Sophie Strauss - Big Top Lyrics


Sophie Strauss – Big Top Lyrics

Tonight we pretend to be tight rope walkers
umbrellas balanced in our hands
our legs intertwine
and slack goes the line
we are miles too high to see land

And it’s all for them
It’s only for them

So we’ll give em what they came for
yeah we’ll give em what they paid for
and we both will wake up fine

Today the rate is ten cents a head
but baby only has five
she rode here for days
to get lost in the haze
only to watch through the tent from outside

and it’s all for her
yeah it’s only for her

so we’ll give her what she came for
oh we’ll give her what she paid for
and we both will wake up fine

And these cracker jacks and nursery rhymes
are gnawing at me all the time
i’ll take it back i’d say we’re fine
you can call me yours
i wish i could say that you
were mine

Yesterday we were buried and born
our futures sealed in the ring
we lock at the knees
and we pull at the seams
hoping it’s quick when we fall from our strings

and it’s all for you
yeah it’s only for you

But i’ll give you what you came for
Oh i’ll give you what you paid for
it feels like there’s plenty of time

For us to give em what they came for
this can’t be what we were made for
but i know we’ll both wake up just fine
