Good Times

Look at you, the girl who knows
How short life is; how fast it goes
You laugh so hard at those that try
Content to watch them all run by

Yea, yea
Good times hanging by a thin wire
Good times hanging by a thin wire
Good times hanging by a thin wire

Are you sure there's a thrill to it all?
This reckless pleasure and wanting more
Can you keep your balance and not look down
At all the frightened faces on the ground

Yea, yea
Good times hanging by a thin wire
Good times hanging by a thin wire
Good times hanging by a thin wire

Keep on trying to convert
The world away
From the day to day
What can't you face?

Good times hanging by a thin wire.

Sometimes it feels like your mocking me
As if yours is the only way to be free
All's excess and pleasure with you
You've found your own way; now it has to be true

Yea, yea
Good times hanging by a thin wire.
Good times hanging by a thin wire.
Good times hanging by a thin wire

Good times hanging by a thin wire.
Good times hanging by a thin wire.
Good times hanging by a thin wire
