"HIGH WIRE"

Verse 1
Oh, to walk again on solid ground, the way you did before
Though you hate being earthbound, can't take the tension anymore
On the hi-gh wire. --

Verse 2
Foolhardy, you presumed to climb; lifted yourself above the crowd,
You gained the spotlight only to find there was no way to get down
Off the hi-gh wire.

Chorus 1
Drop down, drop down [into God's arms]
Into God's arms, my friend.
He'll give you freedom, [He'll give you freedom]
A fire that never ends. -

Verse 3
Were you destined to walk the clouds? What force was pushing you higher?
Your restless soul could not be bound as you sought the sacred fire,
Climbing the hi-gh wire. --

Verse 4
At the end of your perfect story, as high as anyone ever goes,
You were bound to your high-wire glory, as bound as those standing watching below,
Bound to the hi-gh wire.

Chorus 2
Drop down, drop down [into God's arms]
Into God's arms, my friend.
He'll give you freedom,
A fire that never ends. -

Verse 5
For true adventure, come and find a path to lead you so much higher,
The empty life you'll leave behind, filled now with God's sacred fire,
No more, no more hi-gh wire.
No more, no more hi-gh wire.
No more, no more hi-gh wire.
