  • On the end of a tight rope
    I'm over the town
    I'd be good in a circus
    But so would a clown
    From the way that I feel
    All my hang-ups are down
    In the middle of nowhere
    I found me a tree
    And the fruit that we live on
    Reminds me of me
    Though we live in the air
    I'm not sure that we?re free
    And I don't really have much to say

    Cause I'm Living from day to day
    Somewhere
    And I don't care what the people say

    Cause if everyone know the way we?re nowhere.
    Two and two make four
    They never make five
    And as long as we know it
    We all can survive
    Make sure that the things you do
    Keep us alive
    And I don't really have much to say

    Cause I've living from day to day
    Somewhere
    And I don't care what the people say

    Cause if everyone knows the way we?re nowhere.
    Is the image I'm making
    The image I see
    When the man in the mirror
    Is talking to me Writer/s: GRAHAM NASH
