Illy – Tightrope lyrics

I was like what you want me to do?
She was like what you want me to choose?
I was like well I didn't say that, but you know
Help me help you, I'm on the balance beam to keep you happy
Or say fuck it, stay mad at mee
Know how that goes, drink, fight, patch things up in the back of a taxi
She can skate thin ice on wheels and no one get wet
She could walk five miles in heels not one foot out of step
And I swear I'll leave you swept,
Off your feet it's just my guess
I'm falling hard on myself, yeah over my head

Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold,
And I could be wrong – but I don't know I don't know!

Headed for the deep end, thursday we fight and forget it by the weekend
Fats learner, I figured out quick
With her it's not getting it's the keeping
Cause she's a gem, so everyone wants her shinning with 'em
Gettin my bulldog on bro,
Mind your step, keep it on your side of fence
I play my demo's one last once
Smile if she like sit, laugh if it sucks!
Cold blooded, she the first in my corner
But now, what's that if it ain't called love!
When it's all said & done, baby and happy 'till my heads spun
So I might get lucky
I might get none
Like I'm right back at square one!

Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold,
And I can't help it to feel that I'm about losing control!
Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold,
And I could be wrong, but I don't know I don't know!

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with a blindfold
It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with my eyes closed
It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, and I could be wrong
I could be wrong, yeah

Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold,
And I can't help it to feel that I'm about losing control!

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with a blindfold
Running with my eyes closed
It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, and I could be wrong
I could be wrong, but I don't know I don't know!
