LyricsEdit

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
But no,
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

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 gonna 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: Doooowwwn!)
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!

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first duet featured in Austin & Ally
  • This is the first time Ally sings on stage in Austin & Ally.
  • This song was originally written to be performed as a solo, but after Taylor Swift hearing about it requested it to be a duet. She was knocked out by Dez before she got to perform and this forced Ally to take the stage (for the first time in a long time).
  • The title and backbone of the chorus are based on Ally's experience in the water park. Scared of going down the big water slide, Austin told her that "no matter how scared [she] was, just push ahead and don't look down," to encourage her.
