Bareilles, Sara - Tightrope Lyrics




Some people long for a life that is simple and planned, tied with a ribbon
Some people won't sail the sea, 'cause they're safer on land
To follow what's written but I'd follow you to the great unknown
Off to a world we call our own

Hand in my hand and we promise to never let go
We're walking a tightrope
High in the sky we can see the whole world down below
We're walking a tightrope
Never sure, never know how far we could fall

But it's all an adventure that comes with a breathtaking view
Walking a tightrope with you

Mountains and valleys and all that will come in between
Desert and ocean
You pulled me in and together we're lost in a dream
Oh, he's in motion so I risk it all
Just to be with you
And I'll risk it all for this life we choose

Hand in my hand and you promise to never let go
We're walking a tightrope
High in the sky we can see the whole world down below
We're walking a tightrope
Never sure, but you catch me if I should fall

Well, it's all an adventure that comes with a breathtaking view
Walking the tightrope with you

  2. Eric C

    Eh I liked the original BC it sounded and was actually slowly and sung better whoever this girl is she sucks pretty much at singing it BC this one sounds like crap and like they didn't want her to sing it good and like she wanted to actually sung this also so yea its just pretty much OK thats it tho plus she sounded like an old lady trying to sound young and awful also sorry I'm a critic for everything now lol

  3. 취안나

    WHY IS SHE SO UNDERRATED I'M SO MAD

    Some people long for a life that is simple and planned
    Tied with a ribbon
    Some people won't sail the sea 'cause they're safer on land
    To follow what's written
    But I'd follow you to the great unknown
    Off to a world we call our own

    Hand in my hand and we promised to never let go
    We're walking the tightrope
    High in the sky
    We can see the whole world down below
    We're walking the tightrope
    Never sure, never know how far we could fall
    But it's all an adventure
    That comes with a breathtaking view
    Walking the tightrope

    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you

    Mountains and valleys, and all that will come in between
    Desert and ocean
    You pulled me in and together we're lost in a dream
    Always in motion
    So I risk it all just to be with you
    And I risk it all for this life we choose

    Hand in my hand and you promised to never let go
    We're walking the tightrope
    High in the sky
    We can see the whole world down below
    We're walking the tightrope
    Never sure, will you catch me if I should fall?
    Well, it's all an adventure
    That comes with a breathtaking view
    Walking the tightrope

    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you
    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    With you, ooh-ooh-ooh
    With you

  5. Debora Irias

    Carson has better taste than me 😅

  6. Kadreanna Walker

    Ok, this is good and all, but is nobody finna bring up that this is the same beat as Bubbly by Colby Caillet!? It is so similar that I said "Can you count me in" in the beginning... just me?

  7. Tiana Miles

    Sorry, this version doesn't beat the original, I'm not sayin it's bad, but it's just completely different from one another😩

  8. Chelo Gutierrez

    This is waaaaaay better than the original. You can't change my mind

  9. Kisama

    I love this song a lot. It's one good song many people overlooked on all the songs of this movie's soundtrack. I'm glad there's Sara Bareilles made a version and impression that could describe her way of singing the song, and she rock it w/ complete justice.

  10. Emily McDonald

    Lovely soulful voice Amazing special gift when you snig wow

  11. Emily McDonald

    That ment everything to you I felt that with you singing was inspired me I watched the movie greatest show Man wow natural tlante from you great look s

  12. Amanda Smith

    Tightrope, million dreams and never enough melted me in a chocolate puddle😍😍😄😄😄

  13. • ughman •

    don't come fr me after saying this but, I think this is better than the original

  14. Marco that was BEEyoncé lol

    i can't imagine.. .LoL

  15. Plus Ultra Negative Mega

    I'm a fan of Sara Bareilles and I know most people liked this interpretation. But, for me, Tightrope sung by Michelle Williams has this magical and wistful feeling which you can't find in this rendition.

  16. Alka Kindo

    It's so awesome The Reimagined collection has all the best artists sing the tracks. P!nk, Sara, Kelly, James. This is so overwhelming.

  17. Melissa De Jesus Fa de Megan Hilty e Abby número 1

    My queen

  18. Nurul Fitriana

    whoaaaa.. it gives me shiver

  19. Don Shuler

    Sara your voice is magical

  20. Marlene C

    I honestly thought this was a song written by Sara for the movie when I first heard her version. It has Sara’s lyrics and melody written all over it. Only found out it wasn’t from the comments. Great choice by her to cover. Both versions are great BTW.

  21. just me

    ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🔥🔥🔥♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  22. Blackpink 233

    Love you Sara, love your voice

  23. PapillonOne

    Love this....very beautiful version and the slower tempo allows for more thoughtful contemplation of the words.

  24. Danimals90

    This version is nice, but in my opinion it doesn't have that "walking on a tightrope" feel that the tempo of the original has. It's feels more suited for a modern setting, instead of when the movie is set.

  25. Oppa Franzt

    sarah nailed it. its beautiful. am I the only one who think this version reminds me of sarah mcLachlan ?

  26. CHiA SEED

    This gives me such a new perspective on "Tightrope"...
    I really do like this song, though...

  27. nurul azizah

    the lyrics and the song fit perfectly into Sarah's voice. ... love it!!

  28. NONE

    Brendon Urie = P.T Barnum
    Sara Bareilles = Charity Barnum
    James Arthur = Phillip Carlyle
    Anne-Marie = Anne Wheeler
    Kesha = Bearded Lady

  29. Kenneth Yarbrough

    loved this song from the beginning

  30. Savannah Nason

    "Hamilton mixtape side eyes Greatest Showman reimagined" Hmm okay queen, you gonna do me like this?"

    JK they're both beautiful.

  31. Pete Lewis

    Just beautifullllllllllllll

  32. Blythe

    My mom haven't watch The Greatest Showman yet We were singing A Million Dreams and she said "The real singer who sang the song was P!NK" i said it was a reimagined song and she kept saying "No"

    It doesn't mean that the early reimagined song is the real one , it's because they knew the songs of The Greatest Showman that's why you might say that the songs were been sang by reimagined singers who wanted to reimagine the songs when they are in the Movie.

  33. Carmelo Acibar

    Wooow!!!! amazing song😍😍😍😍😍

  34. J Miranda

    I love this song

  35. Melody Joy Meo

    I see Sara bareilles name I don’t even need to listen cuz I fucking know it’ll be good lmao ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ huge fan
    However I had to
    Listen and this is beautiful

  36. PepperRabbit

    idk to me the piano seems out of sync for this version in the beginning.

  37. Chloe

    I'm just glad that the "ooh" from the chorus of the original song has been changed. They annoy me so much in the original, but they're both beautiful renditions nevertheless

  38. musicworks tujuh

    I love the original style

  39. Alexandra Invernici

    She has a really good voice, but I am so not digging the sad vibe. I think the lyrics match more the original tone. Michelle did a tremendous job on this one 😍

  40. khyati ravate

    A) This was so wonderful! I love both version so very much and just Sara is so amazing I can't.

    B) With the harmonies it kind if sounds like something out of Adventure Time XD

  41. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

    This is just an OPINION. I think that Reimagened is like not bad but like a little bit worse. I like the original better

  42. Kendra Johnson

    Hearing this reminds me of the musical, Waitress, which contains songs written by Sara Bareilles

  43. Melissa Rohr

    I love you Sara but this wasn't you best work



    I still love you♡♡♡♡

  44. It's Lae Lae

    I like the original oohs better. This version was great but the original was better.

  45. Carlos Alejandro Alvarenga

    Omg I didnt know Sara was in this yessssss

  46. Veronica Heather

    I think this is better than the original!

  47. John Samama

    An underrated artist on an underrated song..
    Underrated Masterpiece

  48. Izuna Amano

    when I heard this version for the very first time I thought the tempo, yes, it didn't fit well on this song (like other people opinions), BUT after I replayed it again and again and again, I couldn't agree more with my first thought. This version is always be in my everyday playlist till now. Thanks Sara for this beautiful 'reimagined' 💕💕💕

  49. The Crazy Crew

    I would love if Adele sung this song she would sound amazing and would fit in the movie better. Edit: anyone agree?

  50. Lee Coffey

    Sarah nailed it!

  51. Ari

    I love Sara Bareilles. I read her book and saw her musical Waitress she is amazing

  52. Kelley Ryan

    This is great sound but I love the original version than the reimagined version

  53. toystorylover52

    Love this version! The original is pretty good too, but Sara put her spin to it! Good job Sara!

  54. Caramel Camel Green Grenade

    It’s like a song for an alternate ending: if Barnum maybe never returned and Charity was left all alone with her two kids, singing this song in memory...

    ...shit what have I done

    But seriously tho, it sounds like a song that you sing as a lullaby while at the same time a farewell song in a graveyard or smth.

  55. Ron Riggs

    Too Sara McLaughlin-like and Michele Williams' version blows this one away!!!!

  56. sheila lacro

    ❤️❤️❤️

  57. VeryVeryVery18

    Can she be any more amazing as a singer?! I mean this was magical and sad in a way. I love you Sara!!!

  58. Bill Engelhardt

    The piano if off, and she is so off key, its so awful. she ruined the song. ):

  59. Diego do Amaral

    Ruined my favorite song of the music.

  60. Karen Rathbun

    Perfection

  61. yeehaw buster

    I love how people did reimagines of the greatest showman, so beautiful

  62. Gary Urbany

    Illegeal

  63. Sam Flower

    I'm addicted to listening to this.

  64. Caleb Cain

    The music is beautiful, and Sara did a great job reimagining it.

    It does bother me a little though that she sings slightly off the beat sometimes.

  65. Beatrice Toscano

    A masterpiece

  66. Tayla Joo

    I love who they chose to reimagine all songs! Sara Bareiles OMG that's so perfect!

  67. Castielus Aulus

    This song should have been great but I don't really like the off-sync style. It feels weird to hear the vocal and music chase each other -,-' Really too bad :(

  68. Skelett Mus

    Not a very good singer, my advice is to not bother with her again Atlantic Records. The views speak for themself.

  69. Neon Pink Queen

    I am a huge fan of the original. Like, it's a favorite of mine. This version certainly is nice however it does not compare to the original.

  70. Joseph

    So out of all the songs in the movie, this was my least favorite. And I just don't like Sara Bareiles's music. So it is mind blowing to me that I absolutely love this version of the song! It sounds amazing! Excellent job all around!

  71. sufi sy

    this is really good song arrangement, hmmm, this is higher level from sara career, i love it, really, i mean it

  72. Camille Faith

    This cover give me chills. I love it!!!!! 💖

  73. Delta Liana Hia

    Some people long for a life that is simple and planned
    Tied with a ribbon
    Some people won't sail the sea 'cause they're safer on land
    To follow what's written
    But I'd follow you to the great unknown
    Off to a world we call our own
    Hand in my hand and we promised to never let go
    We're walking the tightrope
    High in the sky
    We can see the whole world down below
    We're walking the tightrope
    Never sure, never know how far we could fall
    But it's all an adventure
    That comes with a breathtaking view
    Walking the tightrope
    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    With you
    Mountains and valleys, and all that will come in between
    Desert and ocean
    You pulled me in and together we're lost in a dream
    Always in motion
    So I risk it all just to be with you
    And I…

  74. JustListener

    Does anyone else get Winter Song vibes from this? Really enjoying the Reimangined album.

  75. Addisyn Adkins

    I’m crying 😭😭🙏🏻🙏🏻

  76. Harry Yrrah

    This one is definately the greatest song reimagined from the album. It is so surprising how Sara did such an amazing job with the song. The original version is perfect, but so it is this one

  77. Lea Lascuña

    Michelle Williams did great and this version of Sara's is equally great and much sadder while Michelle's was hopeful ♥♥♥

  78. radel caindoy

    The tempo adds a new flavor and emotion to the song. Kudos!

  79. Mali Gottfried

    i need live versions of all of these!!

  80. Alyssa Layug

    It feels like I am listening to a bonus track in the Blessed Unrest album. ♥

  81. hiatus mode

    Sara Bareilles,Kelly clarkson,Zac brown band, P!atd and PINK??? Are you’ll kidding 😭😭...All my favourites in one album and im dying

  82. Michelle Gold

    I loved this song as it was. Sara is a brilliant singer, but the waltz tempo really added to the feel of the story line and song as well as the character

  83. Jolene Jolly

    Wow, Sara REALLY made this song her own. I don't personally like it ( I love the original so much!) but I have to give it her for really recreating it!

  84. AYZLE

    I once knew a girl who loves this song and I just took her for granted. I've regretted it though

  85. Julia E

    from doing the hamildrop “dear theodosia reprise” to this🤩 u are slaying the game

    Q cosa más bella coño

  95. Reinada Apsari

    OMG SARA ✨

  96. Honey Lemon

    I love this song, and I love Sara! ❤️❤️❤️

  97. Kate Schneider

    I actually like this version. I like that it has more of a calming effect. I am not a fan of the song in the movie, never really have been, but I like it now because out this.

  98. Christopher James Willington

    Didn’t the greatest showman come out like last year?

  99. Jules Guiang
