Stevie Ray Vaughn


Caught up in the whirlwind,
 can't catch my breath
Knee deep in hot water,
broke out in cold sweat
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race
Feels like I'm losin' time, at a breakneck pace

Afraid of my own shadow, in the face of grace
Heart full of darkness, spotlight on my face
There was love all around me,
but I was looking for revenge
Thank God it never found me,
would have been the end

(I was) Walkin' the tight rope,
 steppin on my friends
Walkin' the tight rope, (it)
was a shame and a sin
Walkin' the tight rope,
between wrong and right
Walkin' the tight rope,
both day and night

Lookin' back in front of me,
in the mirror's grin
Through eyes of love I see,
I'm really lookin at a friend
We've all had our problems,
that's the way life is
My heart goes out to others,
who are there to make amends

We've been walkin' the tightrope
Trying to make it
Walkin' the tight rope
Every day and every night
Walkin' the tight rope
Bring it all around
Walkin' the tight rope
From the lost to found
Walkin' the tight rope
Streched around the world
Walkin' the tight rope
Save the boys and girls
Walkin' the tight rope
Let's make it right
Walkin' the tight rope
Do it, do it tonight
Walkin the tightrope

Matthew 7:13-14
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who
 find it are few.
