Balance Beam [Live]
by Blue October



Haven't been quite the same, so sure the story of my life would never change,
but in a bright-eyed way, I rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song I'm about to sing,
Cuz it's about, a girl, I hardly even know.
So this is not another love song, just a list of things that I should know, and everyone should know that:

One- You gotta take it kinda slowly!
Two- You gotta hurry up and make your move!
Three- You gotta tell her that she's pretty!
Four- You gotta be the perfect gentleman, when you shake the wall, you gotta make it bend,
Yeah, you gotta show her that she the balance beam.
And I keep falling all around her fairytale. (fairytale)

We took a walk in the rain,
I suggested, she confessed,
there's a heart nearby, to cast that shame.
Stay cool, but I'm giddy like a school boy.
You gotta handle with care: this is not a toy.
Then gradually we touched, although our clothes were wet, we sat and smiled.
I thought I'd never smiled so much,
the first kiss always says the most:

One- You gotta take it kinda slowly!
Two- You gotta hurry up and make your move!
Three- You gotta tell her that she's pretty!
Four- You gotta be the perfect gentleman, when you shake the wall you gotta make it bend,
Yeah, you gotta show her that she's the balance beam.
And I keep, falling all around her fairytale.
(fairytale)
I wanna sing to you

And everyone should KNOW that:

One- You gotta take it kinda slowly!
Two- You gotta hurry up and make your move!
Three- You gotta tell her that she's pretty!
Four- You gotta be the perfect gentleman, when you shake the wall you gotta make it bend,
Yeah, you gotta show her that she's the balance beam.
And I keep, falling all around her fairytale.

My fairytale.
Some kind of fairytale.
Some kind of fairytale.
And, everyone should know that!
