28 Lines Go A Long Way

I'm on a wire
Up a thousand feet high
And it only takes one step
For it all to decide
Sky or ground
Lost or found
I have to get back to the inside

Left to drag
My feet step by step
And I'm not daring
So I haven't lept
The line in front
Is it what I want
I have thought so long and wept

On the other side exposed
Feeling frozen emotions
All eyes on me
Like a sudden devotion
To my strange
Can't it change
I call for a motion

Done with the hate
And the decision for
Brush it off just
Like I have before
Cry if I must
Steel the trust
And decide to live for more.
