I don't remember one moment I tried to forget
I lost myself yet I'm better not sad
Now I'm closer to the edge

It was a a thousand to one and a million to two
Time to go down in flames and I'm taking you
Closer to the edge

No I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No, no, no, no

Can you imagine a time when the truth ran free
A birth of a song, a death of a dream
Closer to the edge
This never ending story, paid for with pride and faith
We all fall short of glory, lost in ourself

No I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No, no, no, no

No, no, no, no
I will never forget
No, no
I will never regret
No, no
I will live my life
No, no, no, no
I will never forget
No, no
I will never regret
No, no
I will live my life

No I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No, no
No, I'm not saying I'm sorry
One day, maybe we'll meet again
No, no, no, no

Closer to the edge
Closer to the edge
No, no, no, no
Closer to the edge
Closer to the edge
No, no, no, no

Closer to the edge

    It was one of the songs that gave me faith and power when I was totally lack of it trying to survive from a really hard breakup from a mentally abusive relationship. Helped me thru the bad days and gave me hope during the good days too. This song is so important that it´s amazing how songs can really help you thru the bad times and makes you feel even better during the good times.

    Enjoy your life and we all fail at times or stumble in our lives. The important thing is to get up and embrace life to the fullest. No regrets! My wife died last year unexpectedly and this song has inspired me so much since then to just never forget her but to also go on in my life and live with no regrets. I will meet her again someday and I will be able to tell her that I was closer to the edge and almost fell off but instead I said no! The lyric -- a birth of a song and the death of a dream to me means actually my life now is like a new song that is being written everyday as I continue on in my life and the death of a dream is the life that I lost with my wife when she died.

    Well. I think it's about searching for one-self true chatacter, what mades us, ourselves. Even when it drives you to the edge. Even when it takes you to drive your close people to their own edge. That's why it says "i'm not saying i'm sorry~ one day, maybe we'll meet again" the search is personal, and not everybody around us can understand that. But maybe, in a future, they have found themselves and can accept us for who we are. But first, we have to loose ourselves. Every inch more close to the edge.

    To me this song is about things happen in life you can't change, friends come and go and family members pass on but live your life to the fullest. Every little moment, every mistake. Every step of the way make you who are you. Never give up and never give in to despair tomorrow is always a brand new day a clean slate. The pain and negativity it always passes.

    The line " hate 4 wheel driving fate" is the wriong line it may say that for these lyrics but the pictures I was looking up says "this never ending story paid for with pride and fait we all fall short of glory lost in our fate" I think this means he will never regret his mistakes and if he didn't make thwem then he would probly be setting better and bigger dreams for himself and everyone does have a different opinion to this song :)
