BLUE OCTOBER


Balance Beam Lyrics

I haven't been quite the same
So sure the story of my life would never change
But in a bright eyed way
She rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that I'm about to sing
She's a magnetic girl
That I hardly even know
So this is not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
Every man should know that...
[Chorus]
One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her how your feeling
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the walls, you've got to make 'em bend
Yeah, you've got to show her that she is the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
We took a walk in the rain
I suggested, she confessed
There's a park nearby to cast that shade
Stay cool but I'm giddy like a school boy
You've got to handle with care, this is not a toy
Gradually we touched
Though our clothes were wet
We sat and smiled
I never thought I'd smile so much
The first kiss always says the most
[Repeat Chorus]
Everyone should know that[Repeat Chorus]

Some kind of fairy tale.
Some kind of fairy tale.

Everyone should know that.

'3: gotta tell her how youre feelin' There ARE two versions, but the correct one off the album 'Consent to Treatment' has 'Tell her how you're feelin' SO technically these are incorrect.

these lyrics are correct. The song that I downloaded is as written above. The last few sites I looked did not match. I think there just might be 2 diff recordings

There is only one version of this song recorded; any other versions are the variations Justin sometimes does when performing live. These lyrics are incorrect.

There are 2 versions of the song, one is what's is posted here & the other has a small deviation. The one that is my favorite is like what Samm said - 3: You gotta tell her that she's pretty, and ..
