"Edge of a Dream" as written by Wasalu Jaco, Blake Lewis, Ryan B. Tedder and Josh Hoge....
Step to the left, step to the right
The middle of the floor, feels safe tonight
Dancing on, the edge of a dream
move in close, will I like what I see

Will I face it? Can I take it?
My soul out on the line
Will the spaces, just absorb me? Will the walls live my lies?

Smiling face, that no one really knows
Singin' bout the passion in my soul
Playin' it safe, move in time with the beat
Take a chance, learn a new dance

Almost eighteen, a real lady now
I'll keep tryin' to figure this life out, I wanna figure it out

Step to the left, step to the right
The middle of the floor, feels safe tonight

    General CommentI think this song is about how she was feeling at prom her senior year in high school... does that sound about right?

    General CommentWhether it's about prom night or not, I think that this is all about the uncertainty of growing up. She doesn't quite know where she fits in, and is a little scared to 'take a chance.' She's trying to take more risks and 'figure this life out,' and the song ends with her finding a place that feels safe - at least for tonight.
