Ben Watt – Balanced on a Wire Lyrics


Ben Watt – Balanced on a Wire Lyrics

Nineteen years old
Life in front of you
Everything on hold
Feels like you’re balanced on a wire
Do you risk it all right here?
You have a fear of being discarded
But the unguarded are the ones
They say, “Find love”

People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment seems so narrow sometimes
People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment looms so large sometimes

You’ve been hurt before, but who hasn’t?
You feel insecure, but who doesn’t?
It’s all or nothing now
How do you decide?
You’re overstrung and expectant
You feel strong
You feel new
What should you?
Open up and to yourself be true

People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment seems so narrow sometimes
People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment looms so large sometimes
What do you do
What do you say
When yourself is in the way?
What do you say
What do you do
When in the foreground it’s just you, you, you?
Only you

You strum on the moon
Is it gone?
You strum on the moon
Is it gone?
You’re balanced on a wire
You have a chance
Is it gone?
You have a chance
Is it gone?
You’re balanced on a wire
You’re balanced on a wire

People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment seems so narrow sometimes
People say, “Live in the moment”
But the moment looms so large sometimes

You’re balanced on a wire (You have a chance, is it gone?)
You’re balanced on a wire (You strum on the moon, is it gone?)
You’re balanced on a wire (You have a chance, is it gone?)
You’re balanced on a wire (You strum on the moon, is it gone?)
