Tight Rope (Remastered 95) - Lyrics

Tight rope
leon russell
I'm up on the tightrope, one sides hate and one is hope
it's a circus game with you and me.

i'm up on the tightwire, linked by life and the funeral pyre
but the tophat on my head is all you see.
And the wire seems to be the only place for me
a comedy of errors and i'm falling

like a rubber neck giraffe, you look into my past
well, baby you're just to blind to see.
I'm up in the spotlight, oh does it feel right
the altitude seems to really get to me.
i'm up on the tightwire linked by life and the funeral pyre
putting on a show for you to see.

Writer(s): LEON RUSSELL
