Without A Net

when the night is swollen
ready to burst
hard to swallow
in this heat you're dying of thirst
when you're seeing red
passions underfed
and the hunger's churning within
long repressed desires
rage like forest fires
as they burn through your skin

without a net
without a net
I am falling
without a net
without a net
I will fall
fall into your arms

when your pulse pounds rhythms into your brain
'cause the light at the end of the tunnel's a train
so we jump aboard with the pedals floored
red hot engine choking on coal
there's no turning back as it melts the track
and it thunders out of control

without a net
without a net
I am falling
without a net
without a net
I will fall
fall into your arms

the choice is clear
there is no choice
I see your face
I hear your voice
I can face the fear
I can face the doubt
I know one way in
but no way out

the circus is back in town
all alone on the high wire never look down
'cause the fear inside
can twist love into a tightrope ride
just relax
what's done is done
you can't hesitate
it's too late

without a net
without a net
I am falling
without a net
without a net
I will fall
fall into your arms
