Man on Wire, which was released in 2005, is a documentary about Philippe Petit’s high-wire walking experiences focusing on one specific walk. In 1974 he does the biggest wire walk of his life. His greatest love and greatest idea is to walk between the Twin Towers World Trade Center buildings in New York. This whole documentary is based off of Philippe Petit’s book To Reach The Clouds.

Who'd a thought that
I'd be here by myself?
Who'd a thought that
You'd be bad for my health?
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire.

Who'd a thought
About the cause and effect?
Yesterday’s love is now
Tomorrow's regret.
Now I know, now I know
I'm just a man on a wire.

No I can't look down,
I'm tryna fight the feeling
I will fall to the ground
If I ever see you, cos

I feel like
I'm walking a tightrope,
My heart is in my throat,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you.

And I've got my eyes closed,
As long as the wind blows,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you,

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

Who'd a thought
I'd see you with someone else?
Who'd a thought
That I'd be in such a mess?
Now you know, now you know
I'm just a man on a wire.

But I'll walk that line
I’ll try and keep my senses
Make it to the other side
I know the consequences, and

I feel like
I'm walking a tightrope,
My heart is in my throat,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you.

And I've got my eyes closed,
As long as the wind blows,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you,

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

The higher it gets,
The more I miss the ground.
No safety nets,
Now you’re not around.
I have to keep walking
To keep me from falling down.

Feels like
I'm walking a tightrope,
My heart is in my throat,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you.

And I've got my eyes closed,
As long as the wind blows,
I'm counting on high hopes
To get me over you, you,

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

Now I know, now I know I'm just a man on a wire, oh
