Track 4

Reggae For Love

This Tightrope

Every evening as the sun goes down
I sit on my back porch wondering
How is it, you don't talk much anymore
And when you do you stay
behind closed doors

You say one thing and then
you do another
You say today when you
mean tomorrow
While I'm crying, you smile
Somehow the truth gets lost in lies

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

Every evening I'm a circus clown
Stepping on this tightrope up and down
Sometimes I just don't get it right
Swaying to the left, then to the right
Looking down full of fright
Somehow something doesn't feel right

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

How can love slip by so mystically
First you have it only to get down
on your knees
And pray and pray
And pray and pray

Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love
Hanging on this tightrope of love

This Tightrope
