"On The Edge Of A Broken Heart" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child and Richard Sambora....
And there I stood, just like a soldier
I was though, until I saw her
I said Hello, but she just turned away

Hey Romeo, watcha doin' with my girl,
Who are you using now, well I turn and walk away (Turn and walk away)

I'm gonna please her, now you can believe it
I'll be there to catch her when she falls

Oooo, here I am (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm a man (On the edge of a broken heart)
Here we stand (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know
I'm a man on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)

I'm on the outside, looking inside
You're with him, who's on the wrong side now
Do you still think of me

I've tried to call, but no one answers
Two silhouettes, a private dancer
Lights go dim, as the music starts to fade, away (Turn and walk away)

I'm the one who needs you, now you can believe it
I'll be there to catch you when you fall

Ooo you better believe I'm the man (On the edge of a broken heart)
Here I am (On the edge of a broken heart)
And we stand (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know
I'm a man on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)

Ooohh
And when I hold out my hands I'll be reaching for you
I give it all that I've got, that's all I can do
When you're waiting for love
I'll be waiting for you (On the edge of a broken heart)
Only for you (On the edge of a broken heart)
Oh baby for you (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can, you know
I'm a man on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (Of a broken, broken, broken, broken, broken, broken, broken)
