You said you'd stay, I said I'd wait
All those words were spoke in vain
I still recall the bitter taste, I guess some things never change

And then I think of yesterday and every promise that you made
I never thought I'd be the one that you would break

But I will fight until the day the world stops turning
And they will fall to ashes, I will just keep burning
But tonight, I need you to save me
I'm too close to breaking
I see the light
I am standing on the edge of my life
Standing on the edge of my life
Standing on the edge

So this is how it all turns out, you're the hero and I'm left out
I should have known you couldn't stand up for me and be a man
I still have dreams of you at night
I can't tell the dark from light
I never thought I'd be the one you'd leave behind

But I will fight until the day the world stops turning
And they will fall to ashes, I will just keep burning
But tonight, I need you to save me
I'm too close to breaking
I see the light
I am standing on the edge of my life

With which step, I hold my breath
And I tangle in your spider webs
I choke, how could I fall?
And I wonder if you ever cared at all

But I will fight until the day the world stops turning
And they will fall to ashes, I will just keep burning

But tonight, I need you to save me
I'm too close to breaking
I see the light
I am standing on the edge of my life
Standing on the edge of my life
Standing on the edge of my life
I am standing on the edge of my life
