"THE EDGE"

Verse 1
Happens slowly one move at a time,
Like a player in a game.
Take a little side step over here, over there,
‘Til real soon right and wrong seem the same.
And black and white become a little gray.

Refrain
Oh, don’t lose control,
Somebody’s looking for a piece of your soul.
Back off, off of the ledge,
Gets kinda shakey when you live on the edge.

Verse 2
“Push aside the straight and narrow way,” you say,
“After all, who really needs the rules?”
Won’t be long before that sly old fox
Will start playing you for a fool.

Chorus
You’d better
Move away now, just one step
Could spell the tale between life and death.
Pushing your luck will catch up with you one day,
Like sitting on a fence, or on top of a ledge, you’re playing with fire,
When you’re living on the edge.

Repeat Refrain

Verse 3
“Just take one,” the serpent said to Eve.
You see, he’s been playing a long, long time.
It’s no new trick, once he’s got your ear
He will seep his poison into your mind. --
“Just an inch,” you say, ”is all he’ll get. I’ll just kick back, enjoy a while.”
But pretty soon you’ll find he’s made his nest, ‘cause if you give him an inch, he’ll take a mile.

Chorus
Move away now, just one step
Could spell the tale between life and death.
Pushing your luck will catch up with you one day,
Like sitting on a fence, or on top of a ledge, you’re playing with fire,
When you’re living on the edge.

Lead break: ------

Chorus
C’mon, won’t you
Move away now, just one step
Could spell the tale between life and death.
Pushing your luck will catch up with you one day,
Like sitting on a fence, or on top of a ledge, you’re playing with fire,
When you’re living on the edge.

Repeat Refrain six times
