  • Turn on the spotlight, strike up the band
    Everyone's looking my way
    They came to see the excitement firsthand
    Hear all that I've got to say

    Oh, it makes me wonder What if I slip
    Will they catch me or watch me fall?

    I am walking on a wire, tiptoe in through the fire
    Never looking down to see that
    I am walking on a wire, the pressure's getting higher
    But I don't look around

    Everyone roots for the winner
    The others well maybe next time
    Time at the top only lasts fifteen minutes
    They just leave you behind

    Oh, it makes me wonder, what if I slip
    Will they catch me or watch me fall?

    I am walking on a wire, tiptoe in through the fire
    Never looking down to see that
    I am walking on a wire, pressure's getting higher
    But I don't look around, it's so far to the ground

    Will they catch me if I fall?
    Will they catch me if I fall?

    What if I slip
    Will they catch me or watch me fall?

    I am walking on a wire, tiptoe in through the fire
    Never looking down to see that
    Yeah I am walking on a wire, pressure's getting higher
    I don't look around it's so far to the ground
    I'm never looking down
