Lyrics
Listen - trapped again
Love on a lead is what you need
Love on a leash is what you wish
Love on a tightrope is what you get

Love on a steep slope you ain't seen nothing yet
When you smile, that wide wide smile
That tiger smile, I'm trapped again
Be my dog, be my pet, like a nervous tic

You just won't quit, like a nervous tic you just won't quit
You don't need a doctor, you need a vet
And when you laugh, your crazy laugh
That wild cat laugh, I'm trapped again

Love on a tightrope, love on a tightrope
Our love's on a steep slope
Love on a tightrope
No don't give up hope ''cause when you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are
Don't give up hope our love's on a tightrope
Like a tiger cat you're where it's at
Like a crocodile along the Nile

So strange and wild, some kind of reptile
Love on a lead is what you need
And when you smile, that wide wild smile
That tiger smile, I'm trapped again

Trapped again
They say never bite the hand that feeds
Just one look and my heart bleeds
Love on a tightrope, love on a tightrope

You know, our love's on a steep slope
Love on a tightrope
No don't give up hope, ''cause when you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are

Don't give up hope our love's on a tightrope
Animal eyes - like a real good time
Animal lips it's a perfect crime
Animal hair it just ain't fair

Like an animal
You're an animal
