lyrics

Love Walks on a Wire

I had a bet with the devil
Love ain’t but a gambler
Three hearts on a slot machine

You came disguised as an angel
Dropped your golden armor
Ripped my heart and burned my skin

You plucked my strings like a goddess
Wrapped your chords around me
Took me to the Promised Land

Your fingers weave like a spider
Crawling like a cobra
Naked on a river bank

Pick me up, take me high
Love walks on a wire
Open your arms out wide
Let’s drift through the sky
I’m gonna hold you tight
Stand straight on the wire
Come set my soul aflight

Under the high moon of summer
Through the desert city
Gambling with the dice of love

Two lovers walk on a tightrope
A player and a singer
Fifty feet above the ground

You’re like a world full of secrets
Deeper than the ocean
Welling up behind your bangs

Why don’t you pull back the curtains
Share with me your mysteries
Stand against the tides of hell
