about

Sometimes you lose people who are really close and you feel like it's not worth going on.
But it is!!

lyrics

I feel you near, and bury my face in troubled hands
And pray that you somehow hear, nobody else could understand
The things that I just can’t say, ‘though god knows sometimes I’ve really tried
The words are still locked away down deep inside

I’m standing on the edge of my world
feeling nothing but my feet on crumbling ground
I’m standing on the edge of my life
trying not to look down

Here with you, reading your lifetime carved in stone
Died at the age of two, nobody knows how you’d have grown
If I could hold your hand and read you just one more nursery rhyme
If I could hold your hand, for one more time ... one more time

I’m standing on the edge of my world
feeling nothing but my feet on crumbling ground
I’m standing on the edge of my life
trying not to look down

so take me too, I don’t belong here anymore
I want to be with you, there’s nothing left to be here for
Leave all the tears behind; leave them to wash the pain away
The contract is sealed and signed, I’m on my way, back to you

I’m standing on the edge of your world
feeling nothing but the warmth of you again
I’m standing on the edge of my life
Stepping out of the pain
