Alex Clare - Tightrope Lyrics

Life's a tightrope,
And you're standing on one toe.
Don't let the fear take hold of you,
You're bound to fall to the ground below.
Pick yourself up again,
Over the edge again,
Hold on to your hopes and dreams.
When all seems to be lost,
Don't start to count the costs,
Just go and begin again.

Tight rope walker, tight rope walker.

The only thing I'm sure of is, to have no fear at all,
Just go, keep on going on.
And the only thing that's certain is sometimes you're bound to fall,
Just go, keep on going on.

When all you work for,
Comes tumbling to the ground.
Don't let the sadness fill your heart,
Tomorrow may be a better day.
Lift your head up again,
You know you'll start again,
No matter what may come of it.
You know there's more to life,
I'm sure that you'll survive,
You know what you have to do.

Tight rope walker, tight rope walker.

The only thing I'm sure of is to have no fear at all,
Just go, keep on going on.
And the only thing that's certain is sometimes you're bound to fall,
Just go keep, on going on.

Who knows, who knows, who knows what may come tomorrow,
Who knows, who knows, who knows, what tomorrow may bring.
Who knows, who knows, who knows what may come tomorrow,
Who knows, who knows, who knows, what tomorrow may bring.

The only thing I'm sure of is to have no fear at all,
Just go, keep on going on,
And the only thing that's certain is sometimes you're bound to fall,
Just go, keep on going on [x2]

  11. slipperman420

    whats up with the sound quality?
    bum (scratch) bum tis (scratch) bum tis (scratch) bum (scratch)

    Christina Herrera

    slipperman420 its a cymbal idiot

    Daniel Stuber

    slipperman420 it's an aesthetic choice. it goes: bum tis (scratch) tis ... bumtisbum (scratch) tis. the scratch consistently falls on the third beat of the measure. and christina, he wasnt talking about the cymbal, dont be a tard.

  24. tkterran6

    we found where Chuck Norris's tears come from :) one man on the world.

  25. Le Crocodile

    It wouldn't, because Chuck Norris would immediately surrender.

  26. metroidprimefan18

    He looks MUCH better without that hipster-esque beret on.

  33. Fatalconnection1

    This man has inspired almost all my actions, as straight as I am, this man could sing me to homosexuality! I love you Mr. Clare!

  34. Shaniece Ricks

    I first heard about him last year 12' when Avengers was out an the commercial for Google came out!!! Love this guy now!!

  35. Galactra 777

    Each of Alex Clare's songs reminds me of Klaus from Vampire Diaries for some reason

  36. Ceejay Merrien

    Alex Clare's voice is just 'music to my ears'. His voice speaks so many words. So many memories brought back when his voice is heard. He is so amazing and his songs are just, wow. Speechless....

  37. NeHamilemisin

    this made me alive

  38. Tori Langille

  43. Melissa

    this man is truly amazing.. i love his music and his voice

  44. nik naraine

    I love his voice

  45. Joshua Klein

    It's so bad, the hipster in me wants to hate this guy just becasue of how much he gets played on the radio...fortunately he's extremely good to the point where I still enjoy him tremendously despite my own stupidity.

  46. Pat Brisson

    i love this guy!

  47. royalpeech

    So uplifting! Love love love it!!!

  48. MrGetthefuckup

    hahaha, probably not this one, been listening to a few of his other tunes that could be a possibility

  49. jibberingjon

    You going to make a highlight with this now?

  50. MrGetthefuckup

    it sounds like the bass wobbles you can make on ableton or other music software, or a chaos pad type thing

  51. MrGetthefuckup

    love this

  52. zumbaette

    Haha!! A lifetime movie commercial brought me here

  53. P J L

    If Adele had a male equivalent it would be Alex Clare!

  54. Kathy20102010

    A true talent to watch! : )

  55. cahman8

    The guy has some amazing talent. I just ran into a video this weekend. There are a lot of cool sounds and tones in his music. Can anyone tell me what is being used for that pulsating bass tone or what it is called. It sounds cool although he needs to be carefull of using it in to many songs. I agree with a lot of others, I'd like to hear him and Adelle together.

  56. james hall

    was this made with the windows 8 music maker?

  57. TheRealJadeSpade

    When I hear him (them) say "Tight-rope-walker", it reminds me of the Dresden Dolls' song "Modern Moonlight."
    "Wire cutters of the world...You know what to use to for...Spread the word to all the tight-rope-walker boys and girls...brace yourself for miracles! etc...

  58. Blakestefer

    fo sho. I heard him from a GoPro video before the IE9 commercial

  59. Christopher Tenney

    I'm sure he got more popular than IE9 did from that commercial.

  60. FallenIntoSpace

    Why is this guy so good? it's not even normal anymore.. Shivers all over. Seriously

  61. Nicola Cloud

    Love!!!!!!!! Inspirational.....

  62. SgtButterz702

    be careful with what you say... we don't need another internet war on our hands when they're all soooooooo amazing! :D

  63. cat

    i agree with you. :)

  64. Haydento0017

    Ok, lets not get over our head now.

  65. Loïs
