lyrics

AMBER'S HIGH WIRE BLUES

She said, “I am an acrobat
Walking around on a high wire act
Stumbling somewhere between the present and the past”
She said, “I know there’s no going back
With the first goddamned step you’re committed to act
It don’t seem to me that the past stays past
So I swear the distance from here to there ain’t so vast”

So if you’re out there on the ropes
And it feels like a long way to go
And the men you meet keep on buying drinks
To keep themselves from feeling anything
When you’re out there on the ropes
We all know you really just wanna go home
But you smile polite and try to say something nice
And wait for the morning to see you home

I said, “I ain’t ever been an acrobat
Cause I’m afraid of the heights on the high wire act
But I know how it feels when it all gets too real
So you try to move forward cause you know there’s no going back”

Cause when I’m out there on the road
And it feels like a long way to go
And the friends that I meet keep on pouring me drinks
Cause they know that I remember everything
So I’m out there on the road
And I don’t know which way to go home
So I smile polite, try not to fuck up their night
And wait for the Lord to take me home
