lyrics

Astelle and Matt they'd once shared a life
Travelling circuses, walking hire wires
Astelle was learning, Matt had taught her the lot
The two lovers were tying the knot.

Night after night the curtains went up,
The crowd cheered when they could bear to look
When Astelle would fall Matt would catch her in time
Together they both would share in the light

(She learned) to walk down the wire he'd taught her to fall right
She'd close both her eyes and take it slow

Any risks taken on, he'd just take alone, til' one night
One mistake her love couldn't survive.

Astelle went numb, the crowd left her cryin'
For a break in the wire had cost Matt his life
Now his ghost's in her head when she closes her eyes
He talks to her when she's up walking the wires
For the curtain it never came down
