Tightrope

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double TroubleBuy this song

Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in cold sweat
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race
Feels like I'm losing, at a breakneck pace

Afraid of my own shadow, in the face of grace
Heart full of darkness, spotlight on my face
There was love all around me, but I was looking for revenge
Thank God it never found me, would have been the end

Walkin' the tight rope, steppin on my friends
Walkin' the tight rope, was a shame and a sin
Walkin' the tight rope, between wrong and right
Walkin' the tight rope, both day and night

Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's grin
Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin at a friend
We've had all our problems, that's the way life is
My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends

(Walkin' the tightrope) Trying to make it right
Every day and every night
Bring it all around
From the lost to found
Stretched around the world
Save the boys and girls
Let's make it right
Do it, do it tonight
Walkin the tightrope
