lyrics

Without you now…
I’m a steamboat in the night
I’m a bird flying out of sight
I’m a wheel that’s come to rest
or a heart without the chest

like a fire out on the plains
or the road after it rains
like the still without the storm
or a shape without the form

and while you live it up
I’m in here giving up

baby, I’m out on wire

And since you’re gone…
I’m a word without the song
I’m a right without the wrong
or an eye without the sight
or a sky without the light
like a sea without the shore
just this thought and nothing more
like a light about to change
or my mind all rearranged

and while you’re waking up
I’m in here breaking up

baby, I’m out on a wire

you come floating down
and lightly touch the ground
and I wake slowly from a dream
knowing things aren’t always as they seem

and you’re gone…
I can hardly stand up straight
every night I stay out late
I got one thing on my mind
watch it play and then rewind

like a still before the storm
or a shape without the form
like a wheel that’s come to rest
or a heart without the chest

and while you live it up
I’m in here giving up

baby, I’m out on a wire

When you feel you can’t take no more
can’t keep the wolves far from your door
and every day’s an endless road
a to be continued episode
