I had eyes but I could not see
I hurt everybody who believed in me
I had it all but I lost the key, oh

I saw the world through fogged up glasses
Like some Lothario making passes
I showed the world just what an ass is, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
Trouble in paradise, treadin' on the thinnest ice
Oh, oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
Cuttin' with a razor blade, spendin' every cent I made
Over the edge

I dreamed of standin' on my own two feet
My fists held high and I clenched my teeth
But I'd wake up to the same old me, oh

I was living a lie but you brought me truth
Afraid to cry but you taught me to
You stood beside me, now I'll stand by you, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I wasn't foolin' anyone, playin' with a loaded gun
Oh, oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
I was numbing all the pain, you taught me how to feel again

If I had died, it would have been a shame
They'd have said, "He only had himself to blame"
You saved my life when you called my name, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I was numbing all the pain, you showed me how to feel again
Oh, oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
When you looked me in the eyes, you finally made me recognize

Oh, oh, over the edge
Oh, oh, over the edge
Oh, oh, over the edge
Oh, oh, over the edge
