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

    This song is an inspiration, to myself and my friends,
    Music is my life and without it my life is ordinary, and I hate ordinary.
    Being known for something other than being me is the best feelig in the world

    The line that says 'hate 4 wheel driving fate' if you listen closely can also be interpreted as 'Paid for with pride and faith' or 'Paid for with pride and fate' I'm not quite sure what meaning that that holds but i thought i could contribute it =)

    The lyrics on the second line are incorrect. I dont think its "I lost myself yet im better not sad" In my opnion I think it is "I lost myself yes its better not said". I love this group and everything they are about. Awesome. The video is trying to bring peace and harmony to the world.

    How good is this song? It's really good! If you watch it with the video you get the full effect of it, and how people actually want the world to be a good place and how music is a big part of their lives. If everyone listened to this maybe the world would be better, who knows? Ima shut up now :)
