I had eyes but I could not see, I hurt everybody who believed in me
I had it all but I lost the key, oh
I saw the world through fogged-up glasses, like some Lothario making passes
I showed the world just what an ass is, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
Trouble in paradise, treadin' on the thinnest ice
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
Cuttin' with a razor blade, spendin' every cent I made
Over the edge

I dreamed of standin' on my own two feet
My fists held high and I clenched my teeth
But I'd wake up to the same old me, oh
I was living a lie, but you brought me truth
Afraid to cry, but you taught me to
You stood beside me, now I'll stand by you, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I wasn't foolin' anyone, playin' with a loaded gun
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
I was numbing all the pain, you taught me how to feel again

If I had died, it would have been a shame
They'd have said "he only had himself to blame"
You saved my life when you called my name, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I was numbing all the pain, you showed me how to feel again
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
When you looked me in the eyes, you finally made me recognize

Oh-oh, over the edge
Oh-oh, over the edge
Oh-oh, over the edge
Oh-oh, over the edge
