​Tightrope

This song is by Illy and appears on the album Cinematic (2013).

I was like what you want me to do?
She was like what you want me to choose?
I was like well I didn't say that, but you know
Help me help you
I'm on the balance beam to keep you happy
Or say fuck it, stay mad at me
Know how that goes, drink, fight, patch things up in the back of a taxi
She can skate thin ice on wheels and not once get wet
She could walk five miles in heels not one foot out of step
And I swear I'll leave you swept, off your feet it's just our guess
I'm falling hard on myself here, yeah over my head

Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold
And I could be wrong but I don't know I don't know!

Headed for the deep end, Thursday we fight and forget it by the weekend
Fast learner, I figured out quick
With her it's not the getting it's the keeping
'Cause she's a gem, so everyone wants her shinning with them
Gettin' my bulldog on bro
Mind your step, keep it on your side of the fence
I play my demo's one last once
Smile if she likes it, laugh if it sucks!
Cold blooded, she the first in my corner
But now, what's that if it ain't called love
When it's all said and done, baby and happy till my heads spun
So I might get lucky
I might get none
Like I'm right back at square one!

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold
And I can't help but feel that I'm about to lose control!
Yeah, it's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with a blind fold,
Rolling with my eyes closed, whoa
It's like I'm walking on a tight rope
And I could be wrong
But I don't know, I don't know!

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold
And I can't help but feel that I'm about to lose control

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with a blindfold,
Rolling with my eyes closed
It's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And I could be wrong, and I could be wrong

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope
And every step could be the one where I fall
It's like I'm running with a blindfold
And I can't help but feel that I'm about to lose control!

It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, running with a blindfold
Rolling with my eyes closed
Whoa
It's like I'm walking on a tightrope, and I could be wrong
But I don't know I don't know
