A Delicate Balance
Lyrics: “A Delicate Balance”

Standing here above it all
How did I make this my home?
Left and right, I listen for the call
And I understand I’m all alone

And I walk the line with a delicate balance
on edge of fear
And I walk the line with a delicate balance
What keeps me here?

This is our only place in time
Might have known what I would find
Forget all of the tales
I don’t want to know how it feels to fail

And I walk the line with a delicate balance
on edge of fear
And I’m beside myself
And it’s another pain that keeps me here, whoa…

And I walk the line with a delicate balance
on edge of fear
And I walk the line
And it’s another pain that keeps me here
Oh, it keeps me here.

Standing here above it all
How did I make this my home?
I still listen for the call
I realize I’m all alone

And I walk the line with a delicate balance
on edge of fear
And I’m beside myself
And it’s another pain, and I know that it’s real
It’s another pain it keeps me here.
