From the album Tightrope

‘Tightrope’ is a track about intimate relationships and ‘walking the tightrope’ to prove one’s worth and stability within them. “In order to love and be with me, you have to be bad enough and bold enough to walk that tightrope,” Noir muses when discussing her new single. “For me, the song represents being real, true, authentic, vulnerable, open, raw, ready, drama-free, accountable, respectful, and grounded in body, mind, spirit, and soul.”

There ain’t no safety net
There ain’t no safety net
There ain’t no safety net

There ain’t no safety net if you wanna get it on with me
You betta come ready if you wanna get it on with me
Love living on the edge if you wanna get it on with me
‘cause there’s no safety net if you wanna get it on with me

Yeh yeh

Get it on with me
Oh yeah

Baby don’t you run for cover
I want you to be my lover

Don’t be afraid come on over
I want you I don’t want no other

You gotta be bold
And know who you are
You can’t be told

‘cause my love is fierce and ferocious
It don’ broke the mold

You will not be disappointed
My love will leave you disjointed
You will see, you will see

So buck it up and get it over here

Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Please

Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Come and get it

Please
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Come and get it

Yeah yeah yeah
Come and get it
Oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh
Come and get it

Come and get it

Baby don’t ya bring no inhibitions
I’ll tear ‘em down
Won’t need no permission

Don’t bring no lies and deceit with you
If you do, my wrath will meet you

You betta come naughty
‘cause baby I ain’t into nice

I am a love daredevil
So you betta think twice

You will not be disappointed
My love will leave you disjointed
You will see, you will see

So buck it up and get it over here

Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Please

Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Come and get it

Please
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Walk that tight rope
Come and get it

Yeah yeah yeah
Come and get it
Oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh
Come and get it

Come and get it

If you fall
I might not catch you
If you fall
I might not catch you

Can you handle it
Will you risk it
Can you take it
With no safety net

Can you swing it
Can you risk it
Will you do it
With no safety net

Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-ooooooh

Repeat Chorus x1

Can you handle it
Can you risk it
Will you take it
With no safety net

Would you swing it
Would you swing it
Would you risk it
With no safety net

Would you swing it
With no safety net
Would you risk it
With no safety net

Would you try it
Would you try it
With no safety net
