Tabbed by GazzaAUS
I got the lyrics from listening to the song so let me know if there are any errors.
Enjoy!

[Intro]
Dm C Am Bb Dm
C Am Bb Dm

[Verse 1]
C                             Am
   It was the strangest night
Bb                                   Dm
   The kinda scene I don't fit into
C                         Am
  It didn't feel so right
Bb                        Dm
 But you came back 'round
C                          Am
   Drifting across my sight
Bb                                Dm
  Some apparition of make believe
C                          Am       Bb
   I felt my chest go tight and I'm tumbling

[Chorus]
             C                Dm       Bb
And you said hey baby hold my hand down on the wire
       Dm              C                       Dm      Bb
Oh I'm telling you the whole thing it's just a breaking of desire
       Dm      C                 Dm     Bb
You inevitably hold on cause you always do
      Dm        C
Gotta walk that wire

C Am Bb Dm X2

[Verse 2]
                  C                                   Am
Oh I'm talking in tongues cause I'm not made of steel
Bb                              Dm
  Somebody save me from myself
C                        Am        Bb      Dm
   I'm just a man alright and I'm fumbling
C                           Am
  With all this faded light
Bb                                Dm
   Maybe the moment to make my move
C                              Am         Bb
  You hold your breath so tight as you're tumbling

[Chorus]
           C                Dm       Bb
And I said hey baby hold my hand down on the wire
     Dm              C                      Dm       Bb
I've telling you the whole time it's just a breaking of desire
      Dm                C                         Dm        Bb
Now I promise you'll be brave too because you've earned that right
      Dm        C
Gotta walk that wire

[Solo]
C Am Bb Dm X2

             C
Something in the air right
         Am            Bb
You were steady as you walked away
          Dm          C
And we're never gonna know right
          Am         Bb
But it's better than the other way

[Chorus]
           C                Dm        Bb
And I said hey baby hold my hand down on the wire
        Dm             C                   Dm         Bb
See you never would've held on without the aching of desire
               Dm      C                        C                         Dm      Bb          Dm
Know there's heaven in a folk song so just keep holding on because you're dancing on the wire

C Am Bb Dm
C Am Bb
