"Close To The Edge" as written by Mark Anthony Owen, Guy David Batson and Henry Priestman....
I was into
Like a sudden fix from a bowl of sugar, to you
And all that you were standing for,
Yeah, you knew

I was so caught up that I could barely move,
To stop you,
From having everything and more

Do you pick me up
To put me under
Break me in
So you can choose your ways to put me back again?

[Chorus]
You can leave a hole like a nail in my head
You can leave me turned into nothing instead
You can leave me close to the edge
You won't ever hear me hit the ground

Are you into
Have you given up, have we gone to far?
Do you wander, or are you staying where we are?
I abhor you
Yet all the while still I adore knowing you
And all that might have been before

Do I say too much, to take you over?
Break me in
So I can choose my ways to put me back again

[Chorus]

'Cause I'm floored but not broken,
And I'm scarred but I'll heal
Yeah I'm blissfully tortured, naked and real
And I'm stung and I'm sorry,

But I'm calm now and clear
Like the sky hanging over,
Like the scratch on my shoulder,
That I no longer feel, feel

I was in too, too close to the edge, too close to the edge

[Chorus]

    Song MeaningSimple interpretation, I'm sure there's more meaningful but here's mine:
    I'm over you, You're trying to crush me but I'm trying not to let that happen.
    'too close to the edge' I'm too close to a breakdown
    'I'm scarred but I'll heal' What you did to me will ruin me forever but I'll get over it the best I can
    'The scratch on my shoulder that I no longer feel' I'm getting better, the damage you caused is still evident but not affecting me anymore
    'choose my ways to put me back again' rebuild what I let break
    First verse: You were my quick fix but I let you control me. That was what went wrong.
    Chorus: Whatever you do won't ruin me anymore.
