Oh yeah, oh yeah Sometimes the edge serves As more than a friend Than you thought it would be And the pages you write In your journal each night Are your only release And the mask you put on It?s like words in a song But there's more to be seen And the failures you see Don't seem failures to me here at all Oh, I'm begging you, no There's more life left to go Oh, I'm begging you, please ?Cause I don't want you to leave Alone as you walk Through a crowd and it?s awkward Like nobody sees And you can't help but wonder Would anyone come after you If you'd leave So a pain grows inside And a fear comes alive Like you'll never be free But there's no pain you feel That I know love can't heal here at all Oh, I'm begging you, no There's more life left to go Oh, I'm begging you, please ?Cause I, I don't want you to leave me To leave me here on my own There's nothing to run from Oh, there's nothing but fear inside you Oh, I just hope I can find you And tell you that I know you'll smile again Oh, I'm begging you, no More life left to go Oh, I'm begging you, please ?Cause I don't want you to leave

    General Comment:it's about suicide and someone trying to stop someone from jumping
    "Sometimes the edge serves as more than a friend then you thought it would be" then the chorus "Oh I'm begging you no, there's more life left to go/Oh I'm begging you please, cause I don't want you to leave"

    pretty simple. and tragically beautiful instrumentals and use of a synthesizer. i love this song!

    General Comment:It's simple, yet so beautiful.
    Definitely about trying to stop someone from committing suicide.

    I love the line "and the failures you see, don't seem failures to me".
    This band never ceases to amaze me.

    My Interpretation:To me.. This song is representing all that my friends are trying to tell me. I have been abused in my life; sexually, verbally, physically... And this song is one that I found that is telling me to stay strong, that I have people behind me that will catch me if and when I fall. I have therapy every week and I listen to this song every time I start to think of hurting myself and it stops me before I do anything stupid.
