Song #8: "On the Edge"

My latest song is intended for a female voice. Here is the tune (.mp3), the sheet music (.pdf) and me singing the song, poorly (.wav). The full lyrics are below (not too meaningful without the music). Midi file available upon request. Both the tune and the words are my own original work.

On the Edge
Life is just a movie after all.
You got a hero standing tall.
You got a wall of tragedy
That he must pass through.

I can't be that hero anymore.
I don't know what I'm fighting for.
I know that heroes sometimes lose,
Can't always have the life they choose.
Living on the edge,
Dancing on the ledge,
Dancing all alone.

He will always have a place in her heart.
It seemed like destiny from the start.
But when she gave it all away,
He took it all and went away.
Living on the edge,
Always on the edge.
She was meant to fall.

When I needed a friend,
I found in the end
No one I could turn to.
So, I made up my mind,
No rescue this time.
Only my ghost and me.

Life is an illusion after all.
We watch the curtain rise and fall.
We are persuaded to believe
In ever after.
Living on the edge,
Always on the edge.
Take my heart off the shelf,
Bring it out for myself,
'Cause I don't want to leave it at home.
Living on the edge,
Dancing on the ledge,
Dancing all alone.
