They photograph your mind
And leave a trace of her love in time
Nights, you live the smoky past
Try to break the spell she cast
You start out first but you end up last.

Standin' in a crossfire, hangin' from a live wire
Reachin' for a lost smile and hidin' in the wind
Standin' in a crossfire, stranded on a high wire
Runnin' from a reason and lookin' for a friend.

Standin' in a crossfire, hangin' from a live wire
Crossfire, live wire...
