There ain't no reason you and me should be alone
Tonight, yeah baby
Tonight, yeah baby
I got a reason that you're who should take me home tonight

I need a man that thinks it's right when it's so wrong
Tonight, yeah baby
Tonight, yeah baby
Right on the limits where we know we both belong tonight

It's hard to feel the rush
To push the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall over in love

I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you

Another shot before we kiss the other side
Tonight, yeah baby
Tonight, yeah baby
I'm on the edge of something final we call life tonight
Alright, alright

Put on your shades 'cause I'll be dancing in the flames
Tonight, yeah baby
Tonight, yeah baby
It isn't hell if everybody knows my name tonight
Alright, alright

It's hard to feel the rush
To push the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall over in love

I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you

I'm on the edge with you

I'm on the edge with you

I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
The edge
I'm on the edge of glory
And I'm hanging on a moment with you
I'm on the edge with you

    I love this song, I heard it on the radio while in the Kroger's parking lot. My mom was in the store. I heard "New lady gaga track "edge of glory" I turned it all the way up, and listened at her beautiful voice. Half way through the song I started to tear up. It's really a great song, that will never get old.

    I almost feel like "The Edge Of Glory" is a continuation or a sequel of Lady Gaga's earlier song "Red And Blue" as Stefani Germanotta. They both have the feel of Gaga's being in love with a man who doesn't closely match her, but as we all know, opposites attract. "I need a man that thinks it's right when it's so wrong" implies that she knows he may not be the best for her, but she's already on the edge. Of falling in love with him, of glory...

    Thank you FamouslyUnknown the song is about your last moments. Lady Gaga wrote this song after watching her Grandfather die. He took one last look at her Grandmother and she said it was as if he realized that although he was dieing he was victorious. So she wrote it (: I love it.

    This is about your last moments on earth and your last truths. It's about being with the people you love before you move on to another world. Beautiful song and meaning!

    Definitely satanic lyrics... But still enjoyable, as all songs of satan's preacher, ladyboy gaga... Unfortunately i don't think anyone can stop it conquering the world and dancing in the flames...
