[Verse I]
G
 Who'd have thought that I'd be here by myself?
Bm
 Who'd have thought that you'd be bad for my health?
      C
Now I know,
                               G      D
now I know I'm just a man on a wire

 Who'd have thought about the 'cause and effect?

 Yesterday's love is not tomorrow's regret

I'm counting on high hopes to get me over you
                G

I'm a man on a wire, on a wire

[Verse II]
G
 Who'd have thought I'd see you with someone else?
Bm
 Who'd have thought that I'd be in such a mess?
        C
Now you know,
                                 G     D
now you know I'm just a man on a wire

[Pre-Chorus]
      C
But I walk that line

I try to keep my senses

Make it to the other side

I know the consequences
    C
and I
