Script, The - Man On A Wire Lyrics




Who would've thought that I'd be here by myself?
Who would've thought that you'd be bad for my health?
Now I know, now I know I'm just a man on a wire

Who would've thought about the cause and effect?
Yesterday's love is now tomorrow's regret
Now I know, now I know I'm just a man on a wire

No, I can't look down
I'm tryna fight the feeling
I will fall to the ground
If I ever see you
'Cause I feel like I'm walkin' a tightrope

My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

Who would've thought I'd see you with someone else?
Who would've thought that I'd be in such a mess?
Now you know, now you know I'm just a man on a wire

But I walk that line
I'll try to keep my senses
Make it to the other side
I know the consequences
And I feel like I'm walkin' a tightrope

My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

The higher it gets, oh
The more I miss the ground
No safety nets, oh
Now you're not around

I have to keep walking
To keep me from falling down
Feels like I'm walkin' a tightrope

My heart is in my throat
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you
And I've got my eyes closed
As long as the wind blows
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you

'Cause I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire
I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

  56. Andrew Daley

    An awesome band in an awesome city, Cape Town! Lekkergoed.

  57. Steevio C

    All I can think about the meaning of this song is about the journey to make your crush to be your bf/gf, the wire represents how small the opportunity but all you have to do is keep walking even though it so risky and scary, and if you fail,you will hurts so bad. That is why the only one you can count is on a phrase,it goes "im counting on high hopes to get me over you".

  58. tapyoka

    This is giving me acrophobia 😱 (late to The Script party)

  59. Demac Siahaan
