Well here comes heaven
Walking down the street again
Gonna pick you up
Knock you off your feet again
Liking a living nightmare in paradise
Like a fist out of hell
With a grip like a vice
On the high wire, you can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
Caught a glimpse of your sad sad face
Somewhere special
Do you know the place
Where every fairytale turns real
When you start to feel
The way that I feel
On the highwire, you can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down

Stretching out your hand, reaching out for friendliness
Staring out the window, thinking what a dirty mess
A tidal wave in time and space
When you can't fall it's such a waste
The walls of doubt are falling down
Running deep with the music loud
Flying high, don't look down
It's been so long since we walked in the moonlight
On the highwire, you can't reach me

You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down
Baby I'm wired
