On the Wire

lyrics

I’ve never been to war, but I know what fighting’s for
Every time I see that look inside your eye
I’ve never troubled much, I’ve never tried to touch
All the ones that lay asunder and aside

Aw come on, drag me down into the mire
Aw come on, you lift me up out of the fire
I wanna dance with you out on the wire

Gypsy I beg thee, when you sing to me
You spin my center till I’m one with everything
Come on entangle me, strangle my sanity
Until you voice forever echoes ever rings

Aw come on, drag me down into the mire
Aw come on, you lift me up out of the fire
I wanna dance with you out on the wire

You are a mystery, oh how you carry me
You go in deep, you take me wide
All you impart to me, I take so gratefully
And may I never in this life be satisfied

Aw come on, drag me down into the mire
Aw come on, you lift me up out of the fire
I wanna dance with you out on the wire
