Lyrics

Follow the tightrope walker
He never looks to the ground
We don’t know what he’s thinking
He’s gonna go down swinging if he can’t figure this out

He’s gonna hold himself steady
Til he gets to the other side
You’re gonna hold your breath
Hoping he does alright

He don’t move cuz somebody tells him to
And we don’t see what he sees
He don’t mind laying everything on the line
And he don’t do it for the money
And he don’t do it for the fame
And as soon as he reaches safety
He’s gonna do it again do it again

Do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it again

Some people think he’s crazy
Some people want him to fall
He won’t show no reaction to any distraction at all
There’s only move needed
It’s never been so clear
It’s just one foot in front of the other now with no fear

He don’t move cuz somebody tells him too
And we don’t see what he sees
He don’t mind laying everything on the line
And he don’t do it for the money
And he don’t do it for the fame
And as soon as he reaches safety
He’s gonna do it again do it again

Do it again and do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it again … do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it again … do it again…yeah

Follow the tightrope walker
Let the noise fade away
Bend with the breeze and reach for the sky each day
Focus on where you’re going
No matter where you’ve been
Keep yourself loose and in balance
Just like him

And do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it again… do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it again… do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it again… do it again
Do it and a do it and a do it again
Oh do it and a do it and a do it again
Do it again…do it again
