The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga


Suggested by ~Adrelinen

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

[Bridge:]
It's hard to feel the rush, to brush the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

[Chorus:]
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!)

[Bridge:]
It's hard to feel the rush, to brush the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

[Chorus:]
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
(You, you, you...)

[Solo saxophone]

[Chorus:]
I'm on the edge of glory, and I'm hanging on a moment of truth
I'm 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 (with you, with you, with you, with you, with you)





The Edge of Glory (registered on radio as simply "Edge of Glory") was the third single from the artist's second album,Born This Way, released in 2011.

~Veridene


Suggested by ~FadingAngel213

Strike strike
Like lightning--

Tear it all asunder

All that was built and loved
Lost in roaring thunder

Make war and madness desecrate
Tides of acheron obliterate

The breaking land consumes
The crippling skeleton
Of society 

Open arms make welcome
The powdering bones
Of you and me

The civilization 
Beleaguered by hate
Should expect entropy to infiltrate

The ground once released us
Now grapples for our return
Which nihilists with dreams unfruited 
With desperation yearn

So like this we'll go
Under under--

Strike and tear it all asunder.
