High wire, walkin’ with no net
Never knowin’ if the very next step
Is gonna take me far or take me down
Leave me hangin’ or on solid ground

Should I jump and face the hurt?
Give it all for all it's worth
At least I know I fell to fall
At least I know I chose to risk it all

You love me but leave me so confused
Don’t know what you wanna do
You say forever but I feel never

If it’s a commitment that you’re so afraid of
And I’m out here all alone
Well, I won’t be hangin’ on
To this high wire for long

You talk of weddings each July
If we look at diamonds, you don’t buy
It’s not the promises you break
It’s my heart each time you say, “Someday”

You love me but leave me so confused
Don’t know what you wanna do
You say forever but I feel never

If it’s a commitment that you’re so afraid of
And I’m out here all alone
Well, I won’t be hangin’ on
To this high wire for long

Time is your enemy, my friend
Too late’s comin', what will you do then?

You love me but leave me so confused
Don’t know what you wanna do
You say forever but I feel never

If it’s a commitment that you’re so afraid of
And I’m out here all alone
Well, I won’t be hangin’ on
To this high wire for long

No, I won’t be hangin’ on
To this high wire for long
