    Question explanation about a song

    Hi,

    I've got a question. My grandmother died last sunday and we cremated her last thursday. During the service there was a song from Katie Melua. The song's called : Nine Million Bicycles in Beijing. My grandfather asked me to translate the song into dutch but in that song there is a phrase I don't understand.

    The interlude the text is this:
    We're high on the wire
    with the world in our sight
    and I'll never tire
    of the love that you give me every night.

    What does the phrase: "we're high on the wire with the world in our sight" mean?


    I hope that someone can help my grandfather and me!


    Thx!
    Gladys

    Re: explanation about a song

    I think it is using the image of the high wire - like the one is this photograph:
