Love over gold,mind over matter

This is one of my favorite’s from Mark Knopfler (Dire straits).Watch the lyrics,the words have  deep meaning and when sung in a deeper baritone by Mark it’s pure bliss.

Feast yourself !

You walk out on the high wire                                          mark-knopfler-1
You’re a dancer on thin ice
You pay no heed to the danger
And less to advice
Your footsteps are forbidden
But with a knowledge of your sin
You throw your love to all the strangers
And caution to the wind
And you go dancing through doorways
Just to see what you will find
Leaving nothing to interfere
With the crazy balance of your mind
And when you finally reappear
At the place where you came in
You’ve thrown your love to all the strangers
And caution to the wind
It takes love over gold
And mind over matter
To do what you do that you must
When the things that you hold
Can fall and be shattered
Or run through your fingers like dust

In the You tube link below you can see the effortless fingering of guitar by Mark at the end of the song .The circus stunt artiste background gives the right environment to the theme.
