I walk alone at night
Raindrops and streetlights
Reflecting flashes
Across the asphalt

In a second's time
I might refrain from breathing
With her hand in mine
Something is breaking faster
Through a blackened sky
I see a world unravel
I look into her eyes to see the end

In a second's time
The walls swim cold electric
With a tearful smile
She whispers my undoing
In the hollow night
I find no trace of comfort
I turn just in time to see the end
I walk the edge

Standing on the velvet edge
Looking backwards in the rain
I wonder just how many times
I've watched you walk away
All that fascination bleeds
Is a piece of infinity
In frustration still believing
What I know will never be

In a second's time
I might refrain from breathing
With her hand in mine
Something is breaking faster
Through a blackened sky
I see a world unravel
I look into her eyes to see the end

In a second's time
The walls swim cold electric
With a tearful smile
She whispers my undoing
In the hollow night
I find no trace of comfort
I turn just in time to see the end
I see the end

Blurry eyes growing weak
Fading with the light of time
Piercing nothing to redeem
The emptiness with lies
Pride has raped the sorrowed heart
And stolen what I love,
Though the cut is digging still
How much deeper it could go...

In a second's time
I might refrain from breathing
With her hand in mine
Something is breaking faster
Through a blackened sky
I see a world unravel
I look into her eyes to see the end

In a second's time
The walls swim cold electric
With a tearful smile
She whispers my undoing
In the hollow night
I find no trace of comfort
I turn just in time to see the end

Why did you come here,
Just to break my heart again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here,
Just to sever my last remaining thread
Why did you come here
Just to watch me fall again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here?
I walk the edge

In a second's time
I might refrain from breathing
With her hand in mine
Something is breaking faster
Through a blackened sky
I see a world unravel
I look into her eyes to see the end

In a second's time
The walls swim cold electric
With a tearful smile
She whispers my undoing
In the hollow night
I find no trace of comfort
I turn just in time to see the end

Why did you come here,
Just to break my heart again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here,
Just to sever my last remaining thread
Why did you come here
Just to watch me fall again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here?

Why did you come here,
Just to break my heart again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here,
Just to sever my last remaining thread?
Why did you come here
Just to watch me fall again?
I walk the edge
Why did you come here?
I walk the edge.
