Like Walking on a tight rope
or walking on a slack rope
walking on a line
yes a fine line it really is

It takes balance, it takes practice – dedication is what it takes
It takes perseverance, it takes belief – faith is what it takes

To stay up when the world thinks you’ll come tumbling down
To look ahead when every fibre in your body wants you to look on down
To stay steady and breathe deeply while your stomach’s churning round and round

So you stand out from the crowd – never mind the rest
You’re true to who you are – only give of your very best
No-one around to give you directive
You relish the new-found perspective

One foot in front of the other
One step at a time
One single breath every time
One moment in time
That’s all it is
That’s really all it takes

You balance, you practice – you refine your skills
You live, you experience – you enjoy the thrills
You stretch, you expand – you try something new
You climb, you soar – you enjoy the view

Like walking on a tight rope
or walking on a slack rope
walking on a line
yes a fine line it really is

It’s your rope
It’s your line
Yes your life is what it really is
