05. Tightrope

Little Bird
by Misty Edwards


Verse 1
Canít pretend that I am blind
Canít go back and erase the mind
Naivety and wide-eyed wonder are far from me
But at least now I see
Itís like Iím walking on a tightrope
Stretched across the universe
Way too high to go back from where I came
Overwhelmed at the miles Iíve yet to tame
Iím too far in to turn around now
And Iíve got too far to go to sit down now
Too far in, too far to go
Verse 2
Surrounded by blackness mingled with stars
Keeping a sacred balance hoping I donít fall
Donít want to fall, donít want to walk
Want to disappear like cowards talk
No, no, no, no, no
Verse 3
Hanging there in space my toes gripping the rope
Itís the only hope
That golden thread that got me here
Will be the same
That brings me to the end
I know, I know Youíre with me
You surround me, You surround me
Your invisible hand is around, around
In this uncomfortable in-between
Where Iím too far in to turn around now

Behind the Song:
"I originally wrote ďTight RopeĒ as a poem about feeling too far to turn around from whatever it is you signed up for in life. Sometimes thereís an overwhelming discomfort being in between, where youíre feeling lonely, empty and wanting to quit, knowing there are still so many miles ahead, then realizing that you canít because youíve already invested so much. But even when we feel stretched across the universe and thereís black surrounded by blackness, Heís still around us and Heís going to carry us through this uncomfortable in between, no matter how long it takes." - Misty
