"The Edge of Tonight" as written by and John Feldmann Alexander Gaskarth....
It's a long way home,
When you're on your own,
And your only friends are traffic lights,
Speaking in Morse code,
Yeah the road is long,
And I am tired,
But with you on my horizon,
I will drive until it all breaks down

'Cause I can't breathe without you near,
You keep me safe,
Keep me sane,
Keep me honest,

You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight,
Chasing tomorrow,
With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
You're like a siren in the dark,
You're the beat playing in my heart,
You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

Spent my whole damn life,
Trying to get things right,
And for every one of my mistakes,
You gave me all these chances,
When the roads too long,
I am tired,
Baby you are my horizon,
And I'll drive until it all breaks down,

You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight,
Chasing tomorrow,
With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
You're like a siren in the dark,
You're the beat playing in my heart,
You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

(You keep me safe,
You keep me sane,
You keep me honest, honest, honest, oh woah
You keep me safe,
You keep me sane,
You keep me honest)

You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight,
Chasing tomorrow,
With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
You're like a siren in the dark,
You're the beat playing in my heart,
You keep me alive,
On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

We're on the edge of tonight
The edge of tonight
You keep me safe,
You keep me sane,
You keep me honest, honest, honest (Standing on the edge of tonight)
On the edge of tonight
The edge of tonight
The edge of tonight

    My InterpretationI think that is song is about depression or any other mental disorder. I know that the only reason that I haven't killed myself is because of a special someone, and I think this is just like that.

    'Cause I can't breathe without you near,
    You keep me safe,
    Keep me sane,
    Keep me honest,


    those lyrics are showing that you're hanging on a thread, but there's someone making you hold on and not let go.

    Spent my whole damn life,
    Trying to get things right,
    And for every one of my mistakes,
    You gave me all these chances,
    When the roads too long,
    I am tired,
    Baby you are my horizon,
    And I'll drive until it all breaks down,


    these lyrics are saying that you've made some mistakes in the past, but they are going to look past it and help you move on from it......


    that's just what I think..... Also I want to idea that most suicidal thoughts happen mostly at night.... Edge of tonight (I think im the only who think like that but oh well)
