IUp on the wire
I like to climb and play with the sky
The people far below
The air is clear
And I can perceive
The whole world is shining
Life is sublime
And when you dare to go up in the air and leave the earth far behind you
As I step and dip and leap into a space beyond
Up high
Just for a moment
Alive
And so afraid but alive
As I push against the sky and my heart has broken free


IIFear turns to joy
When you can race the edge of the sky
And life's intense and strong
It's not so long
Before you will run
Beyond your horizons
Up on the wire
The line is thin and you must bow and surf against the sky so precisely
But the sky seems to go on as far as you can see
Up high
Just for this moment
Alive
And so afraid but alive
As the wire disappears
And you've finally broken free

Solo

IIIAs I step and dip and leap into a place beyond
Up high
Just for this moment…

Up on the wire
I like to climb and play with the sky
The people far below
The air is clear
And I can perceive
The whole world is shining
Life is sublime
And when you dare to go up in the air and leave the earth so precisely
As I step and dip and leap into a place beyond
Up high
Just for this moment
Alive
And so afraid but alive
As I dip against the sky and my heart has broken free
Broken free
Broken free
Up high
