  • I tore up like your baby blue jeans
    I was stepping through a fog
    Under pressure, but I'm feeling weightless
    Can't let heaven's pin-striped shooting
    Leave you carrying across
    Across the desert when you're feeling faithless
    After all, this haze is only temporary
    Laughter falls on deaf ears in the auditorium

    Stories stacked up so tall
    And you don't talk me down
    You'll talk me through
    Bright lights on platform fire
    I'm a man on a wire
    You're here for the view

    Scattered in the mist, I'm moving
    It's getting hard for you to watch
    You're under pressure when I'm feeling weightless
    Up where tensions aren't computing
    Where I've never fallen off
    I guess I'd like to think your worry's wasted
    Worry is wasted on me
    After all, this haze may not be temporary
    I heard you call
    In the back row of the auditorium

    Stories stacked up so tall
    And you don't talk me down
    You'll talk me through
    yeah you talk me through
    Bright lights on platform fire
    on now, you're here for the view
    I'm a man on a wire
    You're here for the view

    So tell me what you think
    When you see me there
    And tell me what you see
    When the smoke is clear

    Tore up like your baby blue jeans
    I was stepping through a fog
    Stories stacked up so tall
    And you don't talk me down
    You'll talk me through
    Yeah, just like you always do
    Bright lights on platform fire
    I'm a man on a wire
    You're here for the view
    I'm a man on a wire
    You're here for the view

    Bright lights on platform fire
    I'm a man on a wire
    You'll talk me through Writer/s: ANDREW ROSS MCMAHON, MATTHEW THIESSEN
