The song kicks off with an up-beat, stick-in-your-head, e. piano progression that is soon joined by melodic guitar riffing, and light percussion. As the drums lead in the transition into the first verse, the bass enters laying down a groove with the entrance of vocals singing, “I’ve given up trying to keep our story straight/And making sense from tangle lines of love and hate,” displaying clear vocals with a laid-back tone making for easy listening.
“Walking On A Wire” is about a relationship that you are trying to make work, even though it never has in the past. The verse seamlessly transitions to the chorus as he sings, “Baby you and me we’re always walking on a wire/And wherever we’re stepping seems we’re only getting higher/Yeah darling I know you’re a long way off the ground/But just try not to look down and maybe we might make it this time.” The song continues to progress breaking with stellar key solos and an enticing bridge that keeps the song compelling throughout its entirety. The key solo is followed by another chorus before breaking into a exciting guitar solo.
