Tokio Hotel – On The Edge lyrics

Its getting light outside
She is still there but no one cares
They sang her Happy Birthday yesterday without her
Do you want to see yourself flying through the night?
This gift is what you need
You're gonna be alright
Eyes close and fall

Her first time on the edge
The scars will stay forever
Side to side with death
A moment that feels better
Darkness and light are blinding her sight
She's not coming back

Its getting light outside
She cannot sleep 'cause time stands still
Someone's hand is touching her, she has no will
Each time when it hurts, she just feels so alone
She doesn't care at all
Her memories are long gone
Eyes close and fall

And closer to the edge
The scars will stay forever
Side to side with death
This time feels even better
Darkness and light are blinding her sight
She's not coming back

She shuts the door
She longs for more and more
And more
She shuts the door
She longs for more and more
And more
Just once more

Everyone is watching
Her arms are so sore
But she doesn't care anymore

And falling from the edge
The scars will stay forever
Side to side with death
This last time even better
Darkness and light are blinding her sight
She's not coming back

The sky is casting over
Her last wish stays unsaid

    Its about a girl who feels numb and disconnected from her life (happy birthday wihout her) so she turns to cutting, which makes her feel better. Of course it becomes an addiction and each time she cuts she gets closer to the "edge" of killing herself. Eventually she gives in. Its a beautiful song. I knew the german version for longer but had no idea what it meant. I love it because its so deep and I can really connect with it.

    I believe its about cutting. -and the happy birthday part I believe it could mean 2 things, one they sang happy birthday without her there, like them not caring enough about her, or 2 it could mean like they sang happy birthday 2 her but she wasnt there emotionally kinda like dead on the inside. /I think it means life is hard and things happen and can make you make bad decissions, do things to urself, etc.

    I think it is cutting or drugs. This song is pretty much saying a girl is depressed or neglected, and they said her arms are sore- cutting.
    But they also say she longs for more so she may be addicted to a drug and her arms might be sore because it could be a drug you inject into your fore arm.
    Also I think they say that the girl dies, because of she's not coming back, light blocking her sight, and flying in the night (which might mean going to heaven or being a ghost). So I'm leaning more towards cutting.
