Lyrics:

I wanna take so far
       but they don't want to let us out
       But they do, they do, they do
       I don't wanna walk on that highwire
       They ain't gonna let us down
       But they do, they do, they do

What I could never believe in
       I was never really even
       And I forgot about the cost
       And then I got lost, I got lost, I got lost, I got lost

Didn't really wanna live it over
       Or even wanna live it down
       I do, I do, I do

"SOLO"

What I could never believe in
       I was never really even
       And I forgot about the cost
       And then I got lost, I got lost, I got lost, I got lost

Didn't really wanna live it over
       Or even wanna live it down
       I do, I do, I do
       I do, I do, I do
       I do, Oh, I do

About the artist behind Highwire:

The Gin Blossoms are an alternative rock band formed in 1987, in Tempe, Arizona. They took their name from a photo of W.C. Fields which bore the caption "W.C. Fields with gin blossoms," referring to the actor's gin-ravaged nose. The band, who were musically weaned on The Byrds and Tom Petty, released three albums and had several hits in the mid 1990s, before breaking up in 1997. Five years later in 2002, the band reunited, released a DVD, resumed touring, and promised a fourth album. Major Lodge Victory, the Gin Blossoms' first album in ten years, was released on August 8, 2006 on the Hybrid Recordings label.
