From the recording Sally in the Doorway
Livin’ on the edge and you don’t know why
Why is it always do or die?
Tell me now - How you gonna cope?
Got to keep your balance up on a tightrope
Oh - Watch out
One false step and you hit the ground
Far below hear them shout
You’re walkin’ on a high wire - Don’t look down
Over the world you swing and sway
Left foot right foot day by day
Do you ever wonder?
Will you make it through or be torn asunder?
Yes, you’re playing a dangerous game
What a pity, what a crying shame
Hush now, baby, don’t you cry
Rockin’ in the cradle way up high
Who’s gonna catch you if you fall?
Can you read the writing on the wall?
I’m falling, falling, falling
