Overboard

Standing on the edge of decision,
To walk through fire
Or turn and run
Again

Standing on the edge of dreams,
I fear to wake up,
To see the evil waiting
For me

Standing on the edge of death,
I see your face above me
But cannot speak the words of comfort
To you

Standing on the edge of my doom,
The black lands lie before me
I want to run but I know
I cannot

Standing on the edge of my fate,
A pitiful creature begs my mercy
And in his eyes I see
Myself

Standing on the edge of horror,
Holding my sting to your throat
I come back to myself and see
Your fear

Standing on the edge of darkness,
I cannot see in front of me
And I never hear Her
Behind me

Standing on the edge of fire,
My foe approaches in the dark
And rips the Precious away
From me

Standing on the edge of pain,
An agony I have never known
As you hold my bleeding hand
In yours

Standing on the edge of happiness,
Almost I can believe its mine
But I just can’t bring myself
To smile

Standing on the edge of rest,
My burden gone, I finally wake
My quest achieved, I sleep
In peace

Standing on the edge of time,
Falling off the edge of life
I see the tear upon your cheek
As through the mist we say
Farewell
