  G           D        Em
I hand you my ball and chain
         G            D          C
You just hand me that Same old refrain
    G
I'm walking on a wire
    D
I'm walking on a wire
        Am       G  Dsus4 Cadd9
And I'm falling---

I wish I could please you tonight
But my medicine just won't come right
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
        Am       G
And I'm falling---

D        A
Too many steps to take
C#m      G#m
Too many spells to break
Bm       C#               F#m
Too many nights awake and no one else
D                 A
This grindstone's wearing me
C#m            G#m
Your claws are tearing me
C#m          B
Don't use me endlessly
     A   Em    Bm  D         A
It's too long, Too long to myself

Where's the justice, and where's the sense
When all the pain's on my side of the fence
I'm walking on a wire
I'm walking on a wire
And I'm falling---
