Lyrics

Full Version

Austin:
Yeah
Woah
I'm walking on a thin line
And my hands are tied
Got no where to hide

I'm standing at a crossroads
Don't know where to go
Feeling so exposed

Ally:
Yeah I'm caught in between
Where I'm going and where I've been
But I know, there's no turning back
Yeah

Both:
It’s like I’m balanced on the edge
It’s like I’m hanging by a thread
But I’m still gonna push ahead
So I tell myself
Yeah, I tell myself

Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down

Don't Look Down-35-

Austin:
I'm holding on by my fingertips
Never lose my grip
I can handle this
I'm so strong I'm unbreakable
You can push and pull
You can't make me fall

Ally:
So I'm caught in between
Where I'm going and where I've been
But I know, I'm not turning back
Yeah

Both:
It’s like I’m balanced on the edge
It’s like I’m hanging by a thread
But I’m still gonna push ahead
So I tell myself
Yeah, I tell myself

Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down

Austin:
It’d be so easy
Just to run
It’d be so easy
To just give up

Ally:
But I'm not that girl who go turn my back
There’s no turning back

Both:
No turning back

Ally:
It’s like I’m balanced on the edge

Austin:
It’s like I’m hanging by a thread

Ally:
But I’m still gonna push ahead
So I tell myself
Yeah I tell myself

Both:
Don’t look down, down, down, down
(Ally: Dooowwwnnn!)
Don’t look down, down, down, down
Don’t look down, down, down, down
(Austin: Don't look down! Don't look down!)
Don’t look down, down, down, down!

Episode Version

Austin: Yeah, whoa
I'm walking on a thin line
And my hands are tied
Got nowhere to hide
I'm standing at a crossroads
Don't know where to go
Feeling so exposed

Ally: Yeah I'm caught in between
Where I'm going and where I've been, yeah
But I know there's no turning back
Yeah!

Both: It's like I'm balanced on the edge
It's like I'm hanging by a thread
But I'm still gonna push ahead
And I tell myself
Yeah I tell myself

Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down

Austin: It'd be so easy just to run
It'd be so easy to just give up
Ally: But I'm not that girl who's gonna turn my head
No turning back
Both: No turning back

Austin: It's like I'm balanced on the edge
Ally: It's like I'm hanging by a thread
Both: But I'm still gonna push ahead
And I tell myself
Yeah I tell myself

Don't look down down down down (Ally: Doooooooown)
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down (Austin: Don't look down, don't look down)
Don't look down down down down

Solo Version

I'm walking on a thin line
And my hands are tied
Got nowhere to hide
I'm standing at a crossroads
Don't know where to go
Feeling so exposed

Yeah I'm caught in between where I'm going and where I've been, yeah
But no there's no turning back
Yeah

It's like I'm balanced on the edge
It's like I'm hanging by a thread
But I'm still gonna push ahead
And I tell myself
Yeah I tell myself

Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down

It'd be so easy just to run
It'd be so easy to just give up
No turning back

It's like I'm balanced on the edge
It's like I'm hanging by a thread
But I'm still gonna push ahead
And I tell myself
Yeah I tell myself

Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
Don't look down down down down
