"The Ledge" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
Countin' on my fingers
Countin' on my toes
Slippin' through your fingers
Watchin' how it grows
You can love me baby but you can't walk out
Someone oughta tell you what it's really all about
Do you ever wonder
Do you ever hate
Six feet under
Someone who can wait
You can love me baby but you can't walk out
Someone oughta tell you
Oughta tell you what it's really all about
You're never gonna make it baby
Oohh you're never gonna
Make it babe
Make it babe
Make it baby

Countin' on my fingers
Countin' on my toes
Slippin' through the ringer
Watchin' how it goes
You can love me baby but you can't walk out
Someone oughta tell you what it's really all about
Buy another fixture
Tell another lie
Paint another picture
See who's surprised
You can love me baby but you can't walk out
Someone oughta
Someone oughta tell you what it's reallly all about
You're never gonna make it baby
Oohh you're never gonna make it baby
Oohh you're never gonna
Make it babe
Make it babe
Make it baby

You can love me baby but you can't walk out
You can love me baby but you can't walk out
You can love me baby but you can't walk out

Someone oughta someone oughta
Someone oughta someone oughta
Someone oughta someone oughta
Someone oughta someone oughta

You can love me baby but you can't walk out

Someone oughta tell you
Oughta tell you what it's really all about

    General CommentThe sound of this song is amazing and it always sucks me in; but I really don't get the 'you can love me baby but you can't walk out' line. *confused*

    General CommentI also love the sound of this song. It's an amazing song.

    I think the song is about not wanting to admit that you're in love with a person. He think that someone should tell her that she clearly is in love with him. And he's waiting till she admits it.

    Sorry for my bad English xD Greetings from Holland. X
