"Close To The Edge" as written by Sacha Skarbek, James Bryan Mccollum and Lisa Marie Presley....
There there hey now,
What’s this I’m hearing about
The butterfly flew into the ground
One too many nets around
And you go to him like a mosquito to skin

I see you wanna be so close to the edge
And you’re running you’re running
You’re running without your feet
You believe there’s a ground
If you step over and you fall down
But there may not be

There there hey now,
What’s that your talking about
Your cup runneth over and out
One too many cups around
And you’re a mess, you wanna confess

I see you wanna be so close to the edge
And you’re running you’re running
You’re running without your feet
You believe there’s a ground
If you step over and you fall down
But there may not...

I wish there was something so profound
That I could say
You know it’s bad for you
But you still want to do it anyway
And you go to him like a mosquito to skin

I see you wanna be so close to the edge
And you’re running you’re running
You’re running without your feet
You believe there’s a ground
If you step over and you fall down
But there may not be

    My OpinionSadly, I think this song is about her father and ex-husband Michael Jackson's battles with addiction. This line is the saddest of the whole song, to me:

    I wish there was something so profound
    That I could say
    You know it’s bad for you
    But you still want to do it anyway
