Bright lights and funny clowns
Hammin' it up on the circus grounds
Horses, big parade
Such a pretty sight, this love we made
From way up here, life's just a ball
With you by my side, love is worth the fall
(Chorus)
So we're tap dancing on a highwire
We could go tumbling down
But something makes me want to higher
Think it's having you around
Oh, get a look at us playing with fire
Oh, we're tap dancing on a highwire
Big applause, from the crowd of there
Watching our hearts hang in mid-air
No strings and no fear
Keeps our love suspended up here
We know we could lose our balance and fall
But a haert that don't dance
Ain't a real haert at all
(Chorus)
