Tightrope

Tightrope

Electric Light Orchestra

They say some days you're gonna win
They say some days you're gonna lose
I tell you I got news for you
Your losin' all the time you never win
If you believe that's how it's gonna be I'd better
Put you down
Get off your tightrope up there come down on
The ground you gotta save me now
You better turn around.
When I looked around, I was heading down,
Won't somebody throw me down a line.
They say some days you gotta give
They say some day s you gotta take
If that's the way it's gotta be
Roll it over and you will see
The city streets are full of people going
Nowhere making time
The change from night to day is really only hours
It's just along the line can't you see the sign
When I looked around, I was heading down
Won't somebody throw me down a line
I want to look you straight in the eye
I want to tell you how I really feel
I can feel the wheels turnin' round
Won't somebody throw me down a line
The city streets are full of people going
Nowhere making time
The change from night to day is really only hours
It's just along the line, can't you see the sign
When I closed my eyes, I was so surprised
Somebody had thrown me donw the line
Stopped me drownin'
